Nice little restaurant in downtown Jaco. Was given the referral from our hotel about their great burritos! If you're looking for a good burrito at a reasonable price, this is the place to get it!!!

They had live music when we had dinner. The restaurant is serviced by three or more restaurants around to create a rich menu of food items.

I wanted something without meat so they let me have the "made to order" option and I had The BEST burrito. The traditional Costa Rican drink topped it off. Great service too.
