The restaurant was very nice as well as the staff. The pizza was good. I liked watching several resident monkeys as they were very comfortable and familiar with the place. I recommend to anyone looking to have a close encounter with monkeys and dine on pizza.

Went there for lunch with the kids. All of them ate hot dog and fries which they enjoyed. You can see the staff is attentive and my pizza was really good. I would definitely recommend.

Stopped in after a long day at the beach to grab a pizza and it was delicious! Not to mention the amazing sangria made by the wonderful bartender Andres. He has surely perfected the recipe and gave me a sample then a cup to take for the road! Best service our whole trip! If you go ask for Andrés to... More

We loved the vibe - relaxed, great conversation, great food and fun drinks! Thought it might be touristy but based on the reviews we went and were glad we did. The pizza was outstanding and everything was super fresh. They were crowded but very attentive service. We really enjoyed it and it was someplace we would have returned to if... More

In my mind, there is only one other place that ranked high on my list and now it is #2. The pizza is AMAZING! It is not greasy and the mozzarella they use there is a little softer than ours ad it melts perfectly over the crust. This is a MUST try! Service was okay, but the drinks were AWESOME... More

We had heard good things about El Wagon from people we had met on different tours in the MA area. We had had our fair share of Costa Rican food & were in the mood for something from home (US). We both decided to get hot dogs & then share an order of fries & onion rings. Everything hit the... More
