I'm spicy!

This was the only place in Dominical we could find to fix our spicy cravings. The portions are enormous and only too spicy if you request it! The wings were so good we had them with breakfast the next day. The atmosphere? Our waiter, Wayne (and his dog, Maggie) gave us a hug upon leaving. Enough... read more

Food is good, service is good, and drinks are good. Three very important things. We ordered wings and burgers, everyone was very satisfied. Storm fries are a must. Atmosphere is nice on top of the hill. We would of ate here multiple times on our trip if we had found it sooner.

You will have to climb a steep hill in your 4x4 to get here, but it is worth it. These were the best wings we have ever had. We loved the honey garlic wings. The salad was also great. We did not get to try the burgers, but they looked awesome and huge. The serving sizes are big, so one... More

This place is on the road between Dominical and Uvita. It's off the beaten path in the most literal way. You have to drive through dense underbrush about a half mile almost straight up to get there--but once you do, there's this open-air oasis of Americana in the middle of the jungle, with absolutely great burgers and wings, beer, mixed...

This is a must stop every time we visit this area. They say they're known for their wings and they're good but it's the burgers that knock it out of the park for me. And the house cut fries! The service can be a bit slow but who's in a hurry in CR anyway... The drive up the mountain is... More

We stumbled upon this place during an ATV ride - what a find!! It's quite a ways off the main road, but well worth the uphill trek. The bar is decked out in Pittsburgh Steelers paraphernalia and boasts more types of wings than we knew existed, ranging from mild to heart attack inducing hot. They also pour their drinks strong....

I have eaten at the Roger for years and always enjoy it. Great food, good service and oftentimes good music. Word is, the owner is going to add pulled pork and chicken breast sammiches to the menu which will make ALL of his year-round, loyal, local patrons VERY happy and probably save him a slew of false, crappy reviews.
