Getting there is a feat, eating there is awesome !

We heard about the place and decided to find it. Look closely for the sign because its not was to see and remember, they don't open unto 4. We got there early and Wayne was great, treating us to beers and giving us the history of the place. The owners came from Buffalo, NY so they know how to do... read more

Now I accept that after a month on rice and beans I may be biased but I honestly don't think that it's effecting my views. These burgers are world class. And I mean world class. Juicy, tasty, perfectly cooked and served. And then the wings! Unreal. Even if this was a dump I'd advocate making the effort but the location... More

We went to Jolly Roger on a suggestion from some other tourists. Hwy 34 in Costa Rica is NOT known for it's effective street signs or ANY signs for that matter! But we found their sign and made the trek up the hill. All I can say is.. It was well worth the trip. Super friendly people and awesome wings,... More

A fun restaurant if you like wings. I'm not usually a fan because I don't like the skin. However, these wings had very crispy skin which was delicious. The restaurant is small, open-air with a roof. The prices are reasonable. For those who don't like wings, the burger was gigantic and very tasty.

If you are up for a long drive up a steep dirt road with ocean views, check this place out for sure. Its as American as it gets though, so don't expect to see locals. Their wings are tasty and the burgers too. Quality of the food seems really good. People are friendly but sometimes they feel a little too... More

If you love a good burger, this is the place. They're actually known for their wings (lots of flavors!) but I was dying for a burger and fries and I knew, from our last trip, that Jolly's had the best (IMO anyway). We went up on a Sunday evening, in pouring rain, and had a great time. Got a table,... More

We visited Jolly Rodgers on a Wedbesday evening and although it was pretty busy we did get a table. The chicken wings are it die for!! We also enjoyed the live music. I would highly recommend this place. There are only two servers though so be a little patient. You can always go up to the bar and order drinks... More

I am a meat lover but I try very hard to stay away from it. After I went to Jolly Rogers I can't stop thinking of their burgers and chinking wings, so no need to say more! Chill atmosphere, great food, good service and friendly staff!
