5 minutes drive west from Loquillo centre, on the right hand side before you reach the Kioscos food precinct. A busy, lively place with good table service and a menu to please all needs.

Located off of Route 3. While menu doesn't have a huge amount of varieties it covers all the basics from soups, salads, burgers, steaks, chicken, and ribs. I have visited a number of times and never have had anything but a great meal. Awesome happy hour and specials were very good and very reasonable.. I had a skirt steak cooked... More

I expected a good meal based on the reviews I had seen, but my food was no good. My husbands was ok. The service was good. Friendly waitress & the manager was gracious & refunded my meal with out me even asking. Hope you have better luck here as other travelers did.

We stopped in for drinks which were very reasonably priced. $4.25 for my husbands crown and Coke. And decided to try the ribs. They were fall off the bone tender, juicy and delicious. We will do that again. Entrees range from $10-$20. We held back on the full 5 stars as we didn't care for the rustic ambiance.

To me this is a typical american Pub/Bar; therefore don't order anything fancy. Stick to the burgers and you'll be fine. My husband and i ordered the burgers and they were awesome! My kids ordered a seafood meal and steak wrap; and those didn't seem to get too many stars.
