“Muy Tico!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This restaurant is conveniently located on the old highway about a mile east of Atenas, near the monument to the oxcart drivers. It is very popular with locals and tourists. It is easy to spend a good part of an evening there enjoying pork ribs and your favorite drink, and absorbing the atmosphere.

“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This location seems to be busy and many people stop to eat here so we decided to give it a try. We found the food mostly greasy deep fried and won't go back. However it must be enjoyed by others judging by the amount of cars there.
