“Very Good Typical Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We loved it. We hit this place on our first night and found very good typical food, if a bit touristy. We had the volcano rice which was really just fried rice. The portions were large and the service was outstanding!

“recomended and worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Outdoor picnic tables but clean and food is really pretty good. I had the volcano rice which is basically fried rice cleverly shaped like a volcano. Nice portions. The rib special was pricey but you got big huge ribs and lots of sides...too much for one person. Friendly wait staff and fast service.

Try the traditional Costa Rican food here, it was delicious. It was next to Burger King so easy to find.
