5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2015

Large burrito and quesadillas are delicious. Fast and affordable for a budget trip with good food. Everything was fresh.

“Best tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

They have a very limited menu, but you'd expect them to deliver great food if they only make 5 different things! Tacos are great here, prob the best on in Tamarindo. This place is at the very back of a mini food area with small food stands. Very casual place to spot and grab a snack.

“Love the "TamaGringo" taco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2015 via mobile

after eating there a couple times I found my favorite!! TamaGringo tacos. You get two large tacos with guacamole for one price, but one will likely fill you up!! Bring a friend!

“¡Quesadillas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2015

Super friendly staff!

The quesadillas are great value - you get 3 'slices' - with a big blob of guacamole and a nice little side salad as well. If you like it a bit spicy you can always add some picante to them!

I have only eaten the chicken quesadillas from there but they have more on offer!
