Stand in line and wait your turn, it's well worth the effort. Good sized portions and very reasonably priced!

“Best food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A buffet-style restaurant, favored by locals as well as tourists, it offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I was living in Jaco, I ate there almost every day. Service is great and a good choice of food along with huge plates. For just 5 dollars!!

“Decent food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is probably the most popular 'local' spot to eat for decent food at a reasonable price. I spent a year in Jaco and ate here once a week.

“Great local cusine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Lots of locals eat here and I can see why. My wife and I had a huge dinner for $12.
To get there go toward the beach at the corner where the fancy lobster restaurant on the strip is. Look for the blue Pepsi canopy.
