“good place in a bad town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Good food and huge portions, friendly and professional service and there was a cool funky band playing the night we visited. Yet Jaco itself is a strange hole, full of the worst kind of tourists, hookers and stuff like that. Avoid if you can; if you go, Los Amigos is the place to eat.

pepabou,


Thank you for taking time away from your vacation to give us a nice review......Yes, Jaco as a town has earned a bad rep over the years however established long term business's such as Los Amigos and others have worked hard over the past few years with the local municipality to help improve the standards of our area. If you choose to return you will find a NEWER, SAFE and more tourist FRIENDLY Jaco

“Best restaurant in Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Best burgers in town, because the meat is imported from the US. The chicken wings and fries are awesome. Big ___ Smoothies. I ate here at least once a week for a year and I never had a bad meal.

“USDA MEAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

For travelers from America who are picky about where there meat comes from this is the place for you!. It is an American bar in the middle of Jaco, showcasing NFL football logos, and other sports. They have great burgers!

“Drink & Watch Sports, Food expensive & short on portions,”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Go there to drink and watching sports on the large wall on the patio is excellent ... as to the food the title pretty much says it all.

We see your disappointment is based solely on food pricing & quantity, not food quality or service and that you compliment the amenities that our establishment offers in addition to food and drink such as TV, sports via satellite systems on 9 screens and A/C....

.For guests traveling on a strict budget and looking for low cost deals we always recommend that they try the local buffet (all you can pile on)sodas that are not forced to consider additional expenses such as full table service and climate controlled dinning rooms when pricing out their dishes.

Jaco also offers fast food options that are more directed at the thrifty diners budget than the guest looking for more specialized full service establishments.

Thank you for taking the time to review us and Happy Dinning on your travels!!
