“Best Al Pastor in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Honestly, the place is not pretty, but that Al Pastor is just the best I've had in CR. Regarding the menu, its pretty much the same stuff you get in every other Mexican restaurant, but their Al Pastor is definitely what puts them up there, nobody can touch them. They could use a little bit of renovating, but whenever I go there, the decor is the last thing on my mind.

“It's not worth it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Been to their restaurant and also tried their branches at the shopping malls. For the price you pay and the crappy food you get, it makes a zillion more sense to drive to a restaurant called Huaraches that's located in Plaza Viquez. You just can't compare them, in my opinion... the best!

“Been there once - don't know if I will go again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

My friend was raving about Fogoncito - been there once with her and not sure that food justifies the price. Not my kind of place. Period.
