“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

My husband and I discovered this place a couple of months ago and have been going there almost every other week since. So far, everything we have tried on the menu is delicious. Their mariscada (seafood soup) is amazing! Our absolute favorite is the carne asada which is only $6 as a lunch special with rice and beans. The servers are very pleasant and the atmosphere is perhaps exactly what you would find if you were in Central America living up to its name "Típico". We adore this restaurant!

“Pretty Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is mostly Central American food. It's pretty good. They have great lunch specials for about $6 which is a great value. It's a relaxed atmosphere, no need to dress to impress there. The food is good and so is the staff.

“Very good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I have a hot lunch here 3 days a week, best value in town. Their lunch special is $6.99 and you have a wide selection to choose from. Service is prompt, attentive and courteous. My lunch break is an hour but I am back in 40-45 minutes with time to spare. My favorite pick of the week is the Carne Asada with rice and a side salad.

The wait staff greets you with a smile and it gets better from there.
The Lunch specials are a great value. My favorite is the Pork Chops.
