We were looking for something to eat and they had a great offer. Sandwich sides and drinks included . If you visit tamarindo this will be the best place to enjoy yourself, from breakfast till dinner. The service is good and the manager the best!

The burger is so good I had it 3 days in a row. Happy hour beers, friendly staff and live music make this place so special. The owner, Jeff, is a really friendly guy! Cheers!

The pulled pork is delicious and juicy. We got brisket too but some were dry. But some were tender and tasty. They also have great cocktails and service was impeccable. Also we love there shirts for sale-so soft.

We both ordered the platter with pulled pork, coleslaw and onion rings. I absolutely detest fish and the onion rings tasted like bass, the pulled pork was almost flavourless and the regular coleslaw was good - the tropical coleslaw was drowning in balsamic it made...More
