This may be the worst eating establishment in Jaco. It is dirty, crowded and the service nearly non-existent. One server gave me no more recognition than to look up from her cell phone as she walked by. There are many places to eat in Jaco. Avoid this one.

Had the Timmay and the Hawaiian Pizzas and both exceeded expectations, great flavor, generous toppings on a crispy thin crust.

It was both smoky and tender straight off the cooker. Great... More

Pizza was so good we went back for the prime rib. I live in Wisconsin and we know our beef. Kevin was outstanding. Don't forget to get a free shot.

The garlic knots are the best I've ever had, and I try them everywhere. The pizza we ordered was the veggies and it was deelish. The owner Kevin was so kind and made us feel right at home. Warren was awesome as well.I would recommend this for everyone.

The pizza was great. I would recommend this place. They have several different types of pizza on the menu but stuck to a simple meat pizza which was great.

My husband and I are here in Jaco for a little over a week and found this awesome place! The pizza here is great, with a fun and friendly environment. On our first time here they had run out of their wings right before our order, and to apologize they gave us each a house shot (warning: house shots and... More

We stopped in late one night to fill our bellies before bed. Very impressed with the owners. They talked to us and seemed interested in what we had to say. We also found out that they would smoke the tuna that we caught and the price was very fair. The pizza was good. Service was good. We even got the... More

A partnership of Two young entrepreneurs - Kevin from Minnesota and Joe from Wisconsin bring to Jaco, Costa Rica the best calzone we've ever had. A complimentary shot laced with hot sauce helped to cleanse the palate and prepare us for the garlic cheese bread where they import the mozzarella and this sets the bar high for the incoming feast....
