Very tasty and filling for $3. We ordered the omelette which consisted of eggs veggies and lot's of cheese in a toasted tortilla and it came with a side salad. I also ordered a ginger lemonade which is served like a slushy very good and just the right amount of ginger. 🖒

My wife and I ordered 3 different tacos apiece. I had the grilled mahi, the beef, and the shrimp. The beef was tough and fatty. The shrimp were plump and numerous. The grilled mahi was amazing! I'm going back for more mahi tacos today as a matter of fact.

Great place to eat and meet people. It's in the heart of Jaco. You get to design your own taco or choose from the 10's of different tacos off the menu. This place is a must when visiting Jaco. Has a menu for you vegan's also.

For someone that used to live in Mexico, this taco doesn't have anything to do with real taco. Nice all you can eat side dishes, but the tortilla got all because of the sauce
