Amazing spot, great concept - you order the type of tacos you want (lots of other options too) at the window, pay for your order there and then they bring them to your table. Then, you dress your tacos as you please at the salad bar (which also has a number of salads for your side dishes - included with... More

Okay, after discovering this place and trying it, I ate there every day, even if it were just for a quick snack. Spectacular food, and the people working were super nice and friendly.

I visited here while staying at a condo in Jaco and wow the food was delicious! I had the mahi taco and it tasted fantastic, like it had been caught that morning! I also tried the ceviche here (for the first time ever, based on a recommendation of another diner) and it was amazing as well, very fresh. Would recommend... More

I have been going to Tacobar for years. The quality is great and the food is delicious. Service can be dicey depending on when you go. The last time I was there, we waited for 25', but this is not the norm- that is the reason behind the very good versus excellent

Cute environment off the main road. Walk up with your taco or entrée and then it has a small salad bar. We ate for the equivalent of eight dollars each.

We absolutely love our first meal in Jaco at the Tacobar. Everything is tasty. This is a popular place so expect a bit slower service. Recommend!

I had a tuna steak and salad bar (7100 colones) and it was so right on time. After a week of beans and rice the green things were so welcome. It's not extensive but very functional. Beets, lettuce and cold cooked veggies were there when I went through.

Got a tuna taco and my girl got the veggie. Excellent all around. The salad bar makes this place. Unlimited salads with lunch or dinner. Lots of options and everything was fresh and pretty delicious. But forget the food for a moment. You can eat your taco while sitting on a swing!! Yup, you heard me, a swing. The bar... More
