We just got back from dinner at El Wagon. Our party was 2 adults and kids (14, 13, 12 & 10).

Everything was wonderful. My son also got the breaded chicken BBQ... More

We stopped for lunch, attracted to the wood fired pizza oven. The pizza was good. No white pizza though, which is what we were looking for. We also had a veggie wrap, which was excellent. Fries and onion rings also excellent. But the margarita was the tartest I've ever had. There was a white faced monkey hanging out, which was... More

This would be a great place to go as a couple or with kids. It isn't a cheap pizza and hot dog joint though. That being said, they have nice drinks, wine, and the pizza is pretty good. It is the rustic 12" thin type, not pizza hut or dominos. Unsure of a view as it was night time when... More

We needed a pizza fix after a lot of traditional Costa Rican fare. The pizza was very good, fire oven baked with crispy crust. Great service and atmosphere. Yes recommended.

We had pizza and vegetable nacho, both were excellent. Pizza was baked in the wood oven right in front of our eyes, literary. Ambiance was good, and service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable, on par with what we would pay in the States.
