I love this place. Great food. Great prices you can go wrong with anything you order here. Get there early because the sell out of the best stuff. Only open till 3. 11 is the best time to be there. Recommended highly.

Simple, inexpensive and delicious. Why did I wait so long to find this place? Arroz con pollo (chicken and rice), about 6 types of salad (traditional, beet, pasta, cucumber, etc), fish, fried chicken, shrimp & rice....traditional Costa Rican fare. Delicious.
