We stopped by amigos to watch the USA v Costa Rica match. The crowd was a mix of locals and tourists. Bar staff were helpful. Food and drinks were reasonably priced.

Watched the Super Bowl here with family and friends. Had a group of guys last week...played pool down stairs. Great place for pool. The dance floor up stairs was rocking as we left just before 11p and it was a Thursday night.

Service was a bit slow, went during a weekday. Super nachos and chalupas were both super delicious alongside an Imperial beer. Good prices, they accept all cards

The stuffed green plantain was delicious. It's probably big enough for 2 if you're not terribly hungry. Service was good. Also had the seafood taco, which was good.

We live in the area now and I'd generally stayed away from Bar Amigos as we had the impression it was rough around the edges and mainly a hard-core bar for backpackers, etc. Finally broke down a couple of months ago and have been back...More

This setting is perfect for a group of people. We had a lot of fun in this spot with about 8 or 9 of us. The service could have been better but that's expected with a group this size. The food is very good.

Came here on an off-night (so the place was pretty empty) for after dinner drinks but we loved the place regardless. Huge dance floor and a well-stocked bar.

Bar Amigos have so many TVs I would be surprised if they didn't! I am not into sports but Bar Amigos is a sports bar. Ask them nicely and they will do their best to get the channel of your choice. The key thing is to ask... More
