“Muy Tico!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This restaurant is conveniently located on the old highway about a mile east of Atenas, near the monument to the oxcart drivers. It is very popular with locals and tourists. It is easy to spend a good part of an evening there enjoying pork ribs and your favorite drink, and absorbing the atmosphere.

“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This location seems to be busy and many people stop to eat here so we decided to give it a try. We found the food mostly greasy deep fried and won't go back. However it must be enjoyed by others judging by the amount of cars there.

“Eat and watch Futbol at the same time.”

This place is a great gathering place for the Gringo crowd, and the servers are very attentive to your needs. NO SPANISH?? No problem, the waiters will steer you too a good meal at a fair price.
