Always busy, Food is typical, not extra special but good, and fairly inexpensive. I had the casado - was a lot of food and a small price (about $5). Tasty and very filling!

We ate here twice while in Atenas. I dont know how they're smoking their pork but it is juicy and delicious. Try sampler platter (careful, its HUGE) also ceviche, chorizo, ribs. Wanted to go back to try more but ran out of time. Stop in for a couple beer amd bocas.

This restaurant is always hopping and gets especially busy if there's a soccer game on. But the prices are great, good selection of food and the food is not fancy but good. Small plates (bocas) are available which are great. Wait staff is friendly and very professional.

This restaurant is always packed with all the locals in Atenas. So if your looking for Tico food this place will not disappoint. We enjoy the wings and the chicken is excellent. Do not drive by and keep going because of the crowds and parking it's worth the stop
