“Carolina BBQ in Costa Rica”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

American owners Stephanie and Brian from Colorodo make a great BBQ pulled pork sandwhich and the smoked fish tacos were fantastic. We live in North Carolina so imagine our surprise when we were presented with both Eastern Carolina style and Lexington style sauce. Seems that Stephanie's grandma is from the Raleigh area and couldn't see them having a BBQ place with out the right sauce. Stephanie was very nice and friendly and helped us figure out how to shave almost an hour off our trip back to San Jose. Great place and a good value. Cash only.

“Best place in Tamarindo”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

this was by far our favourite food place. The rest of town in pricey for what you get! This was the one place we wanted to eat at twice, but be careful. It is closed on wednesdays, like many place.

“BEST Smoked Wings!!!!!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Have to say....... they have the BEST smoked wings EVER! and the 1/2 pound burger was made to perfection!

you can see that the owner Brian takes pride in what he makes for you! Each dish is served with love! And those Onion Rings!!!!!!!!!!! you can't get enough of them!

When visiting Tamarindo, Visit Longboards BBQ....... you will leave Costa Rica having cravings for LONGBOARDS!!!!

“Simple eats!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Good food, good value, poor location and atmosphere. Tamarindo is such a rip off but this is definitely worth it. Not fancy but good food at a decent price comparatively. We had the pulled pork and chicken barbecue. Both were very good meals and came with coleslaw, beans and buns. We will return and try the ribs next time.
