“Ideal for a quick and cheap meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food is good, but very simple. The price you'll pay is related to the amount of meat, fish or chicken you want. The other stuff, like rice, beans, salad, and what else they have there can be ordered in any amount. It's a cheap and fast meal. They also have breakfast, but it gets really crowded.

“Great authentic food - cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Great authentic food. Served cafeteria style where you point to what your want. You wait in line, get served and sit to eat. Great for lunch - but expect to wait in line - don't worry moves fast. This soda is down the side street where the restaurant with the big lobster is on the corner.

“Good Food at excellent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Good food at excellent price. Dislike waiting on line because too many people eat there. Open terrace with buffet style service. Many options to choose from.

“Eat where the locals eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Freshest food cooked typical Costa Rican style at a fair price! Buffet style and you pick what you want. Salads are fresh and the price is right! Must eat here at least once but bet you'll be back for more.
