“Great, fresh smoothies and yummy burger combinations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We've only been once, but had a great experience. My boyfriend can't stop talking about this place. The food was good and the service was friendly. The only negative was that the buns were way too big for the burgers. Other than that, it was totally yummy!

“Super burgers for a super price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

I love this place, they do the best smoothies and often have a really great lunch/dinner meal including a burger, fries and a smoothie. And in walking distance from the beach, who can complain? :)

“Quick, good, and well priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We decided to try this place based on the reviews. Sometimes you just need to step away from local food and have something from home. The hamburgers were excellent and my picky five year old ate almost all of her grilled cheese and fresh cut fries. The service was quick for Costa Rica and we will be back!

“Good Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Nice, thick burgers. Cooked to order. It is hard to find a good burger in Jaco, but Pappas And Burgers does it to the tee. Resonable prices for the size of the burgers too. They also have awesome dessert options.

“Not just another burger !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

JOHNNY CASH , gotta love the flavor and the style , no reconstituted potatoes here either ! Its all done so well here and the smoothies are good enough to hold their own against the competition here in Jaco ! This is arguably the best burger in CR and for sure in Jaco !
