“Great spot to catch a bite to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Staying in Jaco for the week and needed a good meal after ATVing. Papas and burgers was a great option. I had the Tica burger that came with black beans and avocado. Free refills on soft drinks and coffee. A much better option than the high prices alternatives on the main strip.

“BEST BURGERS & SMOOTHIES IN JACO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

A great little place with mostly outdoor seating maybe 200 yards from the beach. Lots of cool people watching (if you like bikinis) to be had. The smoothies are the best in town, the burgers are up there in the top two, & the fries are superb. I also have had the grilled chicken wrap with guacamole, etc, & it is really good. When you need that hit of non Costarican food (which is very boring in my opinion), this hits the spot at a great price. The other good burger in town is twice the price.

“Hands down - best food experience for a chill foodie in search of a chill groove. Papas (fries) of amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Best food & smoothies in Jaco! Best prices and best hospitality. Many other places will charge you as though they are some type of high end gourmet establishment... Not here - their food is gourmet, prices are fair, vibe is super chill...

“Favorite place to eat and hang in Jaco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have lived in Jaco for 6 months now, and P&B is by far the place I've dined at the most. I often head there to grab a bite and a couple beers before heading out in Centro (not to mention returning the next morning for a "Hangover Elixer" smoothie and some breakfast.

Their prices are much better than Los Amigos' (the only other burger that comes close to P&B's).
Not only can you get great burgers and veggie burgers (my favorite is actually the veggie burger w/ bacon :D ), but the traditional Tico style dishes are excellent.

Go to P&B or Roxy will hunt you down and bring you there anyway!
