“Good food, huge portions.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Looked like a fun place to be. A good meeting place. Huge portions, you won't go away hunger. Friendly owner and staff. I will return if I'm in Jaco again.

“Good Spot in Jaco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is a good place to grab a bite in Jaco. Reasonable prices and American-friendly menu. Food is good and the ambience is casual.

Jaco itself is a hole, but Jaco Taco will at leats get you some good eats.

“Good food, freindly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Ate here twice while in Jaco. Good open-air atmosphere with large bar and several flat screens throughout the place for watching the game. I had mexican style tacos w// corn tortilla, burgers and chicken wings. The food is very good, large portions and reasonable price. The restaurant is clean, it does not have the smell of old dirty grease that so many places have in Costa Rica. The chicken wings are great, very meaty, cooked perfect with a good spicy/tangy buffalo style sauce- Just the way a wing should be. Only problem was that there was no Blue Cheese dressing. You can't eat wings with ranch, it just isn't right! I would still go back to Jaco Taco anytime.
