“Best Hamburger in Puerta Jimenez”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

In general hamburgers in Costa Rica are disappointing. Not this one; it really is an American style burger and the price ($6), which included good fries, is well worth the price. We watched the Superbowl here and started the evening with chips and salsa which we also recommend. New owner is doing a great job.
She's actually changed the name but locals still call it Juanita's

I enjoyed the food, and cold beer. I've been there a few times and every time the staff is friendly and fun.

“Wouldn't Write Home About It...”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Wouldn't come here again. The wait staff was inattentive and more focused on what was going on in the bar are, and there was no ventilation in the kitchen so grease smoke was pouring out into the seating area. The cook was constantly leaving the kitchen on a bike to go fetch more food as it was being ordered, and they had only a small percentage of items on the menu available... Food took forever to come and was just average, nothing to write home about!
