My husband and I ate dinner here during our first night in Gettysburg. Definitely recommend sitting outside if it's nice out. The queso was amazing! Carlos was a great server who spent time talking with us about what to do during our stay. I would go back in a heartbeat.

As a local and a foodie, there is only one place where I know I will get a good meal in this tourist town - El Costeno. The best thing to order is the Popeye burrito (chicken, spinach, mushrooms and cheese) or the steak burrito. The outside seating is fabulous. If you drink alcohol, a meal here is most reasonably priced as you can bring your own beer, wine, or Margaritas.

Service was good and quick. Outdoor seating was pleasant. Food was just OK. We ordered the beef Chimachangas and the cheese enchiladas. Neither was great. And they were out of FLAN.

Recently sampled some of the best carnitas I have ever had. The homemade salsa and chicken dishes were wonderful. Outdoor seating made it even better.
