“MMMMMM mmm! Thats some good chicken!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

I have been around meet and BBQ my whole life, cooking for large groups of people with my dad since a very young age.

THIS CHICKEN IS OF THE CHARTS. Super good. If you are hungry, get the half chicken with beans and the Jalepeno Sauce and you will go nuts. Soo freakin good. Billy (the cook for the five start Flor Blanca Resort up the road) opened this place up with his Wife and his Brother in Law and you can tell, its got that five star influence. So freaking good. If they opened one of these in the states it would have a license to print money. aaaaaahhhhh I miss it already.

Reviewed July 17, 2012

Great rotisserie chicken and sides. We visted Chicken Joe's twice in a week. Wish we could have their recipes!

“Amazing chicken!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We had the family meal here. 14500 colones ($29) for a whole chicken, 2 sides, 2 sauces, and a 1 litre drink. Not cheap, but not expensive either. More importantly, it might be the best chicken I've ever had. Believe the hype... This place is terrific!

“Salads are good, too!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

It's no surprise everyone comments on the fish tacos - they really are great. The side salad I had with the tacos was really nice, too. Fresh flavors - I think there was basil in the dressing - I wish I had asked. Very relaxed atmosphere - awesome place for food when you first arrive to Santa Teresa. Very good!

“A must stop”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Fish Taco's are to die for. One of those items you will never duplicate at home so don't even try. Just make sure you go several times if your visiting
