Tasty local food. Good value. I stumbled across this place then kept going back. Why would I bother cooking?

The staff were unfriendly and despite giving a straw for everyone else's drinks, I had to ask for one. The food took an hour to arrive at my table and they weren't even busy. The fajitas were meh, the chicken had hard chunks I couldn't break down and wasn't sure what they were.

The drink selection was so uninspired that I just ordered water that came in a glass (again, with no straw!)

I read many great reviews regarding this place but maybe they've been resting on their laurels and possibly slacking.

cheap, good food, cant go wrong with sabor tico. friendly staff, too. $20 for two meals and drinks. it's a little bit of a walk from the town, so we were a little bit antsy as we walked up at night, but worth the trek.

Lots of great food at this casual and very reasonably-priced restaurant. We loved the pork fajitas. Portions are big!
