This is just a great place for a burger or wings. Service is friendly and efficient. I had a basic cheeseburger and it was outstanding. Their fries are excellent. My son had a grilled cheese burger that he found awesome. This is a fun place...More

This place blew us away! Do not judge the look from outside. Very clean inside & absolute best wings! Fish & chips too! Apparently burgs delish also. Not expensive!

Lunch with burger, fries and a shake was really tasty. Nice quite atmosphere if you’re ok with a big dog cleaning up anything you drop. Chocolate peanut butter milkshake with bacon was actually good. Price has gone up from last year, not cheap

Hands down one of the better burgers I've had, not just in Costa Rica, not to mention some of the sweetest, thickest shakes around. Really cool atmosphere and delicious food, this place is a nice change from all the incredible fruit and seafood the area...More

Beachside, American owned, great burgers, fries....super onion rings! Dog friendly. It really is a shack, but as in just about every other restaurant in Tamarindo, the fans cool you off.

Very good quality burgers, a great variety of beers, an excellent atmosphere and the friendliest staff ever. They could squeeze a few more tables in, so you may have to wait depending on the time of day, we were fortunate enough not to have to.

Yes we do. We can make any of our burgers or chicken sandwiches "protein style", any of our Tacos can be made into a salad, and our French fries are fried in a separate fryer so that people with gluten sensitivity can enjoy... More
