Went on a mission to find a really good burger in Jaco and found this place. We made a good choice. Not much to look at but the food was good and cooked the way we liked it. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality...More

Consistently good food and service! Every time I go there, the food is on point and the service rocks. Morning, Noon and Night, someone who cares is working. I will go back soon!

Oh Jesus Christ the burger I ate was so damn good. The fries are delicious as well, not fatty and crispy. Totally recommend specially if you were drunk at the Beach and now you need something heavy to settle down.

...there is no such thing as a very good or exceptional burger in Jaco...don't bother searching. Problem: beef. However, Papas is your better choice for the area for a burger/fries at reasonable prices....definately worth checking out if in Jaco Beach.
