Enjoyed this street restaurant. Pretty expensive for tacos though. But very popular and just like everything in CR resort towns the prices are inflated. Food good. Ok for lunch. Out of fish so no fish tacos boo hoo!

The food at this place was great. I had the shredded chicken tacos and my partner had the chicken nachos - both of which were very very tasty. It's primarily a street food place so it's more for eating and going - not much point hanging around there, so if you want more of a restaurant vibe this place is... More

We opted for this place for lunch and we could not be happier with the decision. The menu is a selection of tacos, burritos, salads and smaller bites, all at very affordable prices. Everything we tried was delicious. They only accept cash so make sure to have some colones or dollars with you!

I ate here for lunch and found the food to be delicious and well-priced. Some of the best tacos I've ever had and everything was fresh and delicious.

Fantastic veggie options! Loved the Baja Veggie burrito--better than homemade. Mistook how large the "large" burrito would be... eaters beware, they are HUGE. Had to share it with my husband who ordered tacos (normal size). Too good to put down. Tried the trio of salsas with chips as well, definitely worthwhile. Thinking about our next chance to venture to the... More

Stopped here at the recommendation of friends. Food was great. The salsa was fabulous. We got the tacos. Our kids got the nachos. Outdoor seating. Not for the OCD. Sense of adventure required.

Order at the window, eat in small area on the street. Fun atmosphere. We ordered 4-5 different kinds of tacos, all were really good. Our kids didn't love theirs (a type of cheese filled quesadilla of sorts) but we really enjoyed the tacos. We also ordered several different drinks (slushy smoothie) and they were really good. Almost the best part... More
