The al pastor tacos are very good. Lots of meat for a good price. The salsa that comes with it is also tasty. The carnitas are not so great - kind of bland. Big pieces of meat but just not great flavor. The nachos are good with a fair amount of meat, lots of good cheese, sour cream and pico... More

The prices are greater than the quality of the food. This is more of a to go place but there are a few picnic tables. It took a surprisingly long time for our food to be ready.

Good spot to get to chat with people during a quick lunch. Can't go wrong with Mexican food. Service is prompt and nice.

Saw this place in our guide book, it was a good recommendation. My husband and I both had tacos, which were yummy and reasonably priced. We also ordered the nachos, which I didn't like. Outdoor dining setting in the middle of town, near some cool street art. They don't serve beer.

During our three day stay, we only had meals at this place. Nice staff with reasonable prices (~ 3500 colones for a burrito). Good vegetarian food!

The taco's were ok. The man at this restaurant or directly beside was not friendly to the local animals. We were patting a dog and he came out and shouted it away into moving traffic. Totally unnecessary.

Some traditional and non traditional options with great chips and pick de gallo and their homemade ranch-y sauce. We all really enjoyed this and tried just about every taco on the small menu. Reasonably priced & cash only.
