Enjoyed having a hockey game on one screen, football on another and basketball on a third. But being from Calgary one of the BBQ capitals of the world the food was very average. I had the pulled pork combo, a couple drinks and my wife had the fish tacos with two drinks. Total was $60 cdn. Come for the atmosphere... More

Great local bar with really good pulled pork bbq. Reasonably priced. The owner is from North Carolina and is really friendly. We were able to watch the Packers game and had a great time. The mojitos are wonderful!

My family was staying in a condo down the street from LongBoards BBQ and decided to check it out due to the cool use of surfboard decor. I am a huge fan of the typical Costa Rican breakfast consisting of Gallo Pinto, but the two breakfasts I had my last two days in Tamarindo, blew my socks off. First their... More

We ate here twice during our 10 day stay in Tamarindo and both times we found our meals tasty and reasonably priced. My son loved the chicken tacos and we enjoyed the wings, sweet potato fries and pulled pork brisket. Their alcoholic drinks were good too as they had just the right amount of alcohol. I had a Pure Vida... More

Ordered the large order of BBQ ribs. There was enough to share although did so reluctantly. The sweet potato fries were not great. Partner ordered Tama fish tacos. Didn't really like the smoked fish. The American fish tacos likely better.

Very cool place. The owner is awesome- so friendly and so chill. The food was good. We went late at night though so they were sold out of a few things. Mainly American type bar food. Good to watch games and have a few drinks.

We stopped by on taco Tuesday, had some good tacos and beer. Nice crowd, not fancy, pretty much a mini sports bar. Close to main street. Nice people watching. Worth a visit if you're looking for a cheap bite to eat.

Casual dinning with a surf motif or character, Jeff the owner is attentive and ensures your experience is a good one. Food qua It's is high and priced fairly. Beer is cold music is at reasonable levels and is recognizable to North Americans...

We stopped by for happy hour. Cold beer, good margaritas, and tasty chips and guacamole at a reasonable price. Friendly service.
