Sadly for travelers and for us in the area, Maverick's Restaurant has closed its doors. The best burgers in Costa Rica are no more. Tom, we will miss our impromptu parties and that great barbecue from the open flame grill. Travelers can check out Moya's in Nuevo Arenal - wonderful food and reasonable prices.

My friend and I ate here 5/22/12. As soon as we set down the skies open and we moved inside. It's tood bad as the patio dining area offers a wide vista. Each of us had sandwiches and onion rings which we could barely finish-huge portions. Very friendly service. Highly recommend.

Maverick's is the place to go when you crave some good "gringo food!" the cheeseburgers, french-fries and onion-rings are the best around, Try his BBQ ribs and his salads. Tom has his big grill right out front so you can see the best of meats he uses being cooked right in front of you. The outdoor dining is a pleasant experience. Tom uses the best ingredients in all of his dishes including homemade dressings and BBQ sauce. Worth stopping into for a good meal and a place the locals gather on a regular bases.

This is a solid restaurant frequented by locals and travelers alike. For lunch, the burgers really are the best in the country and the Tri Tip Steak dinner is heaven (so says my husband). Check out the enormous onion rings or try the homemade guacamole (I love it and I don't even like guacamole). Ribs and BBQ chicken? To die for. But don't die - save room for dessert.

If you are in the Lake Arenal area, don't miss dining at Mavericks. The food is wonderful ---especially if you like food smoked outside on the grill. The service is very good and the staff is friendly. Tom, the owner, is a gracious host who always aims to please. Mavericks has an atmosphere like your favorite restaurant back home, only it is set in the lush rainforest of Costa Rica. It is definately well worth a visit.
