New breakfast menu at the shack, Nemo dog...its really delicious! Very filling hearty breakfast of hotdog with egg and bacon, served with the Shack fries and guacamole.

Having read the reviews we were very disappointed. The place is very easy to get to. Food was alright, descent prices. My wife and I had a chicken nachos and casado with fish. Didn't have a descent bathroom, very very dirty! I wish we would have had a better experience.

Great food at reasonable prices. I love that there is a blend of local food and American style food. English speaking staff, and danielle is quirky and sweet making the it a genuine and fun place to hang out

Visited The Shack last week - we were lost and hungry and just stopped in, not knowing what to expect. Had the best fish all week - great Dorado. Really tasty food, cold beer, nice setting. The three of us enjoyed our lunches and enjoyed meeting Harry, the owner. And then he put us on the right road (actually the same road, just making the right turns!) Thanks Harry.

The food is delicious. The Shack was, by far, my favourite place to go for breakfast in Potrero. There were even times that we would go for breakfast and end up staying the entire day until they closed just because of the awesome atmosphere. The owner and staff are amazing. I would highly recommend visiting.
