“Awsome”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

After full day of exploring wanted small bite wrong spot big portions. The staff were great friendly and quick. Pulled pork was really flavourful. Brisket melt in your mouth. Would recommend totally.

“BBQ Beef brisket -- in Costa Rica?”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Pleasant surprise to find this place serving authentic Texas BBQ in downtown Playa del Coco. Even the man behind the counter sounds like a genuine Texan!

We find that beef in Costa Rica is generally tough and sinewy, definitely not BBQ friendly. This gentleman must have his own beef supplier, because his brisket is succulent and tasty, served on crusty ciabatta rolls (sadly no caraway rye bread here!) with just a touch of BBQ sauce. Delicious.

“Nice change from Tico food!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We stayed at Playa Panama and drove to Playas del Coco for dinner. A Taste of Texas caught our eye since we'd been eating lots of traditional Tico food and were ready for a change. It was a good choice. Prices were fairly reasonable, the food was delicious, and the location was right on the main strip. Afterward we walked off our dinner and headed down to the beach to see the pelicans and do a little shopping.

“great food, good service”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I'm a frequent client of the Taste of Texas. My favorites are the buffalo wings, hamburgers and tacos. From time-to-time I treat myself to the ribs. Food is always fresh, tasty. Definitely he best burger in town.
