“Great Food, Super Nice Owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

We actually ate here twice during our vacation in Santa Teresa. We went one night passing through town looking for something laid back. The food was great! Really tender chicken, great tacos, even better homemade sauces (get the chimmichurri!) It wasn't until we finished that we started talking to the owners, who were so friendly and helpful! We ended up fishing (and catching a lot) the next morning, so we took the fish over the next dinner--and they made us the BEST ceviche with our catch! It was awesome!

“SOLID CHICKEN DINNER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Doesn't need to much explaining,

Firstly ... Go there.

Secondly, eat the chicken. (As much of it as you can)

Then, hustle the guy so you can try as many of the different sauces as possible. It's hard to pick a fave but bbq pineapple and chipotle are awesome.

Lastly, have the yuca fries. I ordered french fries hen had to piss off the Mrs by eating half of her lunch.

Simple... But wicked... I love chicken!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

The first time I went there I had the fish tacos with plantain chips and it was absolutely delicious. The second, third, and fourth times I went there I had the chicken, also delicious. As an added bonus, they have wifi, which many restaurants in Santa Teresa don't.
