This was a really good place to eat but it never lasted through the low season last year, it has been replaced by the Ventana el Rancho to which has local food at good prices and excellent pizza.

I'm always thrilled to try new places in town and they come and go like "pop ups". The Smokehouse staff is experienced but our party's order got "lost" and so did friends' dinner a different night. $16.00 steak was thin, flat, small and overcooked.

Real pulled port BBQ right here in Hermosa. And for all you Canadians, Papa Hogg is the epicenter for real authentic Poutine. My only complaint... he's closed 6 months out of the year and that SUCKS for us full time residents!

We ate there and had a good time! Food was comforting, specially on a rainy day (and believe me, it was pouring!!!) Good prices, good food and friendly people. What else can you ask for? Try it!

Well this I never expected: Munching on delicious pulled pork on a custom-made onion bun while my wife enjoyed authentic poutine.... in the middle of Costa Rica. This diversion from authentic fare in CR was an exception, but very good. The couple are ex pats...More
