The margaritas are fantastic! I loved the buffalo chicken fingers, nice and spicy!!! My only complaint is that the salsa is marginal. It seems like the kind of salsa you get from a jar. Costa Rica has such amazing natural resources I don't know why...More

The food was very fresh and tasty. The staff especially the manager Steve were super friendly. On our first visit Steve noticed I was interested in watching the US Open that each time we came back he turned tennis on the TV nearest us.
