We took a short bus ride from our hotel to this restaurant for a quick bite and to walk around in the Parque la Sabana across the street. The food was good, served quickly and the portion sizes were quite large. My family had casados with chicken and I had the Gordo sandwich. We didn't save much room for dessert, so we shared an ice cream trio - also yummy! The staff was very kind and accommodating. The place is not fancy, but that's part of it's charm! You can tell the locals enjoy it, too, which is always a good sign.

Fast service, good WiFi. Fast food quality food. On the corner of a busy street so sitting outside can be rather noisy and inside is crowded and hot.

We were looking for somewhere to eat after landing at the airport. We took a wrong turn and ended up in a small shopping center and found Soda Tapia. My husband and I each had a sandwich (El Gordo and Sandwich Tapia). I have to say they were the best sandwiches we have ever eaten! They were both humongous, enough for lunch and the next day too. What a great way to start a vacation! Their ice cream looked good too.

Refried black beans spread on a toasted loaf of bread filled with steak, cheese and veggies...yummy! Great local hangout.
