8 of us had 1 hour for lunch. The waiters are attentive and fast. The menu hasn't changed and serves good food. Closest to the real tacos al pastor.

Drink order (sodas and plenty of fruit juices like pineapple, strawberry) was served fast and always they receive you with a large plate of tortilla chips, Pico de gallo and sour cream sauce.

We ordered que me vez, a good portion of melted cheese steak and pastor with three tortillas. The burrito (chicken, steak, pastor or mix) was a big size, tasty . Another order where the chalupas, thick corn tortilla with plenty of beans, meat, lettuce and sour cream.

This is a great place to have a Mexican meal at a reasonable price with great service.

Only problem is lack of ventilation so you walk out of the restaurant smelling of food.

I've been alone, with friends, for business or on a date for dinner or lunch.
Great all purpose restaurant, true to Mexican cuisine. The best Sopa Azteca I've had in Costa Rica and can't go wrong with their tacos, though their choices are limited to pastor and regular beef and pork without all the variety Mexican tacos have. Yet it is always a good dine, and the Crepa de Cajeta features actual imported Cajeta from Mexico, hard to find.

You want something like a taco al pastor and where are you going to go? Tacontento? I think not. This place. Pretty quick to serve, reasonable prices, clean and tasty food. Nothing to get overly excited about but hits the spot when you want some meat or beans in a corn tortilla. Acoustically challenged tile and metal interior and traditional uncomfortable chairs. But you won't be here long, it's not for lingering over your courses as the waiter plies you with fine wine. Nope. In and out. Great for a quick snack or lunch when you are feeling Mexican-ish.

My date and I came here for lunch. The service was quick and friendly. The food was average at best and the price was too high considering the food came with no salad or any sides. We did get a small complimentary tortillas plate, but that was it.

This is an excellent Mexican restaurant. The food was very, very good; and the prices were quite reasonable. The menu was in spanish, but my waiter was bilingual.
