I went here with some colleagues from my office. I got the ribs, which were definitely good, lots of flavor and very tender. There was a DJ at the time, and I think the music was probably a bit too loud, but we were there on the early side and maybe as the crowd filled in it would absorb some of the volume. Overall, a nice solid choice if you want local CR food.

We had visited this place a few years ago, and had been disappointed, but we were hungry and this was the only place open at the time, so we decided to try it again. And were disappointed again. It had changed management, and the new management was trying, but not succeeding. It holds itself out as a barbecue place, but most of the menu was other. It was an open air setting, but the smell of old cooking oil was what was most noticeable. The food was mediocre, and the setting was somewhere between rustic and shabby.

This place is an excellent choice for family and business occasions. Order the "Mixto", the chicharrones and ribs are really good.

Just went last week, first time in 10 years. I was so disappointed. The ribs should have been spectacular but instead were tough and certainly didn't fall off the bone. For the price I would rather go anywhere else.
