Best burger in Costa Rica (of all the burgers I have tried... and we’ve lived here 18 years). Awesome fries. My husband and son had the peanut butter bacon burger, my mother and daughter had bacon avocado cheeseburger, and I had the mushroom and caramelizada...onion burger... it was amazeballs. If you get the bacon cheese fries, know that it comes with only real cheese (not a sauce) and a ton of bacon... and it’s huge.More
We had just arrived in Tamarindo and our room wasn't ready and it was lunchtime, so we looked up spots for lunch for our family with two teens and found good reviews for Surf Shack. It didn't look like much from the outside at first...- think hangar style, metallic walls and very, very casual - with old licence plates from all over the world on the walls and broken or old surf boards, but it was perfect.
It was quite busy as a large group of a few families had just arrived before. The main waiter seemed overwhelmed a bit (there was one other girl helping), but luckily the cutout to the kitchen where the cook (owner?) was working (alone) called out to say we could be waiting as long as 40 minutes for our food because of the large group who arrived. But then he generously and kindly said that if we could give our order right away then he'd prepare our food first. Needless to say, we did just that and the burgers, fries and shakes were delicious...hand cut fries, big milkshake served in the metal mixing cup, juicy burgers with interesting topping choices.More
Return visit did NOT disappoint...fantastic burgers, wonderful milkshakes...lovely mom and pop operation. Simple, inexpensive location just off the beach in THE perfect beach town! Will return as soon as we can!!
What an amazing place!! From the lovely chilled out atmosphere overlooking the sea, to the great enthusiastic staff, the place really is amazing. The food is a whole other story. We have been there I believe 5 times now in around a week and a...half and just can’t get enough of it. The food is so so yummy and so reasonably priced too. On average, 2 meals with 2 beers each comes to around $40 which is so good for Tamarindo. We have tried the bacon and cheese burger which was awesome, the chicken tacos that I absolutely recommend (best I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot of tacos), the cheese sandwich burger - no words for that one, it was delicious. I also tried the Tamarindo hot dog, that was still very good but I prefer the other meals. I believe the owner is the chef and the food is really made with a lot of care. You cannot miss out on the surf shack if you’re in Tamarindo!!!More
Tucked away just back from the beach is this good lunch stop. Great burgers 🍔 and fries at good prices. Probably won’t visit again as so many places to eat in Tamarindo but this is I no way a reflection on Surf Shack and happy...to recommend to burger 🍔 lovers.More
We happened into this restaurant the night before we were scheduled to leave. Lucky for everywhere else we did because we may not have gone anywhere else. We both got a bacon/cheese burger and fries. The burger was absolutely delicious! We’re not talking fancy food,...just excellent tasting food! We asked for a glass of water and received a huge plastic cup of water with ice which is fantastic in the CR heat.
Next time we get to Tamarindo this will be our first dinner!More
I understand you maybe visiting a different country but if you want a taste of America at a good price with decent taste look no further. We stopped by twice just to have a beer and some wings and burgers at this super relaxed establishment....It is not to far from the beach with great service and excellent food. Highly recommend!More
