Grew up in S. CAL. Very much enjoy Real Chicano food. El Chicano on the main calle of Jaco, CR is as good as it gets. Food, service, cleanliness, and great/fair prices. ***** A must DO, while in Jaco beach , Costa Rica.
Stopped in for lunch and had the most fantastic meal. My shrimp taco was huge and so flavorful and fresh. Husband had the carnitas tacos and loved them as well. Cooled off with a pineapple smoothie. Would highly recommend.
We absolutely loved el Chicano. From the home made tortillas and authentic Mexican food to the cocktails it was awesome every time. We went multiple times the week we were in Jaco and loved it each time. The service was fast and friendly and the...food was delicious. Highly recommend!!More
So how good can Mexican food be? I was hopeful but skeptical based on reviews. The margaritas are delish, the guacamole is on point, chips are fresh and the flank steak tacos are amazing. Don’t know why it’s all so good, but it’s that good!...My husband had the shrimp taco and raved about it!! Go here and feel confident in everything!! YummmMore
This place is great! Everything about it is so appealing. The ambiance is fun and festive, very exciting upon entering. The staff speaks English, so that's another comforting plus. Its air conditioned, another comforting plus. And the attributes do not stop there! The beer is...ICE COLD the menu is both fortified, but not so much that you cant decide, and the food is AMAZING!!! I've gone BACK three times JUST for beer and nachos!! Each time I've gone, the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. This visit today was with my husband and the owner, Mike, was there. WOW what a great guy! He spent a considerable amount of time connecting with us as customers and then helping us with local information as new friends. We will definitely be returning!! Everything about this place is really spot on! Keep up the great work, Mike and staff. You are definitely doing something right!!More
El Chicano is right on the Main Strip in Jaco Beach. Food is Amazing, I recommend the Large Platter of Street Tacos. Margaritas are a Must try as well. Karol and Francella was perfect with the service. We all went here about everyday for a...drink, lunch or Dinner, hard to stay away!!!More
My husband and I went there for a chill dinner and were blown away. The food is incredible. The best Mexican food we had the entire trip to Costa Rica. Service is great, they are so nice and attentive. The staff ensure you’re having a...fun time. And they have AC! Definitely go here if you’re in Jaco!More
