The slogan here is "American as apple pie," and there is indeed apple pie, as well as all-day breakfast and a selection of hearty burgers, triple-decker sandwiches, and meal-size salads at this popular roadside diner. Pancakes, waffles, and ice-cream sundaes will satisfy your sweet tooth. Hungrier eaters can chow down on hearty servings of barbecue ribs or steak. There are Tico touches, too, with local fish and shrimp with rice and tres leches cake, the classic
Tico dessert. The $5 lunch specials are an excellent value. Tables are spread through different rooms of the cheerfully updated wooden hacienda, all of them pleasant with lots of natural light. If you're in a hurry, everything is available "to go." An added attraction: the eatery is on the main highway, so you don't have to negotiate San Isidro de El General's sometimes confusing one-way streets. Just look for the big pink Bazooka's sign at the northern entrance to town.
