Fodor's Expert Review Soda Tapia

$ West of Downtown Costa Rican

One of San José's most popular restaurants fronts the east side of La Sabana Park. Don't expect anything fancy, but food here is cheap and filling. The ubiquitous gallo pinto for breakfast and casados (meat, fish, or poultry, accompanied by rice, cabbage salad, and dessert) for lunch are on the menu. The dinner menu has a variety of sandwiches and burgers. You can dine outdoors, but you'll have to contend with the traffic noise and the sight of the guard flagging cars in and out of the tiny parking lot. The place stays open until 2 am on weekdays and around the clock on weekends.
