Dine with the locals at this prototypical Tico soda in a retro 1950s-style American diner, complete with bright lights and Formica tables. The food is solid and the service speedy. Its extended hours make it a good choice for a late-night bite. The main branch is just across from the popular La Sabana Park and Museo de Arte Costarricense. Other branches are around the Central Valley, including ones in Santa Ana (Centro Comercial Vistana Oeste, across from MATRA; (tel) 2203-7175) and Alajuela (Centro Comercial Plaza Real Alajuela; (tel) 2441-6033).
