Geared toward tourist, which is a good thing. Friendly, loved the brisket and smoked chicken sandwich and my fries were divine. My margarita was sweet but lacked alcohol. Don't get the mango smoothies, not authentic, which the waitress warned us so I appreciated that. Great T.V's set up all around. Only thing was a bit too much bread on my... More

We had dinner here, mainly due to there special. The food was ok. The sandwich was ok and the order came fries and a beer. They only served only one type of beer no exceptions. Overall I would rather see them put a little more effort into the quality of the sandwich. Service was just ok but not exceptional. If... More

For Tamarindo a reasonably priced bar with very friendly staff and occasional music in the evenings. A happy hour from 4-7 each day was popular and they did a great job on our days catch. Thankyou

Took them on their daily deal for a smoked meat sandwich and beer with fries. Staff was great food was great. Great atmosphere and service was quick. Would of been 5 stars but the meat was on the light side when thinking of a smoked meat sandwich.

We went on an excursion and were famished when we got back. Decided to try Longboards and glad we did. We got the chips, salsa and guacamole for an app and between the five of us, got the pulled pork, ribs, burger and smoked chicken. It was all good. Very filling and perfect after our busy day. They do accept... More

Went here pretty much every day. They make the best fresh-cut french fries and tasty burgers. Owner very friendly and helpful. Nice clean place with good decorating. After the first day, we never had to order - owner knew what we wanted and delivered quickly. Definitely recommend to go there!

We enjoyed a delicious meal with 15 at Longboards and the food was wonderful. The ribs were smoked for 12-14 hours - so tender the bones pulled out completely clean. The nachos with mounds of brisket brought a delicious smoked flavour to this restaurant staple dish. The burgers were not awesome - if you want North American-style burger flavour, head... More
