The simply named Costa Rica Restaurant is located at 2500 West Lincoln Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92801.

We ate there on a Friday evening and were the only customers in the restaurant which was great because we had the opportunity to talk to the owner who is a very nice lady. My co-writer is knowledgable when it comes to Costa Rican food so we ordered Gallo Pinto which is a Costa Rican rice and black bean dish that is served with an egg on top. Also, we ordered Garlic Shrimp which came with a side of white rice and black beans. Both dishes were delicious, especially with the Salsa that the owner told us is commonly use as a condiment in Costa Rican Dishes. The salsa is not spicy at all and has a slight vinegar flavor but it is great over rice and beans. We also had plantains which were thick cut and served with a cream dipping sauce which tasted and resembled a thick sour cream. The plantains were sweet and tender and paired perfectly with the dipping sauce.
We had Imperial, a Costa Rican brand beer, with our dinner. The beer is light and has a similar taste to Coors. I would recommend that any person that enjoys beer try this one. It is very good.
Hint: Costa Rican food is very vegetarian friendly! The Gallo Pinto is a meatless dish and can be made without the egg so it is a great option for vegetarians.

There aren't many Costa Rican restaurants that I know about but I do know about this one and it is NOT good. The food is gross. The service is awful and the place is dirty.
