Family-owned place serving cheap, tasty, plentiful Costa Rican fare.
Located just up the road from Damen, North, and Milwaukee, this Costa Rican restaurant provides a refreshing alternative to that intersection's traffic nightmares and high prices. Tiny and always crowded, it serves food thats cheap, tasty, and plentiful. Standouts are the burritos (big enough to feed two) with optional mushrooms and hot peppers, and interesting nonalcoholic drinks like the tart, refreshing tamarind shake. Night owls be forewarned--Irazu closes at 9 PM. Cash only.
