The Longhorn Bar and Grill was a big hit with a group of young North American tourists who were craving hamburgers after a month’s stay at La Fortuna recently. Cleverly searching the Internet, they found the Longhorn and drove all the way around the lake almost to Tilarán – to Cinco Esquinas, actually – to find the Longhorn. As one of them tells it in her blog entry entitled “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at domestipho bia.net (obviously a person who’d prefer not to prepare full-course meals in her own kitchen), the bunch spent a whole afternoon at the Longhorn assuaging their hamburger hunger, drinking beer, and watching football – just like home. In the blog, she refers to the Longhorn as 5 Corners Grill, but that’s the old name. The blogger provides several photos, including not only a Longhorn cheeseburger but less tasty items such as owners Jason and Cindy’s “pet” scorpion. 

The Longhorn is open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It’s a mecca for football fans on weekends when all the college and professional football programming can be enjoyed.
