Had a great afternoon meal at this place today. Great food and friendly staff. My wife's family is from El Salvador and she agreed that this food was authentic. If you want authentic food check this place out you won't be disappointed.

I was in the mood for Venezuelan or Salvadorian food, and found this place. Great pupusas, fried yucca and plantanos. If you are craving this comfort food, give this place a shot.

Let me start off by saying that this a a good restaurant. The staff was friendly and ernest. The food was plentiful and prepared well.

If you're looking for a change of pace from Mexican food, give the pupusas here a try. Nice selection of combinations where you can try multiple varieties. Good food at a great price. They also have a location near Thomas Road and 75th Avenue if you're on the west side of town. Very friendly service and great prices.

Great food. The bean papusa and tamales are great. The women who run the restaurant are very nice. They offer 20 tamales or papusas or a combination of both for about $35. The tamales are amazing. They are wrapped in banana leaves. The restaurant interior is average at best.

This restaurant is not fancy, but they have good food. This was my wife's and my first experience with food from El Salvador. We started with "Pupusas", which are the local favorite. These were fresh home-made corn tortillas stuffed with your choice of meat. The tortillas themselves are thicker and are different than Mexican. The Pupusas are served with a... More
