I've come here several times for lunch and every time I've had amazing and authentic food and fantastic service. It is the best pupuseria in the D.C. area. I've tried a bunch of other places in VA and D.C. and it's no comparison. Amazingly delicious!!!

There is never any parking available but aside from that, this place has some of the best Pupusas in the area. You will wait forever to get your food because it is extremely busy but its worth it.

Always busy but always tasty, this place is a local favorite. They have many other great dishes to try, but I go for the pupusas, which are really very good. Be patient for a table and for a parking place and you will enjoy yourself.
