It's got a home type atmosphere with matching home spun food. Descent service and menu options. Nice location I'm the heart of South Hadley.

After reading reviews I decided to try this place. While I love supporting local restaurants I won't be back here soon. The service was so-so, the food even more so. It was edible but not delectable. My companion likes heat but her dish was so spicy she left most of it on her plate, something she's never done before. I... More

I love El Guanaco, I go here with my friends a lot. The food is really cheap and REALLY GOOD and you get a lot of food for the price. Burritos here are huge and come with lots of rice and beans, and the guac is really fresh too. I got huevos rancheros which was awesome, and my girlfriend's chicken... More

This is one of my favorite places for El Salvadorian food in the area. The mole is fantastic and the enchiladas are great. There are weekly burrito specials, so it is incredibly affordable. I recommend getting your meal to go, because the restaurant service is too slow when dining with children!

Getting ready to leave no sign of food. Sorry cant comment on the food because i apparently am not getting any. The place is a dirty dump. The... More

Okay, it's a low budget, tiny hole in the wall that is obviously operated by a small family of nice folks on a shoestring budget. But if you can look beyond that, the food is authentic Mexican/Salvadoran, plentiful and very good. So don't go there on a special date. But do go there for take-out or if you're okay with... More

Don't be fooled by the appearance of this tiny gem! Great Mexican/Salvadoran dishes at very reasonable prices. Not very spacious, but take out a great option. Fried yucca is not available at many local places and is one of my favorites. Try it, you'll love it!

A very small place ( maybe seats 18 people) that you would not even notice if you drove by, but the food is excellent. A blend of Mexican/Salvadorian recipes, very authentic, love the pork Burrito and the enchiladas. Also be sure to check out their specials. Prices are very reasonable and I would highly recommend trying this place out. My... More
