We love Mexican food and El Mexsal never disappoints us! Between the tostada, tacos, burritos, and pupusas you can't go wrong! The free chips and salsa they give you when you dine in are awesome as well. We love eating here.

Loved it! This place is new for us and has a unique taste that was different than other Mexican style restaurants. Loved the pupusas. I like saucey and cheese and that definitely defines their dishes. Excited to add this place to the lunch rotation.

This place has nice, fresh, inexpensive Pupusas. Not much on ambiance, but definitely authentic Latin American fast food/cafeteria feel.

We came for the pupusas! They were freshly made, and great. Service was leisurely, but that wasn't unexpected for how busy it was.

Like everyone else, it's all about the pupusas. Everything else on the menu you can find at a Mexican joint. But the pupusas. Heaven will taste like a freshly cooked pupusa from El Mexsal. They have a little crunchiness on the outside with the tasty...More
