Great Papusas.

After a gap of 17 years we returned to Lake Atitlan & Panajachel. We sought out a papusas restaurant & found Cheros Bar which was closed on our first attempt on a Monday but we're happy we tried again on Tuesday.

It would be easy to walk past this place without realizing what you are missing. We did more than once. I am so glad that we took the time to stop in and order a Papusa, because we immediately ordered several more after tasting how fantastic they are. The prices are negligible (~20Q), and there are several flavors to choose... More

Order the tipico...chorizo, queso and ajo. My son invented it but Ricardo will know what you want. Add lots of sauce and look for the Packers helmet om the fridge.

This place was great - we were about to get drinks in the tiki sports bar across the street and just couldn't handle the noise and vibe so we dodged traffic to get over to Cheros.

There are other cheaper places to get pupusas in town but none of them offer this many options for both food and drinks. Cheros is a good place to eat cheap with options.

typical pupuseria from Salvador in the heart of Panajachel. the owner is a nice person, the atmosphere very warm (which is great in winter months!), pupusas are cheap (10quetzales each) and delicious.. so you can understand why we had dinner there 3 times while in Panajachel!

Our group had several selections; all good (menu in Spanish). Small bar with a good variety of drinks; ice is safe to have here. Good service.

This place came recommended by a local tourguide. You can get gigantic pupusas here for Q10!! And they were delicious. Best deal in Pana.
