We went to Chero's each day we were in Panajachel for their delicious Pupusas...Yum. Already missing their delicious food. I just wished I had to opportunity to try more of their menu.

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.

The owners are Salvadoreans. They bring their ingredients from El Salvador so they are very authentic. I love the atmosphere, rustic and charming at the same time. They also have great drink prices!!

The place is small and cozy. The pupusas are made fresh to order and are so delicious! Not to mention very cheap (Q10 for one). Ordering two was perfect for me. Very nice atmosphere and great service. Highly recommend this place

After reading the reviews here I decided to try the famous pupusas. The place is simple, but nice, service is good and it's nice to watch the woman cook in front of you. The pupusas weren't that special to me, but good food and cheap. Might come back.

Chero's is one our favorite local restaurants. Right now the World Cup is on and we're having so much fun watching the games and eating the best papusas. Chero and his wife own the place and are always there making sure everything is great. the carrot slaw is so good! It's a must of you are in Pana. Small friendly... More

We loved Cheros! The food was excellent and the service was great! We're vegetarian and that wasn't an issue at all! Doors open at noon....but they don't really open at noon, so come a little later than that. The wait for them to open is well worth it.
