Probably the best pupusas I've had and for $1.50 each. The tamales are nothing to write home about and the maduros are mediocre. The tacos (one beef and one chorizo) are good. Overall, you can't beat the price.

To me, there is almost nothing better than the steak sandwich at El Charrito! I could eat one every day of my life. Pupusas and carne asada plates are excellent choices as well. Strayed one time when I ordered the chicharones with yuca fries, and it was not so good. So if you stick to the steak dishes, you'll love... More

I love coming by to visit Jose and the family. (No, not mine, his!) But anyway, their no-nonsense demeanor always cracks a smile when i walk in & he knows what I want... taco (or if I'm really hungry, a burrito) de lengua, herb papusa, with a strawberry-banana Jumex. Basic, quick, awesome food.

I have traveled for tacos, and I keep coming back to TECC for the best there is in this area. Try the lengua for flavor that is out of this world! The cabrito is delicious as well, but if you want a little smokey flavor, try the barbacoa. The chorizo is a bit of a disappointment for me, but my... More
