Still a Winner!

This is one that I highly recommend! Been going here on and off for about five years. Affordable, clean, great service, and fantastic Salvadoran food. From breakfast to lunch specials, and continues to midnight dinner. Food items that are normal to Latin American culture. Seafood entrees are... read more

This is a Salvadorean restaurant. El Salvador is the smallest Latin American country. They are known for their dish called "pupusas". This is a corn patty filled with various foods. The mixed one (beans And Chicharron) is very good here. The beef soup is also very good. Mostly visited by Central Americans. If you want to try and want to... More

Now this place is yummy. It is always crowded and there are lots of people here. Their typical Central American food and drinks are absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this place if you are renting a car and not from this area. The food is absolutely delicious, the service is fine and the prices are really good.

Every time I eat here, I'm never disappointed. A taste of Central America in your own backyard is great. The food is tasty, service excellent, and the prices reasonable ... the best combination for a restaurant. My favorite is the Bistec de Pollo (chicken steak) w/grilled onions. My friends had the Tilapia with red sauce, and said it was wonderful.... More

I used to go there because the food was delicious and fresh. Few days ago I went to order my food to go and I got the surprise... the chicken from the kids menu was dry and burned, my churrasco was the same dry, hard and burned. When I got home and I realize that I called and the customer... More

Their food is amazing!!! It is so authentic. Everything is fresh made. Prices make it a great value. I always order from the child's menu, because the portions are so large. My favorite is the churasco steak with the rice and beans mixed and the plantains. Totally delish!!! I only wish I weren't 750 miles away. It is a must-have... More

We went here mid-afternoon during the weekend and the place was very busy. The wait was worth it as the food is delicious and the portions are big. We had the pupusas and the fried fish, which we shared and could not finish since it was so big. The waiters were not overly friendly but that is probably because they... More
