Still on Top of the List

This small little hole in the wall continues to be one of my favorite places to dine for a great meal. Service has always been great, the food is fantastic, and I cannot believe the amount of food they serve you for the price. Garlic shrimp, pupusa, and the beef soup are amazing.

Food is always great tasting, large portions, and affordable prices. Menu offers a wide selection to choose a tasty dish. Friendly service, large dining area, cash or credit, and ample parking. Hope this helps with your first visit.

We usually come here for lunch but this time we came for early dinner. The prices were obviously a little higher for dinner and the portions were huge! I could not finish the steak. The service was good and food was delicious as always!

Tried this local place for dinner after reading the reviews and receiving good feedback from people that have ate here. I am impressed!

Food is delicious and the menu is plentiful. It gets very busy on the weekends and it can get quite loud, but that shouldn't deter you.

Always a great experience. Either the restaurant is far from me, I will do my best to enjoy it. Always I started with a pupusa with cheese and loroco ( loroco is a flower from El Salvador). It like a tortilla but filled with the cheese and loroco. For main dish I always get the carne asada and come with... 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

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 a big deal here, from fish to shrimp. All affordable, must try the... More
