Hidden Treasure

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

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
