Delicious bargain, sticks to your ribs

Delicious and affordable food. Small family-run restaurant. Not fancy. This is an unusual Salvadoran restaurant in that food without meat is available for vegetarians, and the food is good. I prefer the plate with two guacamole tostadas, rice, beans and plantain. Hell, even the rice tastes... read more

Great, authentic Salvadoran food and I love those fried plantains. In fact, we went twice over our 3 day weekend in town.

So El Salvadorian food is very different than Mexican food. Many of the dishes have the same name but they are not the same in any way. The flavoring is much much more interesting. I have eaten there a bunch of time for dinner, lunch, and breakfast. They have palm which is great. Never had it anywhere else like the... More

Went here with friends for the first time. Very casual atmosphere, good service, good food. Pretty good variety for both meat and fish eaters. Reasonable prices. Try the plantain appetizer.

This restaurant has some of the latin food I have ever tasted. This was the first Guatemalen restaurant I had ever eaten at. I was unsure if I would like it but wanted to try something authentic. When you walk in the smells are incredible. Everyone was speaking spanish and Telemundo was playing soccor on the televisions. The food was... More

This is a Latin American site with an emphasis on Guatemalan food. Breakfast is served all day. My wife and I had an appetizer of Pupusa (stuffed corn tortilla with cheese and pork). Our entrées were Churrasco (steak with rice, avocado, fried beans, scallions and salsa) perfectly done and delicious. My wife had Grilled Shrimp. Too full for dessert.

In 2011, I spent a couple of months in Waltham and this soon became my favorite restaurant there. the food is great - tasty and carefully prepared. It really tastes homemade. Love the plantains, the veggie "enchiladas" (what most mexican places would call a taco, with avocado, queso fresco, onions, lime - a perfect mix of salty, tart, crunchy and... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat with our 2 year old and our parents and other family members on a Sunday morning in Waltham. We came across this gem. I dream of a breakfast that includes perfectly seasoned black beans, eggs with tomato and onion, platanos, and handmade tortillas. I was told the house special chorizo was also excellent.... More
