“Food was excellent. What else do you want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

we tried many apps. and shared a main (sorry dont remember everything)-plantain, yucca, steak with shrimp, salad with mango- a bunch of stuff. Everything was excellent. except for the deep fried things which I didnt care for - but that is part of the adventure. I love latin food but had never tried El Salvadorian. I went back 2 nights later for takeout. try the plantain.

We're a pupusa-loving family and these are pretty good. Service is slow (but better than their sister restaurant in El Sobrante). Don't miss the namesake platanos...yummy!
