Here you can get every type of pupusa imaginable. Not only that, but you have five different sizes to chose from. And, their pupusas are delicious. Try the giant shrimp pupusa for something different -- it's delightful!

The papusas are different for me & very good. They can be filled w/anything you want. Good for an on-the-go snack too. Kind of like a quesadilla.

This is definitely a non tourist place. It is a family friendly restaurant with a variety of awesome food. We missed out on the pupusas but they looked fabulous. Every one was very friendly. Be sure to pay at the counter when you are done.
