We stopped here for lunch - in heart of San Pedro easy to find on main road - as we wanted to try more local food than the more touristy restaurants. There was a frozen pineapple (n/a) beverage that was amazingly refreshing. The pupusas are...More

They have a small scale menu. You can see food being prepared in front of you. Pretty much all is hand food. Shredded cabbage and salsa can be added to all the dishes The papusas are great and varied. The flavors are good. Nothing too...More

We stopped in here for lunch one day, and the pupusas were excellent. They're a small little cash-only place, but that's not a problem when the food is as reasonable as this. There are plenty of other burrito and taco plates, but if they have...More

It was probably our cheapest meal in San Pedro. It's good home-made kind of food. Note, their flavor profile is more Salvadorean (from El Salvador) less Belizean. So their "stewed chicken" is not the same as the belizean stewed chicken you get at say, Elvis...More

Great food at the local hang out. If you are looking to not break the bank when feeding your family, this is a great place. Quality and taste way better than prices may imply. Get ere done!

Had no idea what a papusa was until I asked the waiter. Kind of like a flat tamale. Simple, not too spicy unless you add the hot sauce (caution - its really hot!). 3 or 4 papusas will fill you up. Very affordable. Cash Only!

None of us had ever had a pupusa, so we decided to try Pupuseria Salvadoreno after finding there menu in our condo. They were good, especially with the coleslaw and the tomato sauce that are served with them. I recommended the place to several others...More

We love small Mom n Pop type businesses, and this is a perfect example why. We were greeted at the front door by a woman grilling fresh pupusas (kind of like a tortilla), and a local man earnestly reported the food here is good, before...More

Can't remember about the credit cards, but they accept both US dollars (not change, but dollar bills) and Belize dollars, as does everywhere else in Belize.
