Very friendly proprietor offering a wide variety of papusas. Although this is a tourist town, the restaurant seemed to cater primarily to in-country tourists. This was an enjoyable chance to try papusas.

There is a live kitchen experience so that means Smokey atmosphere in the restaurant and really hot. Food was barely edible. Like a panini with some cheese in it. Pulled pork was gross. Only pro is that it's really cheap but you don't really want...More

No doubt Chero's prepares the most authentic pupusas in Guatemala! The atmosphere is lively and full of locals, which is always a good sign. The restaurant is conveniently located in the center of town. And, you can feed your whole family for very little money....More

No frills here just great pupusas. I love the slaw they give you to put on top of the pupusas. I at least have to have 2 pupusas to fill me up.

Our group of 13 had dinner here. Most people had two pupusas each; I had four and loved them. Pupusas are all that they serve. There are about 15 kinds to get. At 10 Q per pupusas, they are cheap and filling.
