El Comatilo is a great little spot that I was lucky to stumble upon. It is hidden just off the main road behind a convenience store. I actually missed it and was rerouted by my GPS, so keep your eyes open when approaching. The staff...More

I go here periodically to eat and each time I come away truly satisfied. The food, the atmosphere and the service are second to none. Today I had a pulled pork burrito which I purchased "to go" -- it was excellent!

I love this place and the family that runs it. Has this new burrito on recommendation and it was perfect. Had it again a couple days later. Never had anything bad. Fun watching the place grow.

Papusas that people seem to rave about - just OK. We tried a few different ones. They aren't bad either, but just don't live up to the hype. A bit bland, no matter what it was filled with. Enchiladas were good. No complaints. Thumbs up....More

We found it by accident. Tough to find if you don't know it is there. We had fish tacos and a chicken and avocado salad. Tastes great. Service was terrific and prices cheap. An excellent lunch!

This restaurant sits just of the main road and is a hidden gem. Been here a couple of times and the food is always great. Authentic Mexican and Salvadoran cuisine.

Our whole party was very happy, all of the food was well made and delicious. Not a huge selection of vegetarian food, but the vegetarian in the party was quite happy.

The place is small somyou might want to get your food to go.The food is basically delicious. The only problem is I like a thick juicy chicken breast, theirs is thin and tough. The burrito bowls are fabulous. Their plantains and yucca are exceptional too.

I heard this place was good but I got the blandest burrito ever. The chicken was flavorless and cold and the burrito had way too much sour cream and lettuce and the whole thing was kind of a gooey mass. It was so bad I...More
