Stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Gettysburg. This is a very authentic Mexican restaurant and the food is delicious. We had the Una enchilada, Una Pupusa. We had never heard of a Pupusa before, but it was very good. Wish we lived...More

Not many people. The food was ok. The waitress was in too much of a hurry to remove plates and glasses.

Go to this place for the lunch specials. Pupusas are great. Food is overpriced otherwise. And avoid the margaritas.

Ate here for the first time in several years (prior visits 2009-2010) and it was just as good as I remembered. I pretty much always get the combination with a tamal (I get chicken) and pupusa. It is always great and the waitresses are friendly....More
