First time to order the Salvadorian sampler ... delicious, but be aware, a lot of food for two, so order accordingly. What's on the dish, you ask ... steak, chicken, sausage, pork, cheese, fried yuca, black beans, and the list goes on. Affordable prices, large portions, tasty food, and great service, Makes for a perfect combination. Hope this helps.

Visited her looking for papusa and left finding that and more. Hidden gem in Pines. Food all came out hot and delicious. Prices are very reasonable for the portions. The servers were quick and attentive. Great family vibe. Will be going again. Parking is tight which is my only gripe. So do yourself a favor and visit this establishment you'll... More

The last time I visited this place was 5 years ago when the DELICIOUS lunch specials were $ 4.99 . Well, this time the prices are only $ 1 more or $ 5.99 for unbelievable Salvadorian cuisine. Here are the lunches one may expect at that amazing cost. Chicken Breast , Liver + Onions, Fish Steak, Chicken Fajitas, Grilled Steak,... More

This is a very authentic Salvadoran restaurant where you can sample many of the traditional dishes from El Salvador. It is a casual place with delicious food at relatively inexpensive prices

Menu selection, taste, service, and great value .... what's not to like! Over the years I've ordered several entrees, but always come back to my favorite "Bistec de Pollo" (grilled chicken filet, smothered with grilled onions, and accompanied with rice & beans). All nationalities walk through the door to eat here, so check out the other reviews, and then drive... More

I love this place! Food is always fresh, delicious, and opened late for the late hunger and don't want fast, greasy food. I never had a complaint, we eat at least once a week from there. Recommended the atlakat special for those who are really hungry...enjoy

Lunch special is great for what you get. Quick and friendly service. Place is showing its age and the last few times I've been my churasco has tasted like fish as if it was cooked after or on the same grill as a fish. Not terrible, but if your allergic or don't like fish that's no bueno. Otherwise always a... More

if you like pupusas, this is the place to be. I had the pupusas with chicharron, they were amazing. I have been in this place twice. Service is good and fast.
