Traditional Salvadorean dishes served in a small but inviting restaurant. This is right down the street from my job, and I don't eat here as often as I should. Good service and great food.

This is a great authentic restaurant. It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside but the food is excellent and the staff makes you feel right at home. The type of food is Mexican/El Salvador and is very good and great value....More

Not many places near Kansas City to eat food from El Salvador. The setting is not much to look at - old 70s diner decor - but the food is very interesting. Half from El Salvador - half from Mexico (with a twist) Puposas are...More
