This is a no-nonsense interior with a beating heart of GOOD, simple food. I had to find a place to hang out while contractors finished up at my house ... so glad I did! I had the chicken quesadilla on a wheat tortilla ... just the right amount of crunch, and so go on what was a rainy cold Friday.... More

Aguacate Verde is one of the neighborhoods best kept secrets! Service is very friendly; the owner is from Peru and I have sampled dishes from the Peruvian buffet that was served at one of the restaurant's monthly special events, "A Celebration of Diversity".

Some of the more authentic-tasting Mexican/Salvadorian cooking around. Tacos al pastor is a crowd pleaser and definitely one of my favorites.

Yes, it's kind of a hole-in-the-wall as others say but when is that really a concern when you're going out for some tacos or pupusas?... More

We have only eaten there once. This is bare bones traditional Mexican food. They do not cater to their customers, simply serve what is offered on the menu without any fuss. Great value though, two of us ate dinner for about $15.

this is a hidden gem. Extremely good Salvadorian food, at dirt cheap prices. You can get a full lunch for $4...try the huaraches.
