The staff is lovely. My first time here. Ordered 3 different pupusas. I liked the pork, my husband liked the steak but the pork bean and cheese was great to. Served with cabbage slaw. Everything tastes fresh. 3 pupusas was enough for both of us....More

Just tried it this noon. Very tasty pupusas (we got cheese, shrimp, and flower/cheese) with a spicy coleslaw and fresh juices (I got mango). Fried bananas, too. Not fast but very friendly staff with the food cooked then and there and served hot. Tiny little...More

Fantastic authentic pupusas, including crema and salsa. Makes me homesick for Central America! Great fresh juices, too, not to mention Latino hospitality. It's not fast food, so it takes a minute, but totally worth it. Buen provecho!

I would not have guessed that I could find excellent El Salvadoran food in Salt Lake City, but it's here, just waiting to be discovered. The ambience is not anything special--just four little tables in a restaurant right next to a coin laundry--but who cares...More

This place is great. You can't beat hand made papusa for less than $2. The owners are awesome and the service is the best. This place deserves recognition and lots of business
