“Good food, friendly service -- but be patient!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This place has a steady stream of customers for eat in and take away. It is a very humble corner location on Mt Pleasant St, NW but it is very clean. When I ate there EVERY customer was Latino except for me and my friend (always a very good sign). Apparently, their puspusas are the BEST in DC and I would NOT disagree! I had tacos (puspusa folded into a taco shape) and they were fabulous... the puspusa was freshly made and all the ingredients were FRESH.

The only downside is it appears to be fast food, but it actually takes some time to get your food. That's cuz they are making each order FRESH.

Well worth the wait!

The people behind the counter are lovely as well.

And the price? extremely affordable! My new favorite place in Mt Pleasant for sure!

“Best Latin Food in DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I've tried most of the places available in this city and aside from Oyamel, never been very happy (not that Oyamel is authentic -- it's just good). This place is legit. Their beans are fantastic. Pupusa's are great. The grilled chicken was also very good. It's cheap and shows it but in a good way.
