“Steam table fare”
Review of Tipicos Margoth

Tipicos Margoth
Ranked #22 of 366 Restaurants in San Salvador
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Salvadoran
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 8, 2018

The good news is that this is a very inexpensive place to have a meal. It resembles a giant cafeteria and the food is overcooked on steam tables. The service was slow and it was pretty busy. Supposedly this is typical Salvadorian cuisine, but fortunately, I had many other meals that were much better than at Tipicos Margoth.

This is one of a number of Tipico's Margot. They are arranged somewhat like a buffet place, where you select your pre-made dishes along a counter, ad your drinkables and pay at the cahier's. There are no frills and no luxury, but the food is good at the price - and if you want to sample some of the local varieties, outside of the luxury varieties in an hotel, I'd recommend this for choice. This is where the locals go in order to have an inexpensive meal.

Food was quite good, service was ok. Good price and nice environment. Pupusas were ok, I had higher expectations, toppings help to make them tasty

As guests of locals, this was the first restaurant we went to in the city. Turned out to be a great experience. Restaurant was busy, but the line moved quickly. Food was all very enjoyable. Don’t miss the the pork pupasas - great flavor. Enjoyed all of the items, and found it to be a great value.
For tourists, this is a don’t miss!

Enjoyed a good buffet lunch including corn puposas at this place. Good variety of food offerings and the place seems quite popular.
