Went to Papagallo for the first, but not last time on Saturday night with my husband and two other couples. We made a reservation for 7:30 and when we arrived, the restaurant and parking lot were packed. As other reviews have noted, the outside is just a typical strip mall, but the interior is nice, although very small. They told us our table was not available yet, even with the reservation. We managed to get seats together at the nice, but again, small bar. After a long wait, we were told they could not seat us together! This was disappointing as we had made a reservation. I understand the restaurant is small, but they should not take reservations for a party of 6 if they can't accomodate us. Luckily, Karina, the bartender, really turned our visit around with how warm and welcoming she was. She and her family own the restaurant (we met her mom and sister during dinner).
The menu is very varied with American, Mexican, Italian, and of course San Salvadorean and Puerto Rican food. Karina gave us some advice on what to order as there were so many great sounding selections when we asked her. The food took a LONG time to arrive, but once it did, everyone loved their meal! I had the spicy camarones, which is great if you like spicy food. Other entree we ordered included another shrimp dish, the mixed grill, and Mofongo. Everything was great. I think the prices are VERY reasonable too. We split an order of churros for dessert which was also really good.
Be sure to ask Karina to make you her "liquid dessert" shot at the end of the meal - it was a perfect ending to a great meal.
We will be back!
