“Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

My family and I came across this place over 2 years ago and since then we eat here at least twice a month. The food is good and so is the portion. However, the service can use a little bit improvement..

“Tasty and Reasonable Mex/Salvadoran Food”
Reviewed October 17, 2009

This is a great local restaurant that is very reasonable. They have a great selection of Salvadoraqn dishes (bifstek enceballado, pupusas, etc) all under $10. Wash it down with Salvadoran or Mexican beers. The decor is not fancy but service is good most of time and food hits the spot.

“The Pupusas Rock”
Reviewed February 12, 2009

Boyfriend and I chose El Zocalo for an early Valentine's dinner out where they have the most fabulous Pupusas that cannot be beat and are SO good every single time we've gone. The El Salvadorian ambience and jukebox added to the flavor of our budget-minded evening, as well as the colorful sweet and quaint cardboard decorated Valentine hearts. We will be coming back more often and with guests, now that qualifying soccer is in play. Would be perfect if only they placed a television for the games...Good times!
