“Great Food”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food and the service was great. the only reason that i would not give them a 5 star is not due to the food or service. The tables were so closed to each-other that you could be involve in every conversation.

“Enjoyed our return visit”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We stopped at this small family run business located in a strip mall for a quick lunch a few years ago and now make a point to visit each time we're in the area. Good food, quick service, and friendly owners. Best guacamole I've ever had! Great value for your money too!

“Great food at good prices”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

My wife and I came here after just moving to the area. A new neighbor said he had been here before and it was nice. We found the food very good, and the margaritas refreshing. For the location it is reasonably priced. We will be making this a regular visit for the authentic Mexican and Salvadoran food.

“Our go to favorite restaurant”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We eat at Acajutla about 2 times per month. It is near by, food is great, and the margaritas quite good. We usually stick to fish and shrimp which are always fresh and delicious.

“Decent place to eat”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Where I live there are many Mexican/Salvadorean places to eat. Acajutla is okay, but nothing special. It's decently priced and the food is not too bad. My Mexican-Colombian sister--law prefers the pupusa's over other places.
