I cant believe there is only one review for this place. This place is the best and draws a decent crowd. It also should be under Latin American not "Mexican" food. The family is from El Salvador.

Their pupusas (chalupa-ish) are a perfect balance of crispy and fluffy. The chicken pepian is very rich and flavorful. I've enjoyed hearty soups, creamy frijoles and the platanos (fried plantains) will melt in your mouth. They have some ethnic South Ameican dishes and also your basic burritos etc.

The service is just fine but it is not fast food so you need to wait for your orders. Its all fresh home cooking. The prices are right and the place is clean.

This is one of those great family run ethnic restaurants. The staff is very friendly and remember their repeat customers. They work hard to keep the place clean and everyone happy. The prices cannot be beat for what you get. The tortillas are excellent, all the dishes were spiced just right and very flavorful.
Give them a try. Its in a strip mall with with neighbors of an Indian buffet , bento place and Burgerville too. It wont win any ambience awards but atleast there is plenty of parking and its easy to find on Cornell.
