This is one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore. Food is excellent and affordable. I love the pupusas, plantains, and tacos de barbacoa. To clarify, this is not a Mexican restaurant, and the picture in this review is not of the restaurant. They have renovated the place in the last few years, and it's quite spacious. Great for larger groups or families.

Though the neigborhood may be a bit questionable, this is a great place to eat Salvadorian or Mexican food. We were greeted by the manager and had a musician playing Sunday for lunch. The place was very clean and the menu came with pictures of dishes as well as names in Spanish and English. We had the recommended pollo con crema (chicken with cream) and it was excellent- tender pieces of chicken breast in a delicious cream sauce (not spicy but just the right flavor) with a nice mound of rice and a small salad, refried beans and a tortilla. As soon as we entered, were served we were given hot nachos with dip, and that was also great! The portions were large and the food and sevice and prices excellent! Absolutely recommended!

A real find in Fells Point. Varied and interesting menu. Especially shrimp with gaelic and polla noranja. Large portions. Fast service. Many desserts. Great hot chocolate. Everyone at the table was pleased.

El Salvador is one of a number of good Latino restaurants within a few blocks in the Fells Point area. I have been here a number of times and the food is always good. The atmosphere has a genuine feel of a Central American comedor, casual and not overly decorated, We have used the restaurant for catering and for group events as well and the food is always first class if not gourmet. So if you are looking to step beyond chain "Mexican" restaurants and get a taste of true Central America transported to Baltimore, this is the place.

The atmosphere was nice. The server spoke limited english but still did a great job. I ordered a pork/cheese papusa and two chicken tacos. The tacos were very plain jane. The Pico De Gallo which came on the side was good and helped spruce them up a bit. To be honest, the best tacos I have had so far are from a taco truck about 1 block north of EL Salvador Restaurant.

There was a a piano player playing nice music but it was very loud.
