No frills here just great pupusas. I love the slaw they give you to put on top of the pupusas. I at least have to have 2 pupusas to fill me up.

Our group of 13 had dinner here. Most people had two pupusas each; I had four and loved them. Pupusas are all that they serve. There are about 15 kinds to get. At 10 Q per pupusas, they are cheap and filling.

Excellent service, and genuine Salvadorian cuisine. Fresh homemade ingredients. At a very affordable price, sit, eat and watch the people go bye.
