Not many people. The food was ok. The waitress was in too much of a hurry to remove plates and glasses.

Go to this place for the lunch specials. Pupusas are great. Food is overpriced otherwise. And avoid the margaritas.

First, let me say that we went during the FIFA cup USA game. The restaurant was packed with people watching the game, which significantly slowed our food delivery. However, the service was very attentive, the atmosphere was family friendly and the food was good. The...More

For latino food, this is the place to go. Had the steak/shrimp(2)/scallop(2) meal. Came with an assortment of peppers/tomato/onion cooked with the scallop/shrimp. I think the pepper was soaked in a salsa (or some other spice) that was very tasty. Waiter service was excellent. Only...More
