    Perfectly authentic pupusas, fixed fresh when you order. Very tasty, and a huge variety of fillings on the menu. Great staff too, super friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is new, clean, affordable prices and the team is doing a great job.

    A lot of vegetarian options 👌

    Happy to support the business, will definitely come back 🌟

    Great food, especially the tilapia combo dish. Alicia provided me with excellent customer service and allowed me to try out samples of their home-made tropical drinks; my favorite was Tamarindo!!!

    Small hole in the wall place with super friendly service and excellent food. Wife and I stopped in after dropping off our daughter and were pleasantly surprised by the food. Super fresh ingredients and everything seemed to be made with allot of love for what they do. I’d highly recommend you check them out.

    Overall: 3.5/5

    Food: 3/5
    - Tap water was sort of dirty, with visible flakes of something white floating on top.
    - The Fritos Locos were pretty low effort (photo attached). They were pretty clearly frozen crinkle cut fries sloppily covered in ketchup, mayo, and some cheese. However, they were nicely cooked (reheated?) and ended up surprisingly tasty!
    - The chicken in the Pollos con Tajadas was nicely seasoned but it either wasn’t fried long enough or the oil wasn’t hot enough- it was generally soggy. However, the fried plantains were delicious and the pink sauce was also good

    Service: 4/5
    Initial service was attentive and warm, and warned me that my Pollo con Tajadas would likely take up to 25 minutes, which I appreciated being warned about. I went with it anyways and it ended up coming out much sooner than that, perhaps explaining the sogginess. Given the sit-down nature of the restaurant, they would be well served to invest in some silverware, as the plastic fork I was given was pretty much useless carving up the bone-in chicken. They gave me a plastic knife after my request, which helped, but it was not quite up to the task.

    Atmosphere: 3.5/5
    Cute small family restaurant that’s authentic but older, and is transitioning towards having modern aspects. The floors and tables feel old fashioned and slightly dingy but the sign is new and the menus on TVs are updated and have nice graphics. The bathroom requires a key, but was in better shape than I was expecting.

    Enjoyed a Delicious and most importantly…Authentic Central American Dinner in a family friendly atmosphere (uncommon on most Hispanic restaurants). Staff was kind, friendly and patient. The Horchata was the real deal (not the pre-made stuff you get in other places). And of course the pupusas were on point! . My kids enjoyed the enchiladas salvadoreñas and the Papas locas so much as well. Definitely recommend and is my new spot for authentic Central American cuisine.
