No matter what you choose off the menu it is amazing. We lived a few blocks away and would hit this place up when we were in need of food. It is notoriously not open most times we went by. But when it is open we enjoy eating in. By far my most favourite Central American restaurant ever.

Decided to try this restaurant for lunch . . . and it was very good! Shared - appetizer, empanadas, pupusoas, flautas and also had the tortilla soup. Everything was very tasty and arrived hot! Our server was very pleasant and helpful in assisting with our menu selections.

I have an allergic reaction to cilantro and though the majority of dishes in this restaurant have this herb in it, our waitress went out of her way to check with the chef as to which, if any dishes, did not have any. The pleasant surprise was a wonderful luncheon of Chorizo sausage, fried chicken wings slightly spiced (superb), rice... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it was truly a great lunch. she had the Papusas and I had the beef tacos. Everything was flavourful and very reasonably priced. Service is slow like others have commented, but if you are with good company it doesn't matter. I will definitely return and bring more friends to enjoy the great... More

I went here with a few colleagues tonight and loved it. Everything was very fresh and the service was great. Drink selection was somewhat poor but not enough to mark them down as the food was so good.

Myself, my husband and another couple went there on a Friday for supper. The food was amazing. We had Fried Steak, Sausage & Wing meal, Quesada, Burrito and we all really enjoyed our meals. Also at 7PM they have a guy come in to play the guitar and sing which is real nice too. WE WILL BE GOING BACK AGAIN... More

They have some scrumptious pupusas and El Salvadoran enchiladas! My family and I never leave this restaurant hungry. Try an horchata too, it's such a refreshing drink.

A large group of us went for my birthday. I made reservations and we had a great time up to the end when we were over charged. The mariachi band was so great, food was good, service poor but it looked like the one guy despite the large reservation made ahead of time looked like he was on his own...... More

I'd been here previously and gave them a good review. Last night was a disaster. We had a larger party and called to advise there would be about 12 of us. When we got there ( and we arrived in drive and drabs) we were lectured that they were full and they needed to know exactly how many were coming.... More

I've stopped by this place many a times for a meal. I've tried most of the items on the menu and there are many good ones. The service is on the slow side so don't go here if you are in a rush, for those that have vacationed in the Caribbean, this restaurant is definitely on Caribbean time, servers are... More
