Lobster tostadas were so good I had them two days in a row. The mixed pupusa was out of this world. Ice cold beer and friendly service. A real find!

Great food, great staff! Loved the Pupusa's!! We really enjoyed all the food, relaxed atmosphere and excellent service. I really liked watching the Pupusa's being made right out in front of the restaurant, it has inspired me to try making my own!

Love this place! The pupusas are great; be sure to add the cabbage and sauce provided at the table to get the real experience. the spinach pupusa was delicioius but so is the mixed. The tostadas were freshly made on a crispy tortilla. The burritos were huge, enough to share.

Wonderful experience here at this family-run, local spot! Excellent, fresh food that is home made and reasonably priced. Definitely check out the pupusa and the coconut fish soup! We loved it so much we came back many times. Best food on the island!

Stick to the pupusas. I ordered a whole fish, when it came out it was rubbery, was taken back and recooked ended up half nice and flakey, half rubbery. It was a late lunch I was hungry so I ate it. The fish did not taste off so I was not worried about food poisoning, but did not enjpy it.... More

Oh my, we went here twice and would have gone every day if we were near. The little lady who prepares these with love is sweet and kind. They will fill these pillows of dough with all kinds of meat, fish, potatoe, veggie. Their cheeses on island are sweeter and softer. Try the pumpkin, which is similar to zuchinni. THEN,... More

Came here for lunch on a sleepy Wednesday afternoon and ordered Pupusas and beer. Everything was delicious. The accompaniments we pickled cabbage (I don't like anything pickled) delish!!! The hot sauce and tomato sauce also very very good. If I'm passing by the area again I would definitely stop by.

Thank daniehudson
