The pupusas are the star of the show priced at approximately $4 a piece. It is tasty with the right amount of cheese. The plantains are tasty but heavy and the yucca is bland. The spicy sauce is tasty and the cabbage salad pairs well...More

I can hardly wait for my annual trip to Los Angeles with a group of high school students, and this restaurant is one of the reasons why. I had no idea what a pupusa was before coming here the first time, but now I am...More

Got a pork, bean and cheese pupusa served with the spicy cabbage salad. Really tasty and so cheap. Cooked fresh to order. I recommend getting one while a friend holds your spot in the eggslut line

Well I'd say its a close cousin of the tacos but in thicker sense. Kidding aside this was very yummy but the wait it long even when there wasn't much of line. Like their homemade hot sauce, not too spicy but very tasty.

I love getting their pupusas and they are so good! They make it fresh and you can watch them make it as well. The service is fast and I recommend going there for their food.

Great fresh pupusa cook to order. You have to have patience waiting for them to get the food ready. Not cheap comparing to regular pupusa places but fun.

Having lunch at Grand Central and decided to try the pupusa's here. They are cooked to order, handmade right in front of you. I ordered the pork with a side of plantains. They put a spicy cabbage slaw on top. This is definitely not "fast...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
