“Excellent traditional Salvadoran fare in cheerful, casual restaurant”

El Zocalo Restaurant
Cuisines: Latin, Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 January 2017

This is a good choice for tasty Salvadoran food in a casual busy storefront setting. Service is pleasant and well-meaning, but a somewhat slow; just relax and enjoy the chips and delicious salsa while waiting for your meal. The green salad with avocado and tomatoes was a success, featuring an excellent Thousand Island dressing (helpfully offered on the side). Wonderful shrimp dishes are served in various sauces including buttery/garlic which was terrific. The specialty of the house is the pupusa – a pancake-shaped thick cornmeal pastry filled with cheese, chicken or pork and served with cirtrus-seasoned slaw. Scrumptious and filling. The beer selection was fair, but the red wine by the glass was surprisingly good. Prices are low. A great value and highly recommended.

Great food here, pupusas are always made fresh but it can take a while to get your food because of that.

My family and I came across this place over 2 years ago and since then we eat here at least twice a month. The food is good and so is the portion. However, the service can use a little bit improvement..

This is a great local restaurant that is very reasonable. They have a great selection of Salvadoraqn dishes (bifstek enceballado, pupusas, etc) all under $10. Wash it down with Salvadoran or Mexican beers. The decor is not fancy but service is good most of time and food hits the spot.
