Great pupusas, friendly atmosphere. Run by a Salvadorian native who speaks fluent English and loves to chat with customers, and his wife.

Excellent food, great service. Their mixed popusa are the best!!!! I couldn't believe they have agua de marañon. marañon is an unusual fruit. Its seed, the cashew nut grows on top of it in a thick rubbery shell.

The food is always fresh and delicious, service is always good. Try their juices! This the closest to authentic I've tried in this area. Love it.

It is very easy to mess us pupusas (over cook, be stingy with the meat, etc). Fortunately, Mama Lita doesn't do this. The pupusas were decently sized and cooked perfectly. We had the pork, chicken and shrimp pupusas. I have eaten take-out here for work but this was the first time ordering for my family.
The slaw was great and the salsa had a better bitterness to it (works well with pupusas, go with hot salsa for chips). Lastly, the prices are cheap (each is different but the average is about $3) and the service is good.
