Great menu with many choices. Food is authentic & tasty. Owner friendly & homey atmosphere. Popular for takeout.
A friend suggested this restaurant and I have to admit I wasn't sure I wanted to go in! This is a family run business and they prepare food as though you were dining at a friend's home. Everthing we ate from appetizers to mains were tasty and well presented. The service was excellent and very friendly.

Visited on Saturday about 7:00PM. This is a simple unpretentious family restaurant. Very few diners present. We received a very warm welcome and soon had our drinks, large Tecate beers at $5.25. We had a cheese and cheese and pork Pupusas which were very tasty but we found the cheese and pork one to be the better of the two.... 更多
