Best Pupusas and service so far in this area! I can call in advance to place my order, and have it ready when I arrive to dine in! Also, the customer service is the best compared to the other pupuserias in the area! The pupusas are well made, being filled and with a great amount of loroco, also the curtido is well seasoned and pickled.

The service and food are so excellent. I have tried different recipes and they have been not only healthy, but very tasty and well cooked.

The servers are very attentive and are always around to give me the best service. I would commend Martita, Grecia, Dora and Tania, who are my regular servers, to whom I am very grateful. Dinning here is like enjoying food at home.

Thank you.

Cute, renovated modern pupuseria with yummy food and friendly service. The food came out quickly, but then getting a server to pay our check took a very long time. They have maybe twenty varieties of pupusas, which is cool. I tried three types, and steak was the best. My only comment on the food is that in the pupusa revuelta, the beans, cheese, and pork were each in a separate section of the pupusa instead of being mixed together, which was weird. We had three and they were all like this. Otherwise, great food.

I don't know what these people judging this place one star are on... I don't speak Spanish and I was treated very well. Their pupusas are the best I've ever had. Get the ones with chicharones, beans and cheese. Will definitely be back and become a regular...

Best pupusas and horchata around! Tons of vegetarian options! The staff was super nice and we got our to-go lunch order in about 15 minutes. Street parking in front and garage parking (my preference) across the street.

Terrible customer service, the workers at this location act indifferent with people who don’t speak Spanish. I am truly upset that I was treated this way. This woman here, has given me attitude, spoke about me amongst her other coworkers, has judged me from my appearance, and just purely acted unprofessional. Terrible service. Terrible employees.

Got the Pupusa with refried beans, the Tamale del Elote, Chicken Tamale, the Fries with yellow Mayo, and the Steak burrito.
Steak Burrito: steak was over cooked but honestly good, shell a bit soggy but understandable with delivery, rice good in burrito. Overall 6/10
Tamale Del Elote: Super small and not very good with the sour creamish sauce. Best to throw in microwave with butter n eat. 5/10.
Pupusa with refried bean: wife loved, rated 8/10. Crisp, little greasy, but tasty.
Fries with yellow Mayo: little sweet, but pretty tasty. 7/10.
Great price, decent meal.

Pupusas were good. Service was a bit off - we ordered guacamole, and it never arrived. Not sure if the staff did not speak English or refused to. My Spanish is barely up to the task. Horchata was too sweet.

I would vote a 4.5 really. Really good pupusas with many different combos that are all delicious. Horchata is lacking a little. Everything else is pretty good. Wait staff is attentive. Pretty quick turnaround time in kitchen even though most things are made whrn you oder.
