This place is awesome! Get tacos and pupusas! If you have never had a pupusa, try it, you will be happy you did. Pupusas are one of the best hangover foods. My favorite pupusa is pork and cheese. This place is very simple in decor,...More

Yes, this is a hole-in-the wall sort of place, which are often great, but we don't get all the hype. We live supper close and it is very easy to access, but we rarely have the desire to return since the first few times. The...More

Nice little restaurant. Has combined walk up for carry out and dine in. The burrito is a little on the smaller size compared to the ones in Chicago, but extremely tasty. Great price too!

My BF swears the salsa is store bought and they threw in some fresh cilantro to make it look fresh. The salsa is ok, the chips are decent. The bathroom is a dumpy little storage area for their spare chairs, mostly. There was no soap...More
