Eric Guevara

The food is amazing.

Rhoda Weatherall

I had a pork and cheese, pork bean and cheese with a horchata. All were delicious and came with tangy pickled cabbage that I loved and what tasted like tomato juice, not a fan of that. Will go back when I'm in town, so worth it.

PJ Freebourn

Wonderful experience. Such helpful and friendly staff. The atmosphere and people are very authentic. Pupusas were good. The slaw tasted very fresh and nicely seasoned (kinda wish that it had a little more heat, there is a hot sauce at the table). Salsa is on the thinner side.

I must say that this was one of the most deliciously authentic El Salvadoran restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of dining at. The service was extremely quick and the employees were all overly friendly. I will definitely be going back and taking friends with me. Thank you guys for the awesome experience!

Pupusas are excellent!

Too long to get food and the food can be better


This place is excellent, the pupusas, the pasteles de pollo con papa, everything. Choose your own seating, prompt and friendly service, solid experience. Highly recommended and will be back again.

This family owned business goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at home. They offer a variety of hand crafted dishes, that are all very authentic. Their pupusas are the best outside of El Salvador. They are super delicious, and come in four or five different flavors. Don't miss out, you will not be disappointed. Great price too. Enjoy.

Eduardo Villanueva

La mejor comida que he probado en los últimos 4 años. Gracias por hacerme recordar un pedazo de mi tierra...

Amazing food and services, highly recommend it!!

Patricia Bradby

Great cheap lunch spot. I ordered the mix pupusa and the zucchini pupusa. Both were yummy. The slaw stuff they bring has an interesting herb taste to it but it's great on the pupusas with the salsa/sauce that's also put on the table.

Mimi G

I feel like all the reviews that it has been posted, they’re friend from the owner or they don’t know what authentic pupusas taste like. Ok I thought, according to the reviews, this place is awesome. Let’s try it out, to my surprise, the pupusas were dry and they didn’t have any food in it. Just dough, nothing in them. I ordered rice dough for mine and for my friend corn dough. So when they were served, all of them were rice what a customer service. Like i said I don’t know where this place got good reviews from, this place is not that good at all. I just got a responded from the owner and she’s stating that she checked on my table which is wrong information. I ordered my pupusas by phone, I repeated 2 times to the lady that one ordered was corn and the order one was rice dough. My order was all wrong, I understand that all the ladies were born in El Salvador, I never denied that matter. However when you’re born and raised in El Salvador, you know so well the authentic flavor of real pupusas. I know in a foreign country, it’s hard to find the real cheese and the seasoning but can u please provide more flavor, food in them and make sure to place the right orders that’s all?.

Julianna Miller

Pupusas are unquestionably authentic and service is great!

Tarsis Coreas

Authentic Salvadoran food! Great flavor! Staff was quick to take orders and serve food!

Olvin Anariba

The don't have any idea of how tacos are, We ordered an horchata for my son and the glass brought 2 hairs, the radish had sour cream on it as if it had been taken from another dish cause we don't ordered nothing with sour cream, + the waitress gave us a bad service

Good place to eat Pupusas

Sophia Entzminger

The pupusas were good, but the tomato salsa for the pupusas was WAY TOO THIN!! It was like they put water in it , to stretch it and save money ! I've tasted great tomato salsa for pupusas, and this wasn't good. I prob won't return.

Oscar Martinez

This is the best restaurant I have visited, I was returning from Florida vacation, I live in Massachusetts, I found the restaurant in Google and went with my family to eat and WOW the most authentic food of my country EL SALVADOR incredibly tasty, fast service and super friendly staff told the waitress to tell the owner to open a restaurant in Massachusetts because the taste of the food transports me to my country the super unique and authentic flavor and at an excellent prices as great. I had the pleasure to talk to the owner and she’s super humble and kind is amazing to find so much in one place; Now I found a comment from a lady Mimi G....WANTS TO LET HER IKNOW THAT I KNOW WHAT IT IS A REAL PUPUSA.. AND ALSO I WANT TO SAY THAT I AM NOT FRIEND OF THE OWNER AS SHE SAYS THAT FOR THIS REASON THIS PLACE HAS GOOD REVIEWS, it is not true it has good reviews because the food is authentic with a unique flavor! thanks for the service and for the authentic food wish to have you closer to Massachusetts:(

Hands down the best Papusas I have had yet, I have had better slaw and tomatoe sauce but never a better Papusa.

(Translated by Google) The food is rich in flavor The bad thing is that the waitress who attended to me was very busy and did not attend me well And the price of food a little expensive (Original) La comida es Rica en sabor Lo malo es que la mesera que me atendió estaba muy ocupada y no me atendió bien Y el precio de la comida un poquito cara

The best pupusas in Richmond. Love the empanadillas.

GREAT PUPUSAS at a GREAT VALUE!! PROS: -- This place is such a gem in Richmond. Their pupusas are only $1 each and they are BIG! Each pupusas also come with a generous serving of their signature tomato sauce and pickled cabbage, which is SO delicious. -- There is such a family vibe in that restaurant and they make you feel like you're part of the family too. -- They also serve home-made ice cream at a good price and they are DELICIOUS!!! CONS: -- the facilities are not the best, but it is clean and well-kept enough for you to have a great meal with your family/friends.

Bruce Cox

The real deal. Authentic delicious food. Kind humble people. Little ladies in the kitchen cooking homemade stuff. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

David Palacios

Very good

Paige Reisenfeld

This place is super cute, soooo delicious, and incredibly inexpensive! I ordered a cup of coffee, 2 pupusas (the cheese with loroco made with rice flour and the mix of pork, cheese, and beans made with cornmeal), 1 beef tongue taco, the sweet plantain canoe, and the banana and rice pie with milk cream and it came up to less than $10 (not including tip). The portions were ample and I left full and happy. Everything tasted wonderful - the cheese and loroco (green vine) was my favorite and I don’t know how to describe the taste; while I did not expect it, I loved it and the texture was amazing. The service was impeccable (the lady was so sweet) as well. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

La ultima vez que fui...las pupusas crudas...y parecían mas tortillas que pupusas...muy poco volvere a ir

Will Boland

Papusa doesn't mean "best $1.50 you could ever spend" but it should. Soft, gooey, and delicious guaranteed. Topped with house cabbage slaw and sauce if you know what you're doing. Try them all and throw in a taco al pastor. You won't be sorry.

Gypsy Luck

Food was ok not all that great. Honestly the cook is not all that here. The pupusas could be better in my opinion.


Las pupusas de este lugar son muy ricas.. Siempre frescas, y deliciosas.. Recomiendo este ligas para las pupusas, las revueltas, y las de frijoles con queso son mis favoritas.. Siento que el servicio podría mejorar un poco, también si mantuvieran el lugar un poco más limpio sería excelente.. Siempre ordenó para llevar por la limpieza de los pisos y las mesas, pero eso no es un obstáculo para comprar aquí ya que la comida está rica.. También miro que la dueña viene a inspeccionar el lugar así que eso habla bien de ella.. Recomiendo que prueben las pupusas!!

Jonathan Rodriguez

Tasty food good vibe and descent prices

meibol Kushiyama

Graciela Rosales

las pupusas son increíbles las mejores que e probado. de verdad lástima el servicio hemos regresado sólo porque las pupusas son buenas pero la atención al cliente es terrible los empleados no dejan una buena impresión de lo amable que somos los latinos, nadie saluda, ni dan las gracias, no ofrecen nada extra su pupuseria sería la mejor si su p personal se tomara enserio su trabajo usted está perdiendo muchos clientes por ellos

Oscar Larrave

(Translated by Google) Excellent everything very well. Only that it is better and more top-notch that the work staff works in silence. Because suddenly a scream between them does not look good. If so, they will have 2 Hispanic and American markets. But the excellent food is delicious. (Original) Excelente todo muy bien. Solo que es mejor y de más categoría que el personal de trabajo trabaje en silencio. Por que de repente un grito entre ellos no se ve lo ade así van a tener 2 mercados hispano y americano.

Delicious pupusas for only $1.50 each! We got four (loroco, beans, zucchini, and mixed), plus an order of their fried yucca and pork, all for $13. More than enough to feed two, and all fantastic.
