We come here (more than once!) every time we visit SP. The papusas are the best in town! Not only is the food delicious and reasonably priced, the hospitality is as well. We always feel welcome.

They plenty of variety and you're able to mix up to 3 fillings. They are prepped and cooked right in front of the restaurant. The cabbage... More

My family stopped to try Papusas. The lady making them on the grill outside was really nice! She explained what they were and recommended which one to order. So, we ordered the Mixed Papusas. It had beans, cheese and pork. It was really tasty. Would have preferred more pork, but still good. They were busy and the man server seemed... More

We picked up Papusas to go. Took about 20'. They came with all the trimmings and sauces. However, I have had better papusas in California!

If you want great local food, you like lobster, and you don't want to spend a lot of money - the lobster burrito here is the BEST!! It is always our first and last meal when we come to San Pedro. And one burrito easily serves 2 people - for a total of $13.00 US!! We highly recommend it😊

We stopped by on Boxing Day for a quick lunch and waited 50 minutes for our food. But I'm getting ahead of myself. First, half of the menu was not available. No pupusa because "the lady" wasn't there. Never mind that the table next to us ordered them at the end of our meal. Did she just take off from... More
