No frills here just great pupusas. I love the slaw they give you to put on top of the pupusas. I at least have to have 2 pupusas to fill me up.

Our group of 13 had dinner here. Most people had two pupusas each; I had four and loved them. Pupusas are all that they serve. There are about 15 kinds to get. At 10 Q per pupusas, they are cheap and filling.

Right, so by far this is the best value and some would argue tasting meal you can get in Panajachel. Papusas (Q.10 - $1.20) for those who don't know are Salvadorian and the owners are from El Salvador so they are the real deal. My...More
