Having lived in El Salvador briefly as a child I can attest to the fact that the pupusas and tamales here are LEGIT salvadoreño (even if they don’t have the red sauce for the pupusas, I still came back for a second visit). My boyfriend...More

Our family enjoyed eating at Tlaloc over the weekend. The food was so freshly made and seemingly very authentic. Such a variety to choose from. We loved the coziness and relaxed atmosphere there. Great service and LOTS of food!

Not your typical gringo TexMex joint. Family owned and run with a marvelous menu ranging from traditional Mexican to Salvadoran. All food freshly prepared from scratch, including the best homemade tortillas I've had in the lower 48. Friendly service and popular place. Go there.

It becomes my favorite place to try different Central and South America cousine. The staff speaks Spanish and English and is very friendly, caring and authentic. The food is delicious for meat veggie and fish lovers, and very affordable. I will be a regular visitor.

I am always in the hunt for a great mexican food place akin to what I'm used to in Texas. This is a small place and is crowded, that's when you know it's good. They have an amazing assortment of dishes to whet your appetite....More
