Go to this place for the lunch specials. Pupusas are great. Food is overpriced otherwise. And avoid the margaritas.

Behind the 7-11 just off the Columbia Pike, this is another great little stop for pupusas in Arlington. Inexpensive platters for lunch with quick service, I always enjoy eating here. Some of the best tamales I've tasted, very smooth almost like a sweet corn soufflé....More

We've been going to Abi's for 20+ years and love the restaurant. They have a fantastic weekday happy hour til 7:00pm with discounted margaritas which are fantastic. They don't taste like they are made with a mix and very generous sized glasses. The pupusas are...More

For latino food, this is the place to go. Had the steak/shrimp(2)/scallop(2) meal. Came with an assortment of peppers/tomato/onion cooked with the scallop/shrimp. I think the pepper was soaked in a salsa (or some other spice) that was very tasty. Waiter service was excellent. Only...More

I just have to say that this is a low-key kinda place that serves well prepared authentic food, if you feel the need to dress up fancy and spend large amounts of cash to impress your date just pass by this. If you really want...More

Abi's has been our favorite local spot for the last few years. The place is certainly no frills, but welcoming and authentic. My husband is Salvadorean and definitely picky when it comes to pupusas (no one makes them better then his mom). He loves this...More
