I ate pupusas from Buen Gusto twice in one week. I enjoyed every flavor I sampled (bean and cheese, chicken and zucchini,nd pork and cheese) and can honestly say that these live up to or exceed the pupusas the good flavor of the many pupusas...More

Agree with the other reviews that the food is very good and the service is mediocre. But, be honest, isn't that better than the reverse? And the prices are very reasonable. I'd definitely recommend coming here if you're passing through Perry, whether on the bike...More

We've stopped here many times now and plan our bike trips to get lunch here. Awesome. Papuans are terrific, and ONLY $1.50 apiece. I love the Carnitas too. But everything we get is great. Not fast food, but fresh food.
