Having only tried one other El Salvador restaurant, I was excited when my son suggested this place. Yes it is an old building and nothing fancy, but it was clean and the food was amazing. Very filling and good homemade cooking! My son warned of the wait time, but we went at lunch time. It was quite busy but we... More

Traditional Salvadorean dishes served in a small but inviting restaurant. This is right down the street from my job, and I don't eat here as often as I should. Good service and great food.

We felt as if we were invisible while waiting for service. Ordered..server was not knowledgeable about any of the entrees...then waited for a very long time while our server ate food behind the counter with her fingers. We had ordered an appetizer but she brought our main course and said they were so busy with other orders they didn't have... More

This place is definitely a hole in the wall, but those are the spots that seem to have the best food. You can see the ladies in the kitchen hard at work, and it definitely looks clean (for what you can see). The servers all speak English, and the menu is in English and Spanish both. The papusa's are excellent... More

Google Maps thinks the name of this place is: Restaurant Salvadoreno El Pulgarcito. I ate there today and the specials were chicken and rice for $6.95 and shrimp tostadas for $3.75 each. I had one of the tostadas and it was very, very tasty. It was about 4 to 4½” across. I also had one pork and one cheese and... More

After seeing the great reviews for this restaurant, hubby and I were excited to try it. We didn't really know what to expect for El Salvador cuisine. Our first impression was that the place was dirty. The floors hadn't been cleaned in ages. We could tell it was a family-run restaurant (which we love!) but that's where the positive aspects...

This is not Mexican spices or dishes. A bit farther south than that, thankyou very much. Meaty, flavorful, and more than enough to fill you up. It may not be exactly what is eaten in El Savador, but it is Mamma's home cooking here in the USA. Try it!

This is a great authentic restaurant. It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside but the food is excellent and the staff makes you feel right at home. The type of food is Mexican/El Salvador and is very good and great value. If you're looking for the hidden gem with great food and unique experience, this is... More

Not many places near Kansas City to eat food from El Salvador. The setting is not much to look at - old 70s diner decor - but the food is very interesting. Half from El Salvador - half from Mexico (with a twist) Puposas are a specialty - a pancake looking flat pastry filled with choice of meats or vegetables.... More
