I went with a friend because we wanted to try something different than the usual standbys. Was not disappointed. It's in an old gas station, the dining room was small, and it was packed for lunch on a Saturday. It's not setup the greatest so...More

I stopped in here yesterday for dinner, and it was SO good! I wanted to try several things, and they were all fairly inexpensive. The plantains were spot on, and the cream to go with them was super light. The jalapeño cheese pupusa had the...More
