All we can say about this place is yum: servings are huge, ingredients fresh, and everything tastes fantastic. The only issue - service could be friendlier; It seems like it would take a magic trick to make the waiters smile.While the menu offers both Mexican and Salvadoran items, the latter dominates. Order typical appetizers such as pupusas ($2.75), corn tortillas stuffed like a pita bread with your choice of cheese, chicken, zucchini, or most common among Salvadorans, revuelto — a mixture of cheese, beans, and chicharron. The super antojitos sampler ($13.99) is a great choice of appetizer for a group, bringing loads of bite-sized pieces of fried cheese, steak, pork, fried yucca, and tortilla chips topped with fresh melted cheese. You won't go wrong with a plato fuerte (main entrée) of parrillada ($18.99 for one person and $28.99 for two), a combination platter which brings steak, chicken, pork chops, and sausage. Try the cebollitas picantes, a tangy, delicious mixture of marinated onions, carrots, and jalapeños that Salvadorans eat with their food. Every bite sings in your mouth.
