great tasting food from the central America.
this restaurant makes one of the best pupusas around. the waiters/waitresses are very polite and try their best to explain and suggest different types of food, if you are a newcomer. one of my favorite dishes is the chicken soup, with veggies.. it evens comes with fried chicken on the side! it was very tasty and for dessert i had the empanadas this is like fried banana balls stuffed with sweet milk. over all good food & service.
Good Food, Excellent Prices!.
i went to this restaurant last friday, and i was a little skeptical... but to my surprise it was better than what i expected. i had to idea what to choose so i decided to try a little of everything. The Pupusas are the best! crunchy, yet flavorful.. a must try! good appetizer. i also tried one of the foods from Guatemala (Chicken Pepian) and it was out of this world... excuse my excitement but this is one of those restaurants that you go to more than once..
i hope this helps all you food explorers out all there! : )
Well let me tell you that I put a to go order today. 2nd time going to this place but my friend loves it so I figured..sure why not. I personally telephoned the call in for an order of Carne Asada and ONE order of pusas. We got the paid, my friend figured that prices had gone up but we go to work and guess what. The gal that took the order messed up..Well I graciously called the gal back letting her know of the mix up.
She was very rude,interupted me all while I was trying to explain my side of things. And she said " I'm sorry but you said you wanted two orders." I said" yes two order: one or carne asada and the other of pususas" she said " well there's nothing I can do if you didn't know how to order.." wow! really.. I explained that I could not return the extra order right now because we has just returned from work and lunch was over..
What I wanted her to see is that regardless of who's mistake was it, she was being completly rude, did not want to give any credit what so ever and blamming me...the customer for make the wrong order. She then said " we have a system where when you order we have you on a recording".....REALLY!! I explained politely I did not want to argue with her but wanted her to see my point..She cut me off and said well I dont have time to argue with you..If you dont want the food, come and return it and I will give you back your money
Not customer friendly..not to mention her comment of the recording..If you call your order in be aware that your conversation with them may be recorded..whether or not this is true..who really knows. The bad thing is that this lady is the owner's daughter...
NEVER again will I personally go to this place to spend my hard earned money..they don't deserve it.
Don't let the low prices fool you--. this place has excellent quality Mexican food at very low prices. It's also the sort of place where, if you go more than once, the workers know you. I highly recommend the flan for dessert, too!
