We were lucky to get there right before the dinner crowd because while we had to wait 10 minutes for a spot, the wait was much longer by the time we left - and with good reason! Pupusas are made fresh right on the street...More

It is a very casual spot, fantastic pupusas! My husband and I ate there for lunch and brought back a sack of pupusa’s for the 4 teens/20 somethings back at our hotel. Drinks were good as well, we had margaritas:)

Watching the owner slap together aromatic pupusas right on the store front curb with the freshest of ingredients all around her, then sitting down with your choices served to you was unBELIZEable! The Panty Rippa was the best choice to wash it down with!

If you’re in Belize you have to stop here for a Pupusa. The first time we passes by it was closed and the 2nd time it was closing but they were really nice and told us to come the next day. When we got there...More

Great little place. Owner told us they'd started over 20 years ago, with just one little tiny portion of today's site. Over time, with a lot of hard work, they've gradually expanded. Now have several seating areas, a bar, and it's open to the street....More
