One of my favorite quick and easy places to get food. The papusas are cheap and filling, and paired with the provided tomato sauce and a little bit of salt, they're the perfect lunch/dinner/afternoon snack. They start at 2.50BZ each, and are a bit larger than the palm of a hand. The service is always good, and the staff speaks both English and Spanish, and the food is prepared to order, but is always quickly made. Everything they have is delicious and during lobster season they have specialties that feature it. Definitely a place to stop if you want a cheap/easy/quick meal. The price is great, and the taste is amazing.

The pupusas are really good. But the service can be taken up a notch.
The waiters really don't seem to care about the service they provide, and can be very rude!
We witnessed a waiter being rude to a customer, definitely not good for other visitors.

We get Salvadorean pupusas at home all the time, but these were fresh, filled with lobster and just generally awesome. Fun place to watch the World Cup as well.

My family and I loved Pupuseria Salvadoreno. We've had many pupusas in the US and elsewhere, but these were among the best - especially the lobster pupusas! We especially liked the fresh pickled cabbage and hot sauce that came with the pupusas. As in many places in Belize, the service was incredibly friendly.

We had a wonderful dinner here. They offer many different kinds of pupusas as appetizers but you can make a meal of them. (A pupusa is thick corn tortilla stuffed with a savory filling.) At the table, there were various condiments including a type of latin sauerkraut, sweet tomato sauce, and a very spicy green sauce that made the pupusas taste even better.

The cocktails were not great, but that was not why went there anyway. It is an open air restaurant (no A/C) but the fans and breezes made it comfortable. We walked away with full bellies for less that US$30. (They don't take credit cards so bring cash.)

A meal at this place is a must for any visit to San Pedro!
