The menu has several Mexican type dishes to satisfy general expectations. The Salvadoran pupusas and Horchata are great offerings that you don't see in many other restaurants.

Absolutely love this place! Amazing fresh flavours, accommodating hosts and fair prices! Will make your food vegan upon request. I am a huge fan of the veggie tacos, nachos and the guac made fresh to order. Arrive hungry. Leave blissed.

Been here more than 10 times. And without fail have had awesome delicious food.

The chimmie change is almost staple diet but tried their other dishes too and same result. A great meal.

The seating is sparse at said in a prior comment. But let me put it this way. I have been to the Mill and had a disastrous meal, sticking to high heaven from their chimney that does not draw. Yes the seating is more comfortable, but my wallet emptied and not a good time.

I'm new to the area and had just seen this place while driving by. I'm so glad we went! Delicious! We ordered a pork cheese bean puposa. Loved it! And the beef nachos. Yum! And the beef gorditas. Amazing! Loved every morsel. So refreshing to find a place that isn't "tex mex".... Will be back for sure.

This is a well maintained Latin restaurant. The owners are actually Salvadorian. The interior is very clean and leaning on sparse. The only thing that leads you to know it is Latin is the music they were playing and the menu. The staff was pleasant and helpful in making selections. There were two other families in the restaurant besides us and they were from a Latin based country as well which is always a good sign. However, the wait for the food did take almost 25 minutes. I had the Gorditas and my husband enjoyed the Chimichanga. Both were very good. Some of the best beans I have ever eaten. We also ordered a pork & bean Pupusa in Pork & cheese to split just to try. It was so tasty I may just order those next time in a few flavours. It is true what the saying is 'good things take time", so the wait for the food was worth it as it was fresh and oh so tasty.
