  • White people sure do love this place!
  • The a la carte pupusas are yummy and cheap!
  • Nice, small Mexican/Salvadorean food. Go here when Lauriol Plaza is too busy. 1/2 pitcher of margaritas only adds to the yumminess.
  • Some of the best service in the city. People are so nice here!
  • Don't order a drink if anyone in your party doesn't have an id. They'll take your drinks away from you halfway through the meal.
  • Fresssh margaritas!!! No bs machine premade mix :)
  • Best El Salvadorian food you can get in DC. The pupusas are amazing!
  • Best Pupusas ever!!!!
  • Sopa de res
  • Best pupusas In the DC area!
  • Get the breakfast burrito with bacon. So ridiculous.
  • suspended by health dept for 7 violations including raw beef stored at 68 degrees and no one trained and certified in food safety. passed reinspection. watch wusa9 for story.
  • Not authentic. Everything tastes and looks prepackaged. The hole-in-the-wall Super Taco on Columbia Rd is still #1.
  • Esperando por Pedro porque en el Dahlak no hay nadie...
  • The pickled slaw that comes with the pupusas is to die for. I would eat it in buckets if I could.
  • Good fajitas for 2
  • The best chips & guacamole in DC
  • Delicious pupusas, but order them separately... their brunch menu version seemed smaller and the sides were only ok.
  • Service wasnt great. But margaritas were delicious!
  • Outstanding papusas. Loved the cafe de olla. Good drinks, do the mango mule. Everything made fresh and tasty.
