    The Pechuga de Pollo a la Parrilla con Huevo y Chorizo is perfect for dinner or brunch! A sizeable serving of grilled boneless chicken breast with two eggs, Salvadorean sausage, and pico de gallo.

    Start your meal off with the hearty Yuca con Chicharrón - fried yuca topped with cabbage, onions, carrots, and pico de gallo along with fried pork.

    Cheap and yummy! Beans and rice left something to be desired, but you can't beat the price tag. $8 for all this food.

    The pupusas are a great snack, but you can't go wrong with the tacos.

    Some goods friends stopped coming here because they saw a roach on the wall. Every restaurant in DC deals with these - right? Like this tip if you think they should come back.

    Among the house specialities are well-seasoned steaks that come plain or with a variety of dressings—the carne de salpicón has an eye-watering, chili-laced topping.
