    Among all of the new establishments on 8th, don't forget about this old favorite. Have the Sopa de Tortilla and a top-shelf margarita.

    Love their vegetarian platter. Staff is nice & recognizes frequent guests. Happy this place has made it as the street has classed itself up.

    Food blogger Life in Pink says their Eastern Market has amazing food, great Margaritas, perfect ambience, and the staff is always friendly. It’s pretty affordable, too!

    If you have never had a pupusa, try one (and add the cabbage, called Cutado). Pupusas are the new burrito

    You must try the Puerco al horno (oven-baked pork) because it's amazingly good.

    Their service is awful!! Had to flag them down for the check and drinks. Never bothering to come here again. Their margaritas are nothing special.
