Great Salvadoran Food (The Best!) 12/20/2008

I came to Los Angeles to visit for a few days and discovered Atlacatl Salvadorean Restaurant. Got there on a Saturday around noon. There was a good crowd of people but we got sitted immediately. The server was great and attentive to our needs. We ordered Pupusas which were fantastic. (Very large too!). Also ordered Yuca Frita con Chicharron, it was the best Fried Yuca I've ever tasted, reason enough to go back next time I come to L.A. The drink ""Horchata"" was delicious, very much like the one they make in El Salvador.\r I give this restaurant my thumbs-up. Pros: Great food, good service. more

Best Pupusas in LA. 8/29/2008

This place is awesome. The area is Kinda bad, but there is probably no other place i would rather eat at for Salvadorean Food. I'm a Latina Born and raised in LA and Next to eating in my Father's Country (El Salvador) There's no other place like this one. Ive had some really good food here in LA but really picky about Central american Food given my Family Background (i was spoiled with good home cooked meals by abuelita lol) So yeah, everything on the menu is delicious. I now and then crave pupusas and some frijoles negros con crema y queso (black beans with salvi cream and cheese) and this is where you can find it. just make sure you dont go on sundays after church time or lunch. Because it gets really crowded. Pros: Next to Eating in El salvador.. Next best thing.... Cons: Like Some other really good restaurants.. it's in the Rampart area but ... its Worth it more

TASTE GRANDMA' FOOD 3/24/2008

I have been going to Atlacatl Restaurant for over 10 years already and still taste like grandma's food.. this restaurant is perfect for any occasion and cheap for those who don't to spend too much money on food.. so if you want to impress your friends or girlfriend I will recomended to you because is autentic salvadorian food. Over all don't forget your cash, because they don't accept credict card.. my only concern is the restroom, it need to be improved other than that is a excellent restaurant serving all those celestial dishes tasting like grandma's food.... HAVE FUN AND ENJOY EATING THERE. Pros: thumbs up Cons: don't forget your cash.. because no credit card accepted more

Best Salvadorian food outside of El Salvador. 2/11/2008

If you want to show some one what Salvadorian cuisine is all about, this is the place to go. The service is always friendly and prompt. The pupusas are made fresh with the best cheese and ingredients that will make your mother jealous! The portions are very generous. They offer a good variety of authentic Salvadorian food and drinks, my only complaint would have to be the location and the parking. Both won't keep me from coming back! Don't forget your cash! ""A mi me gustan las pupusas...!"" Pros: Great Salvadorian food, Pupusas, Price, Service Cons: No parking, don't except credit cards, must pay for music more

Classy...Tasty...what else could you ask for! 9/11/2007

absolutely amazing.............this place has some bomb pupusas........I've tried a variety of their foods and have always been very satisfied. I love going there. Pros: tasty food, very authentic, great prices Cons: parking is a little hard during the weekends. more

Instant gratification! 8/11/2007

This place has a classy salvadorian feel to it. Some celebrities have eaten at this restaurant like Don Omar. I traveled to El Salvador a few months ago and had some pupusas there. Quite tasty. I heard about this place in El Salvador, that's how famous it is.I decided to travel to Los Angeles one day when i was craving the pupusas and the Pan con Pavo. Instant Gratification. It was sooo delicious. I eat there every week to try all their different food but I definitely go back for the pupusas. I recommend this restaurant to everyone who would like to try something new and tasty. Pros: satisfied taste buds and classy ambiance. Cons: parking and sometimes you need to wait in line...but the wait is worth it. more

atol xuco 3/15/2007

la verdad mara, la mejor comida salvadorena no esta en este lugar, pero la verdad es quizas el unico lugar donde no me da pena llevar a mis amigos extrangeros que quieren comer verdadera salvadorena. la verdad no recomendaria los ba?os, son un asco. una vez le dije a la mesera que los mandara a limpiar pero ella se enojo en lugar de hacerme caso. \r \r el lugar es explendido. la comida rica..... lo recomiendo bastante, solo que no inviten a sus amigos a pasar al ba?o. \r .........\r \r \r parkeo gratis\r Pros: comida barata Cons: la limpieza del bano more

Pretty damn good pupusas! 1/23/2007

I've eaten here 4 times already and I love it. The pupusas are delicious - mmm the cheese is good. I get the ones with meat and cheese, and the ones with loroco are really good. Great ambiance - it feels really family friendly. The hosts and waitresses are nice too. I brought some pupusas home and my friends ate them all. Mmm cheesy... Pros: Great pupusas, get the loroco Cons: The weekends get packed more

One of the best 5/25/2004

This restaurant has by far some of the best pupusas in all of L.A.! Not only are they HUGE, but really really good. Queso con Loroco are awesome. I would recommend it to anyone looking for great food at a very low cost. more

Authentic 9/14/2003

I am a salvadorean and this place is very authentic. I am not realy a big fan of many of the salvadorean restaurants in the area as the food is not what I am used to. This place has a very good dishes served at reasonabkle prices and good portions. They are always very busy. For first timers I recomend ""sopa de res"" beef soup, perch in tomato sauce if you want fish, ""pan con pavo"" for a juicy turkey sandwich or the go-to favorites ""tamales de poyo or elote"" and of course ""pupusasa de queso con loroco"" or any other combo. This place is good and is highly recomended. Pros: Great Value, Authentic food, Good Variety Cons: Lack of Parking, Long waits a peak hrs more
