Pupusas are so freaking good and their shrimp soup as well and the burritos! The Chicken Fries could definitely use more cheese though, but overall, freaking good food!

La Bamba remains delicious, Covid be damned. The Pupusas Revuelta was tender, juicy, handmade....perfect. Never gets old. The pickled cabbage, pickled to perfection. The salsa....a nice kick but not overbearing, not gonna overpower the pupusa, and provides a nice little bit of heat. I doubt I’ll ever get tired of this place.

OMG yall need to try this place. The food here is fucking amazing. Everything was well seasoned. This place is now in my top 3 favorite Salvadoran spots. I got a super chichen burrito(fire), bean and cheese pupusas, chicken tamales, plantains and rice. Everything was amazing;I can't wait to go back there. I'm so happy I got extra food because now I have food for tomorrow. THIS IS A MUST TRY. REMEMBER TO SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES.

This spot is a little hole in the wall on San Pablo Ave. in Richmond. During the pandemic they are open for takeout only, no dining room. The food is very good, very tasty, fresh El SalvadorianDishes cooked from scratch. The pupusas alone are worth driving over there from Oakland. The prices are great, this is a good value for the money. must try

Good food, cheap. Love the papusas in particular and they have one of the beat breakfast burritos in the bay area.

I bought two meat super burritos, the staff was very friendly & super fast, the problem was they had dumped so much salt in the carne asada I could feel small salt particles! It thought I could handle it, but ended up throwing away two burritos :( It sucked because I was so hungry.

I had to give them 3 stars but felt like it was 3.5. The food had nice flavor, but after wait long 25mins for our food I noticed they were microwaving our food which was really dishearting after I waiting so long for our food to go to that low when I can do this at home for cheaper.

Mad at myself for not coming here sooner food. Family feel and the food is good what more do I need to say? Well one more good useful tip call ahead to order your food. They are always busy. My personal favorites are the stake quesadilla and the cheese papusa

Excellent pupusas! Had a job a block away for almost a year. Got a recommendation from a coworker who lives in the neighborhood, and boy was he correct! I dream about them at least once a week! And I'll be a repeat customer whenever I'm back in the area.

Unfortunately didn't get to try the food. I had to just walk away the service was so poor and the woman I was speaking with was so short with me and rude. Like my presence was bothering her. Won't be returning.
