Reviews for La Esperanza Restaurant

Since the 1st time I set foot into this restaurant and has been a godsend nowhere have I been able to find a good place where they make such great food thank you for having such great experience cooks you guys have been the most enjoyable watermelon salvadorians restaurant I have ever been to

I absolutely love this place I've been coming here for years. Food is delicious. And the lady employees are awesome. I came in with family, wanting to try the new passion fruit margarita. My complaint is that I'm a forty year old woman and I STILL got carded. I had actually forgot my ID and my purse at home and the man refused to sell to me. I mean I understand policies but cmon?? Carding a 40 year old woman?? And like I said I'm a regular at this establishment. full review
This place was delicious! Cute little setting, connected with their own bakery. Went for breakfast at about 11am. We were the only other people there besides about 4 people. We were greeted by the waitress and asked to choose are seats. They have a pretty large menu with lots of options. I ordered a pupusa combo plate which included two pupusas, rice and beans. Each came with one ingredient of your choice, cheese already included, any additional ingredient was .50, not bad. full review
