Reviews for Pupuseria Dona Azucena

I really love this restaurant and here's why: 1) the food is delicious 2) the ambiance is intimate and feels like a little hole-in-the-wall place in rural Latin America 3) there's always tables full of Latino families, so you know it's a legit place 4) you can't beat the prices; you can walk away full for less than $10 easy.

Dona Azucena's pupusas are magical. Well seasoned, generously filled, pure joy. That's all I have to say. But I am not here to talk about pupusas because I found the BEST TAMALES ever. Seriously!

The papusas here are amazing! The one tricky thing is it’s very hard to find parking in this area. The food also took a while to prepare but it was worth it.
