Amazing food!! We were there during lobster season and got the lobster burritos plus a selection of papusas and civiche. Great prices, relaxed atmosphere! We went back for a second meal during our five day visit.

We come here (more than once!) every time we visit SP. The papusas are the best in town! Not only is the food delicious and reasonably priced, the hospitality is as well. We always feel welcome.

My family stopped to try Papusas. The lady making them on the grill outside was really nice! She explained what they were and recommended which one to order. So, we ordered the Mixed Papusas.

We picked up Papusas to go. Took about 20'. They came with all the trimmings and sauces. However, I have had better papusas in California!

If you want great local food, you like lobster, and you don't want to spend a lot of money - the lobster burrito here is the BEST!! It is always our first and last meal when we come to San Pedro. And one burrito easily serves 2 people - for a total of $13.00 US!! We highly recommend it😊
