People were very nice. Food was so bad that none of us could eat it. It was dry and tasteless. The store front was tiny, lacked atmosphere and was not kept up. Very disappointing.

Staying nearby and found this place via Yelp. Gourmet cuisine it isn't, but we enjoyed the good simple Mexican/Salvadorian fare. Make sure to try the speciality of the house, the pupusas.

Fabulous food, warm friendly staff. This is the place we think of first when we want a good meal in a pleasant atmosphere. And it's comfort food. Everything is great but their masa (corn products) are outstanding.

I've lived in Woodland for many years and this is the best latin food I've had. Great pupusas, camarones al mojo de diablo, chile rellenos & tortas. The place is a dive. We typically order by phone for take out & give them about 20 minutes to prepare. If you want great tasting food, it's worth overlooking the crummy exterior.

The food and variety is great. A wide ranging menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a straight taqueria form. Plus Salvadorian pupusas like empanadas. Small, quick in and out. On a moderate evening you might choose to tarry on the patio. But those are less common in Woodland: 96 degrees right now. Limited seating as others have noted.

Out of the many mexican type taquerias, etc. in Woodland, this one is a great hole in the wall place with great food and very reasonable prices. I work in Woodland and have been going here primarily for lunch over many years and the food is consistently good. They give you a complimentary plate of chips and beans after you... More

Great food!! Atmosphere & service yuck! I have been there many times and have never been disappointed with the food. It's great food, but there is never a place to sit. The seating consist of five small tables crowded in a very small area with a few flys buzzing around. That and the service at times is the draw back.... More
