the meal started with a bowl of crispy tortilla chips and red and green salsas. I sampled a tinga taco, revueltas papusa with pickled cabbage relish, chicken enchilada, beans, and rice. Everything was delicious

On a recent stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in North Charlottesville, we wanted a good Friday night dinner without going downtown. El Tepeyac, a small Mexican/Salvadoran place in a nearby strip center, filled the bill. If you want something different from Tex-Mex, give...More

I seldom find places this good. Ate a light lunch, had a pupusa (frijoles) and a Torta Tinga (chicken and chipotle sauce), and Mexican soda along with the great chips and sauces brought to the table. I think the bill was under $6. I will...More

What started out as a few seats in the back of a densely packed bodega has morphed into a sit down restaurant with a bar. Having stumbled into it during its first incarnation to purchase some local tortillas and chorizo, I spied the seats in...More

I tried 3 items on the backside of the menu - Pupusas, Gorditas & Sopias(?) with various fillings -all most likely Salvadoran. All 3 were very bland and unusual tasting; all served in very thick (seemed to be made there at the restaurant) tortillas. The...More

I confess to being disappointed after reading all the reviews about "authentic mexican". While the menu had all the right items, the preparation was more tex-mex than authentic in my opinion. Using corn rather than flour tortillas doesn't constitute "authentic mexican". I had the relleno...More
