“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

The main reason we went to Pupuseria was due to a recommendation for local fair. We were not disaapointed as the food, service and owners exceeded expectations.
Excellent value for our money as the food, drinks were plentiful and did not break the bank.

“Awesome burrito, great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

I stumbled upon this restaurant on my first visit to Ambergris Caye. I went back on my second trip to San Pedro because they have excellent food at a reasonable price. The smothered burrito is huge and will fill you up. I also tried a pupusa which you can watch being made on the grill in front and it was very good also. The staff is always friendly and the service is quick. I will definitely go back on my next trip to San Pedro.

“We ate there almost every day - enough said!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We discovered the Pupuseria on a previous trip to Ambergris Caye, and loved their pupusas and burritos (mmmmm, HUGE lobster burrito). We were so happy to see they were still going strong on this visit. We ate there or picked up carry-out five of the six days we were in San Pedro, and my granddaughter got at least one banana milkshake everyday - she consumed a total of 12 shakes during our trip ( and don't worry, they're not the calorie-filled, artificial, corn syruppy junk we get at U.S. fast-food joints). In addition to the pupusas and burritos, we enjoyed the stewed chicken, pork chop, fajitas, ceviche, and the great sides.
The prices are extremely reasonable and the portions are good (and burrito's are huge!) You just can't go wrong eating here.

“Lobster Burrito is a MUST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We were introduced to this place by the owner of our guesthouse who gave us a great tour of the Caye. He recommended the lobster burrito, and when we finally had it for lunch we were SO impressed! My husband and I split the burrito and were very full. It's packed with lobster and then TOPPED with a lobster tail. So good! We also went for dinner on a Saturday night after walking around town for a bit. We were drawn in by the pupusas being served right off the grill in the street! We ordered one round of pupusas...and then another. So, so good. Great to sit and watch the world go by out on Middle Street! Definitely go!
