"The pupusas are so good. .Been here a few times and El Tequilense is definitely my go to pupusas place. They offer free chips and salsa so points for that. Personally not a big fan of Salvadoran tamales, but I like how they make them here. Service is good; love that it's family owned and you can tell they take pride in their restaurant".

"I pass this restaurant almost every day and never knew it existed. My boy friend was craving pupusas one day, and who can say no to pupusas right?? He took me to this restaurant since I had never been before. I love their pupusas revueltas {cheese, beans and pork) and their cheese pupusas. Total bomb!. It is hard to find a restaurant with great pupusas so El Tequilense will definitely be on my "go to" list.".

"Love this place. Been coming here for years and I still can't get over the flavor. Enchiladas de Pollo are my favorite, and the rice is never dry. The owner is super sweet; always glad to come back here.
