El Aguila Restaurant Review

: This little mini-mall restaurant offers basically Tex-Mex eats, but you can see its heart lies with El Salvador: Salvador prints and beers predominate. The owner must be a soccer fan, for part of the restaurant logo is soccer balls. We like the courteous service as much as the Santa Fe burrito filled with beef rolled in a flour tortilla and topped with enchilada sauce. The chile relleno also is good. For a taste change, try the pupusas in their thick cornmeal wrap or fried plantains with cream and beans. You can have a seated meal or do take-out for a burrito or taco on the run.
