The atmosphere was basic, but the food was superb, especially for the price, and the patron was quick and cordial with his service. I plan to go back!

Some of the food was a bit to oily. The Chili Rellnos needed to have been drained and patted to absorb some of the grease it was fried in.

I think they should hire a student form across the street (FSU Art Dept) to work the lunch hour that speaks both Spanish and English.

From Our Editors

In the kitchen of the pumpkin-orange eatery that formerly held Mexican restaurant El Ranchito, El Viroleño's cooks prepare Central American cuisine with ingredients gathered from local markets and farms. They fry yucca, wrap enchiladas in house-made tortillas, and craft pupusas, a Salvadoran dish that consists of thick, handmade tortillas stuffed with various ingredients and topped with pickled cabbage and salsa. Those pupusas have already won fans at nearby Florida State University—one FSView writer called them "the perfect food for munching, late night snacking or, well, curing the morning ailments of those slightly over-indulgent late nights."
