Fantastic food and wonderful service. I ordered the Jerk Tofu in BBQ sauce with rice and peas and plantains for the sides. This was the best tofu dish I have ever eaten because of the homemade BBQ sauce. The sauce has a bit of heat and went well with the rice. Their ginger and pineapple juice mixed with the limeade was also very good.

This is by far the best restaurant in Tucson. Everything is fresh and made to order. Had the curry shrimp with rice and beans and a side of coleslaw. Full of flavors. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for Caribbean or vegan food in Tucson. Plenty of options and also great island deserts! And before I go, great customer service there!!!✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Little hole in the wall was an absolute GEM! Made to order food, looked small but was surprisingly filling. Good prices, fresh made to order Papusas we’re fantastic!

First time trying pupusas and I am speechless, absolutely phenomenal. Definitely going to become a take out staple. The empanadas have a wonderful flavor as well. You can really taste the quality of the ingredients and the preparation. Totally in love

Great food made by people who care! It's nice to see a restaurant that's doing its own thing — no carbon-copy menus here. The food is delicious and has the feel that it was cooked by a team who takes pride in what they're serving. The tamales, arroz con pollo, tostones, and sweet plantains were all great, and I could eat pupusas every day of the week. All the items were well-packaged and had extra touches included, with sauces, slaw, and veggies. Quick delivery too. Looking forward to ordering from Selena's again soon!

I've been coming here since they opened, the food is always soo delicious. I frequently do take out and I never know what to order so I tend to get food for 2 days. They have so many delicious options, you can't go wrong with what you order. When I want really good food, I come here because it never disappoints!

Ordered a bundle of 3 pupusas for $10. Ruvuelta (pork & beans), chicharrones (pork), and chicken. All 3 were flavorful, though I liked the pork ones a bit more than the chicken one. Also had chips with salsa, which looked like tostitos.

Great taste from El Salvador. This food is excellent! If you are hungry (Or a large group) and want to try a variety of Salvadoran food all at once, try the “mi jente.” This will get you chicken, pork, beef and shrimp on your menu. It comes in 2 plates! Sorry I forgot to take a picture. For dessert we had the flan and it’s scrumptious. Not too sweet and very flavorful. If you’re looking for popusas this is your place. They are huge and full of flavor. This place is small so plan your visit accordingly or you’ll be begging a long line. They do take out. Axel was our server and he’s great!!! Highly recommend this place.

Got takeout with my little sister, all the pupusas flavors were delicious! The curtido with them was the perfect accompaniment and the platanos we also got were well fried and so, so tasty.

Absolutely incredible. Not only is the food perfect but the service is phenomenal. Everyone is incredible friendly. It's a cute little restaurant near U of A. I ordered the 'regular size' pupusas, WOW! far from regular size. They're huge and very well filled. Will order the large next time just to see how gigantic those are. You must try the tamales, the best I've ever had. The window says "Best Pupusas in Tucson" but I honestly feel they're easily the best in all of AZ. This place is an absolute must try!
