About latin food

Coming from Chicago, my girlfriend and I were craving some popusas. They were made very good! But I do have to say their Caldo De Res is by far one of the better ones I have tried. Definitely would come again.

You can tell they use high-quality, fresh ingredients because their food is superb. Everything is so reasonably priced. Great value and delicious flavor!

Our first time here .... 'cause, yes, there are plenty of other Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Latin / Central American restaurants on Cary Street and Main Street in The Fan - so it took us a while to try El Pope. What a pleasant surprise!!! From the outside, it is a very unassuming place. Once inside, the friendly staff, cleanliness, and Latin music quietly playing in the background just made us know we would enjoy our lunch. The food, most importantly, did not disappoint. I tried three different street tacos - adobo chicken, pork al pastor, and carnitas - to get a sampling of their cooking. They were all excellent.
We will be back, soon.
