Our Story

Founded in 1985, Las Cazuelas Restaurant & Pupuseria is a cornerstone of Highland Park's culinary scene, offering an authentic blend of Mexican and El Salvadoran cuisine. As a family-owned business for over three decades, we owe our longevity to our loyal customers and the ever-growing Salvadoran community in Los Angeles.

From the beginning, we recognized the need for diverse culinary offerings. In the 1980s, El Salvadoran representation in L.A. was limited, so we diversified by serving both Mexican and Salvadoran dishes, all crafted from Mamá Inés' cherished family recipes. Today, we take immense pride in seeing customers travel from far and wide to relive the comforting flavors of their childhood family dinners at Las Cazuelas.

We're more than just a restaurant; we're a place where you can feel at home. Your ongoing patronage has made us a lasting presence in a neighborhood marked by constant business turnover. We're not just serving food; we're preserving tradition, building community, and keeping the spirit of the 90042 zip code alive with our delicious meals and family-friendly ambiance.

Choose Las Cazuelas for a culinary journey that's both satisfying and nostalgic, right in the heart of Highland Park, Los Angeles.
