Fort Myers - El Acajutla is a local gem that will make you a regular

TuteTibiImperes | Apr 14, 2012 06:15 PM

El Acajutla has become one of my favorite places in Ft. Myers. It's primarily Salvadoran, but with other Central American cuisines represented as well.

The pupusas are incredible (I recommend the chicharonne y queso) as are many of the entrees. The Salvadoran Steak is flavorful with a great pepper, onion, and tomato sauce, and the Camarones Enchilados has a real kick. Try one of the Baleadas for a different take on a quesidilla, folded over but not smashed and filled with anything from beans to meats, cheese, and cream. The slaw and red sauce they serve as condiments for many dishes are addictive.

Service is incredibly friendly and attentive. The seating area is small, and it fills up quickly during dinner hours, but they are happy to do take out (they usually offer a delicious cup of the soup of the day while you wait for your take out order - take them up on it if they do).

The News Press had a write up recently:

It's located on Fowler just past the Popeye's between Winkler and Hanson.
