Teres Market; Delicious Pupusas and Authentic Mexican on 40 West in Ellicott City

This place merits high praise. The owners are Mexicans who prepare delicious authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. One of the employees is Salvadoran and makes delicious pupusas revueltas, as good as those served at Dona Azucena near Langley Park in Prince George's county. At two bucks apiece, two or at most three of these delicious and extremely filling pupusas make an excellent yet economical meal that constitutes chow-worthy cheap eats. One afternoon I enjoyed a plate of flautas that would be th envy of many a fonda or fogata in La Republica (Estados Unidos Mexicanos) where I have enjoyed over a hundred meals. The piece de resistance of Tere's is the condiment bar that includes both green and red salsa as well as pickled chiles. Tere's deserves ample chowhound patronage IMO.

            I'm up there all the time and cannot pinpoint where this is. Is there some store nearby that would be a landmark??

                On Rt 40 just beyond Rogers Ave and the Nissan/Acura dealer. Pops up on Google Maps

          2. Had lunch here on Saturday and it was terrific!!!!! Hubby had a couple al pastor tacos (I had a bite and they were delicious) and a pork & red chili tamale. I had a torta, the steak was breaded and too tough to bite off (next time ask for chopped) but full of flavor. Staff is very nice and helpful. Loved the condiment bar to personalize our orders. It is on the list of regular rotation when up in that neck of the woods!!
