La Espiga De Oro functions more like a restaurant attached to a small convenience store than a burrito joint. It has a full menu of large plates and pupusas, plus dried chilis for sale and a coffee station. If you’re here early, the breakfast burrito is solid, but it’s worth coming in during lunch for the chicharron burrito. It's full of spiced rice, tomatoes, and crunchy fried pork, and then griddled until the outside is blistered.

Bonita Taqueria & Rotisserie
Bonita is a TNT crime drama of a restaurant in the Marina – satisfying, but never quite award-winning.
Papito Hayes is a fun spot for weekend brunch or a casual midweek date. Go for the huevos rancheros and the spicy margaritas.
