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.
