Pupusería y Restaurante Salvadoreño

At Pupusería y Restaurante Salvadoreño, you will find a true oasis from the somewhat rough neighborhood outside. The light and airy dining room features the flags of Latin American countries adorning the walls and soccer matches playing on the TV. As the name implies, the pupusa, a sort of cheese and filling stuffed corn cake served with curtido (sour, pickled coleslaw-type salad), is the main attraction. Aside from these Salvadorean specialties, however, there are many other delights on the menu. Try the pasteles with various fillings, little empanada type turnovers to name a few. Don't worry if you're not familiar with all the dishes, the staff will answer any questions you have and even make recommendations.

Miller's Bar

Miller's Bar, despite the name, is actually best known for what comes out of its kitchen rather than behind the bar. Since 1941 Miller's has been serving up a simple menu: burgers, with Swiss cheese or Velveeta, fries, onion rings and tuna, corned beef, ham and grilled cheese sandwiches. But what they are really known for nationwide is the burger, which is hand ground daily beginning at 4a. Standard condiments are available as are onions and pickles, but you won't find any lettuce or tomato here - don't worry you won't miss it!
