Gloria's Pupuseria: pretty good
We ordered beef tacos, chicken tacos, chicken tamales, and pork and cheese pupusas. The tacos were the stars, with flavorful chicken and beer and fresh-tasting other ingredients (lettuce with some spices and avocado). The pupusas were tender but not much different from any other pupusas I've had, and the tamales were so-so: the chicken inside was not bad, but the rest of the tamale was gelatinous and weird. I'd be curious to go back and try more dishes as we were a bit cautious this time.
Drink-wise, we got horchata and tamarindo, which were both sweeter and less flavorful than other horchata and tamarindo I've had.
It was pretty reasonably priced however: $34 for the four dishes and drinks. I'd say it's worth a visit for good Latin American food. Have you been? Let me know what else to get!
