We’re not sure exactly when California Grill opened, but we do know for certain that it was around long before Virgil Avenue became a hotbed for trendy brunch spots and tasting menu restaurants. Surrounded by string lights and a fortress of cacti that are probably taller than you are, this corner spot is hard to miss. The casual Salvadoran place is usually full of regulars who treat it like a weeknight clubhouse. But even if it’s your first time, the woman behind the counter will treat you like she’s known you all your life. And you’ll reliably find some piping hot pupusas coming out of the open kitchen 7 days a week.

Order a few pupusas revueltas the next time you’re in the mood to fill up on cheesy pork and refried beans. Make sure you get an extra bag of fresh curtido to top things off—the mild cabbage adds crunch to every bite. On weekends, you can also pick up an order of fresh Salvadoran-style quesadillas, which are cakey, baked with sweet cheese, and topped with sesame seeds.
