Las Placitas is a favorite for authentic, homestyle Salvadoran and Mexican food. The flavorful chicken or green corn tamales, cheese pupusas and plantains are standouts as is the roasted half chicken or pork morsels smothered with sautéed onions. Standard Mexican dishes include sizzling hot fajitas, overstuffed enchiladas, fried chimichangas, crispy tacos and soft, filling burritos. The laidback, welcoming atmosphere attracts all types of locals and visitors alike. (Andrew Noyes)
