When I first spotted this restaurant near my house, I was puzzled. The Mexican restaurant had recently been acquired by the hackneyed Los Tres Vaqueros, but now a sign emblazoned across announcing “Las Marias Tacos Y Pupusas” hung over top. Fonda y Birrieria Jalisco, one of its previous incarnations, at the same location had always held a spot in my heart, so naturally the new spot piqued my interest. Sadly, I never got to sample the pupusas (I’ll save them for a subsequent visit) but the Pollo Chipotle was good and the portions were downright astronomical.
