Guatemalan restaurants

Does anyone have any to check out? I'm heading there in a few weeks and will be chasing some sailfish. I'm looking to get my appetite ready now though : )

I've only been to red hook so I'm am trying to check a few places out before I go. Thanks all

            Taqueria El Mariachi in Trenton is excellent. I recommend the tacos (tongue or el pastor), but the platters are good too. Their pupusas are not great there though... too greasy. For good pupusas Jireh is good. And Mi Tierra 2 is good for sopes, pupusas and platters. Both are also in Trenton. None of these places have good atmospheres, but all are cheap. You can byob,
