Las Delicias – a family favorite for dining on the cheap, we can get a family of 2 and a highchair fed and out the door for about $20.00. The chips they load the table with are the day-old tortillas that they’ve sliced and fried. The guacamole is fresh made to order. The tamales and the grilled chicken burrito are excellent and the tortas (sandwiches) are also very popular with my friends.
The waitstaff are super nice (especially with little ones who attempt to say Hola and Gracias) and don’t roll their eyes when you practice your Spanish with them. For more celebratory evenings, like Thirsty Thursday, they sell excellent margaritas and beer in a glass big enough to make your mother-in-law blush.
Local’s choice: Guacamole y un burrito con pollo y una cerveza Dos Equis con lima, por favor.
