March 2004 Dirt Cheap Eats

With wooden booths, stained glass, and rows of communal tables, this is one of the cheapest sit-down Salvadoran restaurants in the city. Try the $5.95 thick and cheesy enchiladas, a $5.50 chimichanga packed with shredded chicken, or sizzling $8.25 chicken fajitas. Every plate comes with guacamole and sour cream.

Filled with Latinos and Mount Pleasant yuppies, the dimly lit restaurant is cozy, with mariachi music playing in the background. A serve-yourself chips-and-salsa bar keeps the waitstaff from having to fill your basket. There's also a tiny free salad bar next to the salsa.
