Best Cheap Meal

Tamale House

It's easy to keep the wallet as full as the belly with Tamale House's generous 85-cent breakfast tacos. Airport Boulevard's beloved, unassuming shrine to the taco gods keeps prices down and service speedy with low overhead and a streamlined operation. Place your order, marvel at how cheap you made out, fill your own salsa cup, and wait with bated taste buds for your number to be called. "Number 71!" never sounded so satisfying.
