Two Meals For 7 Dollars

My boss usually pays for lunch but sometimes he decides to eat a small snack and leaves me to fend for myself (grrrr). My options are limited unless I want to spend over 10 dollars to have something delivered or I COULD go out and get something but it is raining and who wants to get wet? Not me.

Thankfully I have one place that never lets me down...TEX MEX! They don't have a minimum for delivery and usually give me a lot of food for a great price.

I stared at that menu for quite some time but ended up getting what I usually do. Do you do that, decide to try something new but just get your "usual"?

Anyways, I ended up getting a Combo Meal which included 2 Fresh Tortillas, Mexican Rice, Black Beans, Lettuce, Tomato, Grilled Chicken, and Guacamole.




Before I even dug in; I decided to take some of the food home for din din and I made myself a mini Burrito (insert Spanish accent here). I tossed some Rice, Beans, and Chicken in one of the Tortillas and din din is cooked lol.

And that folks is how you get two meals for 7 Dollars (including tip)! Buen Provecho
Namaste...

  1. Yes, I always prefer to gawk at the menu before going out to eat. I am an indecisive person, so this speeds up the process. It also reduces my chances of changing my mind and ordering the worst thing on the menu.

  2. Looks awesome! You should do a video-I think it would be great! I'm am with you on the menu thing-whenever I want to try something new, I almost always go back to my "staple."

  4. What a deal!

    Yes, I do go to restaurant thinking, "I'll get something new!" and then end up ordering what I always order....I think a lot of people do that. Old habits die hard!

  7. Hey Naomi =) seeeee I told it wasn't working ... I am not sure how to fix it but you should ask April from Foods of April because the same thing happened when she switched to her own domain... I hope you're able to fix it =) good luck!

  8. I always decide to get something new...and always get my usual! I do try new things if I go to new places, but otherwise I figure that my favorite is my favorite for a reason!

  17. I think they are all owned by asians =). I am yet to walk into one and see a latina behind the counter and if I did I might leave lol cause it would seem strange to me.

    Don't ever go to Yummy Taco on Jamaica...
