Food Scene in My Area
Bar/restaurant with great Mexican food and drinks on the cheap. The nachos are massive and only $5 during Happy Hour! The brunch is also killer ($5 Bloody Mary's during "brunch Happy Hour"). On one random night every week, all the tacos are $1 EACH (check their Facebook or Instagram to find out which night)
