A meal for under $5 in the city that's filling?!!!! (before tax of course)

La Brasa Roja for your rotisserie chicken needs! and for under $5. They are located at 3125 W. Montrose Ave.

They do have a few other locations in the city, but this one has the $4.95 special all day long!!!! The lunch special is red beans, white rice, a small salad with a lime for dressing and yer choice of a quarter of rotisserie chicken, a char grilled chicken breast, or a char grilled piece of rib eye steak. What an amazing special!! But you gotta go to the Montrose Ave. location, I know for sure that at one of their other locations the special has selected hours of availability then it goes up 3 or 4 dollars. Who wants that? Not me.

And you really should try the fig dessert, it is "Monte-licious!" even though it costs almost as much as a full meal.

What?!!! Yer tellin me there's tacos in them there grocery stores?!!

Danny's Market at 2140 North Western Avenue is one of Chicago's many grocery store/supermarkets that sports a little restaurant somewhere in the back of the store or off to the side of the cash registers. Usually these are gonna be mexican restaurants, actually, that's all i have ever seen. but the point is, these are mostly gonna be great little spots with really fresh food. duh! it's in a store that sells fresh groceries!

there are dozens of these places if not hundreds around the area. so next time yer a t yer local neighborhood grocer, take a look around, or if you smell something good, go check it out. it's probably gonna be a good spot for you. i know danny's is good for me!

photographed are the sopes. sopes are basically a thicker corn tortilla that's more like a plate itself. it is loaded with meat, lettuce, cheese, tomato, etc. and fried on the flat grill. it is "monte-licious!!"

and when yer done eating, you can do a little grocery shoppin for the week!

Just a friendly reminder

Diner grill 1635 W. Irving Park

Great Steak Co's 9some people say "za" for pizza, I say "co's" for taco's.

"Taquria El Asadero" is across the street from Welles Park at 2213 W. Montrose Ave. And it is easily one of the better char-grilled steak taco spots in Chicago.

It can get very slow at times, but that is because they cook the food fresh to order. I actually almost left a few times due to the wait, but I stayed cause I knew what was comin. they make their chips, which are excellent! And they have excellent horchata. If you don't what that is... it's a sweet vanilla-ee, cinamony, drink that is a great thirst quencher. You have just got to check it out!!!
