Food find: El Bueno Burrito

The economy is pretty sucky right now. Everything related to food and fuel is increasing in price to the point that I heard a woman on the radio this morning advising people to tell kids there won't be Christmas this year and get a part-time job now.

I'm not that doom and gloom, but I will be cutting back, just like most families. My coworkers and I recently went out for Mexican food, which was specially described to me as cheap burritos. Indeed, I got a great, filling lunch with enough leftovers for dinner for a cool $5, including a soda. One person at my table even walked away for less than $2. Gotta love it.

And how did it taste? Well, it wasn't the best Mexican food I've had, but it was pretty tasty. I ordered the steak taco platter, which came with rice and beans and three tacos. The tacos had tender steak chunks along with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, queso blanco and sour cream. I got the corn tortillas, but flour tortillas were also available.

So if you're looking for some cheap eats, try El Bueno Burrito in Glendale Heights on North.
