Wallet-friendly Mexican grub isn’t exactly a rarity—especially north of 100th Street—but the quality South of the Border fare at this cozy spot stands out. You’ll find flavorful huaraches (try the cesina, or salted beef), along with fresh, chunky guacamole and house specials like grilled chicken in a nutty pumpkin sauce. Pair spicier options, like the fiery shrimp soup, with a glass of icy guava juice or a papaya shake.
