Serving a mix of Mexican and Salvadorian fare, Tortilla Café’s chicken tamales and pupusas are so good they’ve made cameos on the Food Network’s popular Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. With all menu items priced under $10, this budget-friendly spot is hard to stay away from. Try the empanada platter or the Tex Mex burrito filled with grilled steak, chicken, shrimp, pico de gallo and guac and wash it all down with a refreshing horchata.
