Cheap Mexican (Texas-style) eats

I feel obligated to mention Talita's Mexican-Italian Restaurant on N. High St -- and not just because I worked there this summer. Well, partly because of that; but also because they have some great vegetarian options but don't see much business from veggie customers.

The restaurant itself is a little shabby looking (it's next to a Valvoline, fer cryin' out loud), but the food is decent and inexpensive. My favorite is the Talita (or Enchilada) Supreme, which was designed to be kind of a vegetarian Mexican lasagna. It's composed of layers of veggie stuff -- spinach and sour cream, refried beans, rice -- in between tortillas (corn or flour) and then covered in enchilada sauce and melted cheese. One is enough for two people, I think, although I have seen some of our larger customers down the whole thing in one go.

The enchiladas are also very good, but mostly because they smother them in the aforementioned sauce, which is damn tasty.

They also have burritos, quesadillas, tacos, and salads, all with vegetarian options. And their meat dishes sell very well, too (although I can't speak for them personally).

The lunches run between $4-6, and the dinners are almost all under $10. Stop by, eat some food, tip well, and smile at your waitress.
