Best Of 2014: Bang-for-your-Buck Restaurant
La Casita is where you go when you don't know where you want to go, and you do this because it's cheap and satisfying. You can get three crispy beef tacos with a drink for $5. Tuesdays bring buy-one-get-one-half-off deals on tacos and burritos. You don't even have to pay to feed your starving progeny if you bring them on Wednesdays. And a happy hour, from 3 to 6 p.m., where green-chili nachos, quesadillas or MexiWings can all be had for $3.99? Now that's just loco en la cabeza. You crazy, Pinko Comida — crazy like a fox. — Bryce Crawford
You can't miss the bright pink stucco on Eighth Street, North Nevada Avenue or Woodmen Road. And you shouldn't miss deals like Taco Tuesdays from 4 to 9 p.m., with BOGO half-off. Or the periodic all-you-can-eat breakfast ($5.99), lunch or dinner ($7.99) deals.
