Best Pricey Mexican: Algusto Tortilla & Salsa

As a rule, Mexican restaurants are pretty inexpensive and dining during lunch is an especially good way to get a hearty (and cheap) Mexican meal. But you won’t find these refried value meals at Algusto. In fact, the place doesn’t even have a lunch menu, making its somewhat inflated prices seem even more staggering. For instance, a “farmer style” burrito costs $9.45. The place does boast fresh, quality ingredients (the shredded chicken in the chimichanga is all white meat), and yes, we do admit that each entrée is cooked to perfection. It’s definitely not the place to go if you’re looking for the usual quick, cheap Mexican.
