Your favorite cheap and cheerful Tucson eats?

ziggylu | Sep 6, 2007 04:39 PM

After a disastrous stay at the Westin last month they've invited us back down this weekend to make good. We didn't really have a getaway planned for this month so are looking to keep things really casual and not spend a fortune.

Any suggestions for your favorite cheap and cheerful spots? Would like to keep dinner under $50. We'll probably hit the Guatamalen place we found on our last trip for a lunch or dinner but beyond that haven't planned much. Not looking for gut bombs a la Pat's chili dogs. We'll be up in the foothills but willing to travel anywhere in town.

Also, husband has always been intrigued by the vegetarian place, Govinda's. I've never been a buffet fan so have always been unwilling to try. How is this place really?\

edited to add:

also, any recommendations for Mexican seafood would also be appreciated. We went to El Mezon del Cobre last time we were down there and had a mixed experience. Husbands fish dish was delicious but my shrimp just OK. Again, not looking to spend a fortune but wondering what other options there might be in town.
