Takeout from Tradiciones (Ranch Market)

One night, on the way home from work, I stopped in to get some tortillas and chicken to take home because I didn't feel like cooking after a long day... and it was the best takeout combination I ever had.

They sell half chickens grilled on the outside mesquite fire which are just wonderful and inexpensive. I think about $6? The hostess informed me that they were out of tortillas, and it would take a few minutes... I figured they probably had some frozen, but one minute later I see her and the manager go outside with a huge bowl of masa and start balling up the dough, pressing it and setting it on the grill. 5 minutes later, I had the fresh tortillas and chicken in hand. When i got home, I heated up some black beans and made rice, put some salsa on the table and had a great dinner.

It's a good idea if you work downtown, don't want to cook, but would rather sit at home in comfy clothes than at a restaurant.
