Tacos Andreas-Drake Neighborhood

I took my "Campus Friend" (program to pair up US American folks who want to learn another language with folks from other countries wanting to work on their English) to Tacos Andreas last Thursday (well, to be accurate, she took me!)

It was my first time in this Drake Neighborhood spot, but I don't know why.  It's super cheap!

There are some of your regular mexican dishes (burritos, huevos rancheros, etc) for typical prices (~$7).  But the great deal is tacos and pupusas.  $1.50 for tacos and $2 for pupusas.  Of course, there is a long list of meat choices for both, but ask politely and you can get frijoles y queso.  Delicious.

And as my dad says, "any mexican served with both red sauce and green sauce is good mexican" And this came with both red sauce and green sauce.  Excellent, different flavors in both.

If you are a strict vegetarian or vegan, Tacos Andreas (like so many of the other mexican places in town) is probably not the best spot.  I don't think I've found a single mexican restaurant in town which does not use some sort of animal product in the making of beans.  But if you are a little more lax, Tacos Andreas (and future post El Aguila Real) is a great place to go for a super cheap and filling lunch.  Also, for those of us on lunch breaks, you can get in and out quickly.
