Mexican fast food can get a bad rap, but there's nothing like a freshly made taco or burrito as a quick comfort meal. El Taco Riendo offers more than a dozen varieties of tacos (at $2.10 an order), along with burritos, tamales, chimichangas, and even a full plate of nachos. If you're looking for a more complete meal, combination plates include traditionally prepared beef, chicken, pork, or shrimp dishes along with rice, beans, and tortillas. ($8.50 to $12). If you're feeding a bigger group, you can get carry-out of meats, rice, and beans by the pound.
