Stuck between a rock and a hard place: Rahel or Sabor A Mexico?

Need a cheap, tasty place for Dinner Saturday.

Rahel: Yummy, we've been, we like, sit down, nice woman, great food, BYOB. She also tends to give out as much food as one can hold. We haven' t been in a while. Cheap and I have a cupon

Sabor: new, good recs BYOB not known. known for SLOW service, but great food, haven't had mexican in a while. Cheap, but as cheap as Rahel??

  1. I've brought a 6 pack to SAM.

    1. I haven't been to Rahel. I'm sure you've seen I'm a huge proponent for SAM. While I can't make any comparisons, I will say that I consider SAM to be very very reasonable price-wise.

      1. Never been to Rahel, but I did post some SAM prices on my original post...

          I saw those! Thanks!
          Lemme say this, a HUGE Hudade combo at Rahel is around $30. Rahel happens to sneak out when the plate is clean and add another heap or two of lentils or wot.

          Smme to be about the same at SAM. Also, John told me over the phone that until they get their liquor license, SAM is BYOB.

          I hat making up my mind. UUURRRGGH!

          I need to turn my dart board into a "dining decsion" board

            If you have not been to Sabor yet, it is time.

        2. Although I didn't BYOB at SaM (I forgot), a fair number of guys were there last Friday night with 6-paks in tow, setting up on the outdoor patio, right by the taco cart. Perfect positioning for maximum inhalation with minimum effort...
