      _______________

      Hometown Buffet or Golden Coral buffet. Wholesome food, all you can eat. If you like Mexican food, Micha's on south 4th Av in South Tucson.

        Look for Mi Nadito's a family run Mex restaurant with great food

        Cheap places...

        Taqueria Pico de Gallo if Mi Nidito has too long a line which it usually does.

        B-Line Cafe on 4th Avenue for lunch

        Frank's for diner-type breakfast (Blue Willow Cafe also great for breakfast)

        Ali Baba's on Speedway for Middle Eastern food.

          My favorite cheap eats in town:

          Pat's Chili Dogs
          Lavernas
          Lucky Wishbone

            Make sure to pack the Pepto if you stop by Lucky Wishbone (http://www.luckywishbone.com/), but you got to love those fried steak fingers.

              Yeah... I should probably have included a warning that everything except the napkins and plasticware is deep-fried at Lucky Wishbone. But still... cheap, tasty eats.
