Good and Cheap near 22nd and Chestnut?

Going to a show at the Unitarian Church and am looking for a place to meet beforehand. Mex would be great... Anything will be considered. Thanks.

  1. Tequila's at 1602 Locust. That's about a 3/4 mile walk or short drive.

      With entrees averaging about $22, I wouldn't call Tequila's cheap. Maybe the OP would.

      If you don't mind walking a few blocks south, there's the Grace Tavern at 22nd and South, and the Pub & Kitchen at 20th and Lombard.

    2. El Fuego burritos is pretty good (and fast) and just opened at 21st & Chestnut. I thought I read they got a liquor license but I'm not sure.

      1. There is a good Chinese restaurant at 19th and Chestnut (northern side) called Square on Square. Not far.

        1. Tria at 18th and Sansom for apps, salads, sandwiches, wine by the glass and interesting beer selection

          1. There's Almaz Cafe on 20th, just north of Walnut. Delicious Ethiopian, with entrees running about $8-$10. I don't think they serve liquor, but the coffee is excellent.

              Thank you all. Think I'm going to give Tria a shot.
