Cheap Mexican food is easy to find, but cheap sit-down Mexican is not so forthcoming. Luckily, Fajitas & 'Ritas in Downtown Crossing offers south-of-the-border eats with less cafeteria-style ambiance. Whether you're looking for appetizers and pitchers of margaritas or a full meal, there's plenty on the menu that will satisfy.
The nachos are a great place to start, a huge platter of chips and cheese, starting at just $2.86. Choose your own toppings, like the tomato, olive, and guacamole nachos pictured above. Or go for a plate of sizzling fajitas or a gooey quesadilla for a filling meal. And yes, the drinks are cheap and strong and make a great accompaniment to the food (or is it the other way around?). Frozen margaritas start at just over $4 each or $11.60 for a pitcher.
Fajitas and 'Ritas is located at 25 West Street, just off Tremont Street. They open daily at 11:30am and close Sunday at 8pm, Monday and Tuesday at 9pm, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 10pm, and Friday at 11pm.
