This small roadside restaurant is inexpensive and clean, arguably the two most important assets of a cheap eatery. The squat building is a bit isolated, as it sits alone on the east side of Cicero, facing the Midway Hotel Center, but its quiet defiance is inviting. Burrito Grill has a somewhat regal presence. The restaurant offers beloved Mexican staples like tacos, tortas and, uh, burritos, as well as fare for the more adventurous stomach, like Menudo. All the food falls under the $5 mark. There are a few places to sit inside, but there's no reason not to take some of the portable dishes to the sidewalk and watch the air and road traffic.
Average cost: <$10
