Editorial Review of Tony's Burrito Mex

Tony's Burrito Mex

Open 'til 4 a.m. on weekends, this burrito spot in the heart of Roscoe Village is a prime drunk-food stop. But unlike many of its super-cheap brethren, Tony's Burrito Mex offers meals you can enjoy sober, too. The menu features Mexican favorites like huevos rancheros (eggs prepared over-easy and topped with ranchero sauce), burritos for under $5 and every kind of taco imaginable for a mere $1.55.

Spanish speakers usually occupy the counter space inside, with the rest of the neighborhood clientele filling a row of booths. A wide array of artwork lines the peach-colored walls, including a weird landscape painting with a three-dimensional branch jutting out from it. A bunch of guys behind the counter do the cooking, process orders and dole out eats. A neon-orange sign on the pop machine declares that refills are not free, so if you decide to hang out, be ready to buy (a small coffee will run you 75 cents). However, sometimes it's better just to get your good, cheap grub and get out, right?

Average cost: <$10
