Cheap Eats: Tacos & More offers a variety of fun, cheap food

With summer upon us, trips to the Southtowns beaches are sure to be in the mix.

Undoubtedly, you’ll reach your quota of dogs and burgers. Luckily, Tacos & More along Route 5 can fill the void. While it’s closest to Hamburg Town Beach (permit required) and Woodlawn, it’s a short ride from Angola.

Located in a makeshift plaza, the place is tiny, with a few indoor tables and picnic tables in the summer. Lake Erie shimmers brightly across the busy road.

The beef burrito ($3.99/$5.99) included a layer of refried beans. The carnitas ($2.39/$4.29) contained hunks of nice, chewy pork. A chorizo taco uses the spicy sausage ($2.39/$4.29/$5.79). Fajitas come chicken ($4.75) or steak ($5.50). Taco salads run $4.75-$6.75. Quesadillas are $2.59-$4.89.

The sub selection (hot and cold) is huge, with prices from $4.49 for a half to $9.50 for a whole. Did we mention they have pizza, too? Personal, small, medium and large. Personal starts at about $4 for cheese, a small cheese runs $7.75. There’s variety, too. Specialty pies include white, fajita (steak or chicken), supreme, taco and even Hawaiian style with ham and pineapple.

How about a fruit-filled taco ($2.19) for dessert? Or ice cream (soft or hard)? Choose from cones ($2.39-$3.69), shakes ($3.89-$4.79), floats ($3.69-$4.89) and something called a Nut Buster ($3.19). Italian ice ($1.49-$2.39). A banana split tops out at $6.49. For cheapies, there are Flying Saucers (99 cents) and Freeze Pops (25 cents).

How does this tiny hole-in-the-wall do it? “If you don’t see it, just ask,” the cook said. “If I can make it, you can have it.” Good to know.

A frugal feast of bad (good) food can be had, along with a side of summer memories.
