Casa La Doña makes for a great, casual lunch or dinner - the food is fresh, the tortillas are handmade, and everything is affordable. Also, they have 18 types of salsa. The order-at-the-counter space gets pretty crowded on Tuesdays, because other people know how great this casual spot is too, and also because other people like discounted tacos. Just know they don’t serve alcohol.
