Loco Pez brings together two of our favorite things: a neighborhood dive and Mexican food. If you happen to come here on one of their dollar-taco nights, you’ll be able to eat, grab a PBR, and leave a tip for under $10. Avoid Happy Hour if you’re trying to skip the crowds and make sure you have cash (they don’t take cards), but rest-assured that the prices will be reasonable and the nachos plentiful any time you go.
