5 Places To Get Cheap Tacos In Wilmington

5 Places To Get Cheap Tacos In Wilmington
By: Lew Morgante

Let’s face it comedians don’t always have a lot of money because they are spending their money on getting to and from gigs or maybe on booze so they are always looking for places to get a deal for some eats so if you don’t have the cash or just want to save some money follow the local comics!

  1. Islands Fresh Mex Grill:
    When – Everyday
    Price – $1.00 – $1.99+

    With four locations you are closer to some cheap eats then you thought. Before 5 pm all tacos are just $1.99, after 5 pm the veggie, beef and chicken tacos are just $1.00! If you want steak, pork or tilapia they are $1.99. You must purchase a drink to get this special but you get some chips so you have a full meal. Seriously where are you getting a better deal than this! You can get hard or soft shell, three toppings and a sauce if you want more then it’s just $.35 which is pretty reasonable. This is a daily special so keep this in mind when you gotta break that emergency piggy bank or you’re looking in the couch cushions and on the floor boards for food money!
