Most grocery delis have the routine stuff: cold cuts, fried chicken, salads and so on. But for something really different, stop at your neighborhood Food City deli counter (presuming your neighborhood Food City has a deli counter) for some Mexican fare. While the offerings vary from day to day, there's always the usual stuff (red chile, green chile, refried beans, chimis)—but order the chicken ranchero if it's available. Flour or corn tortillas are warmed while you wait. Grab an orange Mexican soda, and you're set. A family of four could easily dine well for less than $25.
