Every Thursday all summer, my friends and I meet up at Molcas Mexican Grill for half-priced tortas. The meat-filled sandwiches are hardly expensive to begin with: My favorite, the carne asada, is just $5 on most days. What's more, one serving is usually enough for two people, cutting my gang's Thursday lunch expenses to just $1.25 each. A large tent next to the food truck provides plenty of shade.
Molcas Mexican Grill, at Grant Road and Seventh Avenue, is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. almost every day. Read more about Molcas here.
