Great Mex is a small restaurant with a big reputation. There are great taco deals (for around $1) on Tuesdays and Fridays, but since crowds flood the place on these days, it’s best to go on a regular day—the taco is worth the full price after all. Try the shrimp burrito or taco salad. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any selection at this local hotspot.
