Sunday Night Special: Esparza's, Portland OR

One positive thing that has come out of The Great Recession is that restaurants have taken Happy Hours and dinner specials to new heights, which make for some good deals around town.

I mean, really, who wants to pay full price for anything anymore?

Which is how a friend pitched the Sunday night dinner special at Esparza’s Tex-Mex restaurant to me – a hearty plate of enchiladas for only $6.99.

Were they good? Well, they were certainly good enough – considering the price and the generous portion.  Not to mention the free chips and salsa, which were quite tasty, by the way. The chips were fresh and still warm when served, and the salsa had a nice smokey quality.

So, a plate of enchiladas with rice and beans, plenty of chips and salsa, plus one beer, and my tab came to $10.00 and change.

I would have easily spent more at Burgerville.
