Cheap Eats

$10 Lunch - Nacho Bizness

The Deal:  Though the food truck craze is sweeping our neighbors in Miami, Fort Lauderdale has been slower to join in the food truck revolution. Enter Nacho Bizness, International Taco Bar. Nacho Bizness rolls the truck weekdays to First Avenue and 18th Court (just west of Andrews). It's at lunchtime that you can get some of the freshest burritos, taco and bowls known to mankind.

What You Get: For $7, try an overstuffed burrito in your choice of Yum Yum (spicy Korean pulled pork), Spring Break (grilled Baja fish), Rodeo (carne asada), Earth Day (grilled vegetables) or Marley (Jamaican jerk chicken). Turn any burrito into a bowl for the same price, mini bowls are $5. Tacos, in the same choices, are $3 each or two for $5. Wash down your lunch with a ginger lemonade at an incredible $1.

We Tried:  The Spring Break bowl must weigh over a pound. Generous portions of grilled fish rest on a bed of rice, beans, lettuce and cheese. A sweet and spicy tropical fruit salsa adds just a touch of heat to the bowl. The ginger lemonade was spicy, but not overpowering. We could have drank about ten of them, they were that good.

Bonus Points: Show love to the food trucks - they're super cool and you get rockin' food at a great price.

Nacho Business serves lunch weekdays at 1915 S.W. 1st Street, Ft. Lauderdale. See their website for location changes/updates.
