One Dollar Mexican shutters on 38th Avenue

Don't let that "open" sign deceive you, because a peek through the windows at One Dollar Mexican, which owner Eric Alvarez just opened in September, tells a very different story.

Everything has been stripped from the modest room: the cash register, the refrigerators, the snow cone machine and the sign that once listed chile rellenos, tacos and tostadas, all priced at $1 per item. The place is definitely closed -- apparently the lines of bargain hunters weren't enough to keep it open.

So if you're hunting for cheap lunch in the area, you'll have to look elsewhere -- like Buchi Cafe Cubano, just two doors down.
