I love Greek Souvlaki, 400 E. 300 South, when I'm lunching out of the office, but every time I pass Su Casa with its huge banner above the entry "Lunch Special $4.99."

Decided to cut my trip toward my regular gyro with the red sauce and lemon rice short a couple weeks ago and see what I could get for at Su Casa for $5. A plate-size bean and cheese burrito covered with enchilada sauce and a side tostada covered with beans, lettuce, tomato and sour cream. As expected, tortilla chips and salsa are on every table.

It's a lot for a quick lunch, so go hungry. The food comes out quick, even with the huge lunch crowd (they must have also seen the banner). The service is friendly - I must have been thanked for coming by three different people on my way out. Minus your drink, the bill comes to $5.38 with tax, and a 20 percent tip is only $1, but waitress Kumiko is so attentive you have to leave her a little more.

The place is smaller than it looks from the street, but the patio is huge. So, they should have a table waiting for you outside.

Later on, the $8 dinner special will get you a chile verde burrito with choice of meat, smothered in enchilada sauce and cheese, a cheese enchilada, rice and refried or black beans.

Not the best Mexican I've ever had, but definitely the best for the price. That's the dealio.
