Where Can I Get Crappy Fake Mexican Food?

Haha, Speedy Gonzales is actually on EVERY single Mexican restaurant lunch menu in my town. I don't even have to One enchilada, one taco, choice of rice or beans. I don't even have to look at the menu to tell you that. If they've got that, then this is EXACTLY the place I am looking for. Thanks!

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! I'll be sure to try these places out when I move back next week. Right now, I am trying to get as much Mexican food in before I leave home for the fall.

Where Can I Get Crappy Fake Mexican Food?

This might sound weird, but I am looking for the cheap, far from authentic Mexcian food that I grew up with.

Down where I live in the South, EVERY Mexcian restaurant has the same menu. You basically either order by combination number, lunch special, or a la carte.

The food is the same in every place. They have quesadillas, fajitas, chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and a few other slightly more authentic dishes. You can order anything with rice and refried beans.

Right when you sit down, they bring chips and salsa to the table. The decor is tacky, and almost nothing costs over 12 dollars. Lunch is 6 dollars max.

I can't find a single place in Philly that is like this. All the Mexican or TexMex food here is either fancy and authentic or "fresh" and fast like Chipotle. These both are super tasty, but I don't want authentic or fresh or good quality. I want cheese dip and a chicken quesadilla that tastes SO much better than it should.

Is there any place I can find this??
