RESTAURANTS WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE:

La Chuperia: Dive bar with delicious tacos, burritos and tortas (Mexican sandwiches) that you can eat there or take to go. I highly recommend the chicken or veggie torta. So good! Open noon till midnight every day. Great selection of beers on tap as well. Or try the chuper nachos (the bigggest plate of nachos loaded up with meat you have ever seen–2 people can eat it) or a Michelada (Mexican bloody Mary with beer and seafood) for a hearty meal after class.
