For budget meals, you can find little Guatemalan restaurants all over town. The area around 7th Avenue and 2nd Street on the west side has a variety of places for cheap dining, serving everything from ceviche and pasta to $1 hamburgers.
Sunday brunches are offered in restaurants all around town, usually all you can eat. Some places offer free drinks with your meal and other great dining deals.
