Budget Bites

At this airy Rainier Beach Mexicanery, a sweet-faced kid with eyes as big as all get-out drops his crayons and dives, face first, into deep-fried ice cream. Disco tunes boom from the bar, halting only for a rousing version of "Happy Birthday." Teenagers chat with their folks while sipping strawberry Penofiel and noshing on nachos.

This is one huge menu, with a dozen appetizers, soups and seafood galore, plus all the usual Mexican-American must-haves. Want a burger and fries?
