Cheap Eats: Fuego Tequila Grill

Why go? At this sleek downtown tequila-spiked sports bar, the happy hour menu runs until 7 p.m. every day except Sunday.

What’s the vibe like? An industrial yet beachy interior, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a large bar lend Fuego a hip vibe.

What to order? Of the handful of happy hour specials, the tacos and tostadas are the tastiest, but the mole dip is a good choice for the table if you plan on lingering.

Added bonus: Don’t miss Tostada Mondays and Tequila and Taco Tuesdays, when the namesake items are available at a discount.

How much? $7 plates and $6 cocktails during happy hour; the full menu runs $6–$19.

Where is it? 1359 Locust St., Walnut Creek, (925) 891-4023, Lunch and dinner daily, brunch Sun.
