As a broke college student, I'm looking for advice on places to go out to eat on the weekend. I also live in the Lower Valley and gas is not cheap so I want to stick to the east side. New or old, what restaurants are your favorite? Please no more Chico's Tacos.

I want to be able to sit down and have a great meal with my fellow broke college students that isn't fast food. New restaurants have opened up like Chipotle and Mama Fu's but I'm not sure if I should try them. I love Cheddar's, BJ's and El Nopal but want something different. What's your favorite? I'm going to trust you guys so help me out! Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
