Zona Fresca in Pompano Beach Sticks to the Formula

The grilled veggie burrito at Zona Fresca.
When sitting down with a grilled veggie burrito earlier this week at the third and newest Zona Fresca restaurant (located in Pompano Beach), I was reminded of New Times' writer Stefan Kamph's recent declaration that burritos are "not for women." While the burrito in front of me wasn't an exact approximation of a "swaddled newborn," it was indeed close enough to being "head-sized" that I had to throw in the napkin about halfway through. The burrito wins this time, but I demand a rematch.

Gigantic portions are a hallmark of a Zona Fresca meal, as seems to be the case with most fast-casual Cali-Mex restaurants. With nothing topping $10 on the menu -- which includes burritos, tacos, salads, and other specialties, like taquitos -- it's hard to argue the value of the meal. The Zona Fresca formula has drawn a steady following in Fort Lauderdale and Plantation, and time will tell if the new location in north Broward attracts the same level of fan loyalty.

Valentine's Day for Cheapskates: Six Places for a Low-Cost Date in Broward and Palm Beach

Cheapskates deserve love, too.
Ahhh, Valentine's Day. The quintessential Hallmark Holiday, invented to divest coupled folks of hard-earned cash (in turn for typically meaningless trinkets) and to remind singles of how sad they should be about being alone on during this most wondrous day of the year. 

As baffling as Valentine's Day seems -- so few people seem to treasure it, and yet our ambivalence only makes it grow stronger -- it can be difficult to ignore if you are in a relationship.

What to do if you're on a budget or your convictions make it physically impossible for you to spring big bucks on a fancy-schmancy table at a low-lit restaurant on Las Olas? Why, the cheapskate date, of course! There is a bonus to choosing a low-rent dining destination on February 14 as well. It's the less obvious choice, so you're bound to miss the onslaught of amateur-night diners who flock to restaurants on holidays like V-Day and Mother's Day. 

After the jump, find six very affordable options for Valentine's Day dates in Broward and Palm Beach counties. We can't promise you that treating your date to a meal at any of these places will increase your odds in the bedroom, but it is unlikely that they'll leave you holding a declined credit card (which certainly wouldn't help your chances).

The jerk chicken sandwich from the Out of Many Food Truck
​Last month, Charlie stopped by the Out of Many food truck in West Palm Beach to see what o

Rachel's, a five-star steak house, features prime rib during its Wednesday buffet.
​See this steak? Not something you'd expect from a lunch buffet line, right?

These days, your typical lunch buffet means Pizza Hut's $10 special or a China Buffet line a mile long (with a bathroom line to match). 

But if you visit Rachel's of West Palm Beach (the steak house part, that is) on Wednesday -- when they have their "prime rib special" buffet -- you'll get just that: a juicy piece of meat for just $5 (yes, we're still talking steak here).

Although not all buffets offer such delectable dishes, it's worth mentioning the few that do. 

Read on to find out where you can get an amazing lunch deal, buffet-style:
