    For Mexican, I don’t think you can beat El Vaquero. I’ve never been disappointed. Plus, they have the best margaritas in Columbus. Mmmmm Margaritas … is it too early?

    Aside from one or two menu items, I think El Vaq is super “meh”
    There are at least a dozen taco trucks in town that smoke El Vaquero. And La Michocana on Morse Rd will make El Vaquero feel like eating Taco Bell from then on out. You’ll be ruined forever. You gotta take a trip over there ASAP if you like Mexican. So so so good. Swearsies. And try at least one lengua taco…I haven’t found anyone in town that makes lengua that good.
    And it’s never too early for margaritas. Lime juice is vitamin C right…it’s practically the same as taking a vitamin in the morning. ;)
    El Vaquero does have some seriously lethal ‘ritas. ow.

    Okay, is there a sit-down Mexican place that serves the same food as the taco trucks? That would be amazing, but I haven’t found one.

    There is one right behind the budwiser plant. I think it might just be called “Tacos”

    That is really a good deal!
    Will definitely give it a try.
    For a Japanese steak house I like Genji’s.

    I have to say, I’ve heard several people say that (including most of my family) and I have never liked the place. I think the food is so so and the atmosphere is horrible. Maybe I’m just old school, but I’ve liked the Japanese Steak House since the early ’80s, when it was located down by Grant Hospital. (that’s right kids, I’m old.) I even took a prom date there. (btw: cream colored tuxedos and trying to impress your date with your chop stick proficiency? Not recommended)
    I’ve also had decent meals at Fujiyama.
    I’ve been in Genji at least a dozen times and have yet to have a meal I enjoyed. However, as we all know, individual taste is incredibly variable, and given the crowds that place packs in, I wouldn’t want to discourage someone from giving it a try.

    @TaraK – Taco truck quality in a dining setting can be found at La Michocana, as osulew has suggested. The Morse Road location is kind of nice with the swinging doors and the authentically dressed servers.

    2175 Morse Rd
    Columbus, OH 43229
    (614) 471-4500

    I prefer the Woolworth’s diner-type setting on 161. While there you can dine on favorites like Bomba sandwiches and tongue tacos.

    939 E Dublin Granville Rd, Columbus, OH 43229
    (614) 436-5900

    Wow – C Bus is lucky to have loads of great restaurants.

    For a vegetarian Indian extravaganza, gotta give it up for Banana Leaf 816 Bethel.

    Just thinking about the yogurt Lassis and street-food style Chaats are making my mouth water. Ambience a’la Grey Hound Bus Station and the strip mall setting is odd but the food quality and preparation transport my taste-buds to a small Indian cafe’ near Bombay.

    Highly reccomended. http://www.bananaleafofcolumbus.com

    What I really appreciate from this thread is the bargain hunters, as I’m one of those, of many, who has curtailed discretionary spending radically. But, I am also curious if there is a restaurant that serves a wild game dinner? (that wouldn’t be cheap though, I know).

    Honestly, your best bet that for that would be to go to North Market Poultry and Wild Game. They have a lot of prepared meals with bison and the like (the Polish cook there is amazing). You can also get the ingredients from there to do some meals of your own.

    Ted’s Montana Grill in The Arena District serves bison steaks and burgers. Ive never been there, but pass by it on my way to the flicks.

    Wonderful!
    It is a great way to introduce someone to wild game, because if it is not prepared and cooked properly it can be extremely gamy. Or gamey! Gamy and Gamey are both exceptable according to Webster grammar cop!

    I prefer a nice Gamay, but to each his own.

    Wonder if that would go nicely with wild duck medallions:)

    I love duck. They usually have some sort of tasty duck option on the menu at Z Cucina.

    Ooo, almost forgot about them! Had some wonderful ostrich there, which is tough to find around here for some reason. Just bear in mind that they may be a little pricey if you’re on a budget.
