I feel your pain! Our affordable go-to place was Picante Martins Mexican Restaurant but that has recently sold and is no longer operating. Honestly, there are really no affordable dining options on the island at the moment. For affordability, I would hit the new Irvine Ranch Market on Marine Ave that took over the old Hershey’s Market location. It is at the 4 way stop on Marine and Park Ave, across from the Fire Station and The Village Inn.
For other dining options are favorites are:
- The Village Inn
- Ciao Italian Restaurant
