67 delicious (and cheap!) pleasures of summer -- for under $10
The burger at this new Divis hotspot lives up to its name, with a housemade sesame-scallion bun, dry-aged meat, secret sauce, Gruyere, red onion, and lettuce. You can add housemade bacon for $1.25, or an egg for $2. And hey! Why not pick up another perfect summer treat: A side of frankaroni, basically fried mac and cheese with hot dog inside, is five dollars.

YUZU CHICKEN WINGS, $9.50
These are some mighty juicy chicken wings, with a flaky exterior (they're fried in potato starch); get them for $6 during happy hour (Monday through Friday from 5:30pm–6:30pm).

EL DORADO TACO, $3.75
These off-menu tacos at La Taqueria are like the precursor to the chalupa. A crispy taco is folded within a soft one, and melted cheese holds the two together. Magic. You have to get the carnitas, of course (it also comes with beans). And it's worth ponying up for some guacamole on top.
