These days, a $3 meal of Mexican food is either a couple of tacos from your favorite old school truck or a bag of mystery meat from Taco Bell. For one day next week, though, Valley classic Casa Vega is celebrating their 55th anniversary by rolling back the price on their House Combo to $2.15, which is what it was on June 28, 1956 when the beloved hangout opened its doors for the first time.On Tuesday, June 28th, from open to close, you can get a House Combo for that price, which comes with Spanish Rice, Refried Beans, and a choice of two items from a list of traditional Mexican dishes, including Chile Relleno, Chicken Taco, Beef Enchilada, or Vegetable Tamale. Hey, man, you don't even need a flux capacitor to score this deal. (PS We're told the Casa Vega house combo has been the longstanding most popular item on their menu.)

Did you know Casa Vega goes through 50 pounds of house-made tortilla chips per day? That's a lot of chips! If you need to get caught up on your CV trivia before your bargain meal next week, their Facebook page is sharing 55 facts about the restaurant in honor of their anniversary.
