You probably won't want to hang out in this cramped convenient store/gas station, but the diverse menu of snacks and lunch combos along with the prices, which stomp out the competition, make it worth a look inside. A smiling woman prepares lunch combos: gyro with pita bread or a hamburger meal costs $5.99; tamale, salad and a soda is $3.49; and a dozen pasteles are $8.99 -- a special deal. The wine shelf is stocked with very affordable merlots, pinot grigios and cabernet sauvignons. Rich Cuban coffee is a hot item - a 12-ounce café con leche sells for $1.75.
