[Nfbc-info] On a budget? fast food near freemont hilton

Chuck,

Right across the street from the hotel is a Starbucks and an Indian 
restaurant. There were other buildings, but those were unexplored by me. The 
Indian restaurant was tasty and will not empty your pockets. As for 
Starbucks, it closes early and has odd hours on the weekend.

Also in walking distance, there is a Chevys which has some of the best salsa 
I've ever tasted.

You can find other restaurants a short cab ride away. And, don't forget 
there are buses that can take you to Fremont BART and other hubs of 
activity.

Regrards,
LM
