Lucky Jesus at Los Comales Restaurant
Other writers would give this statue a descriptive name, but I'll just tell you that it's Jesus with ~$40 in bills taped to various parts of his body. And if that isn't enough insurance for good luck and fortune, place him next to a Chinese Lucky Bamboo.
Of course, the folks at Los Comales in Durham ("Best Chargrilled Tacos in Town!") might generate some luck with their cooking, as well. I had some cheese quesadillas and pupusas there last week and they were pretty good -- with even and crispy cornmeal tortillas/shells. Los Comales has a very nice condiment tray with several salsas, cucumbers, pico de gallo, lime, cilantro, etc. Prices for everything are pretty reasonable, too. I seem to recall that they had an flat-panel television, too.
I can't recall if any of the staff speak English, but the finger-pointing method will probably do you OK if you need. Their menu is on the wall behind the counter, with as many types of tacos filling as you'll ever ask for.
