Andy Ruiz Jr. Loosens Up His Belt … on Modest Mexican Grub w/ Mariachis!!!

Andy Ruiz Jr. ain’t one to let a little thing like a boxing title change up his dining preferences — the dude digs authentic Mexican … even if it means getting it from a hole-in-the-wall joint.
The newly-minted heavyweight champ — who recently stunned the world by defeating the heavily-favored Anthony Joshua — was spotted chowing down at a low-key Mexican chain Friday with his girlfriend and the rest of his fam in El Centro, CA … almost 2 hours east of San Diego.
The restaurant of their choice … La Resaca — known for their seafood and with a nearly 5-star rating off a ton of good reviews. It’s a modest joint, but it was perfect for Ruiz and co.
Daaamn, did Andy Ruiz really just expose Anthony Joshua at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN 💀😳

You’d think after becoming the toast of the town everywhere he’s gone since the upset last weekend, he MIGHT just treat himself to something a bit more swanky in, say, L.A., maybe? Seems like that isn’t his style though — he’ll stick to chips and salsa … and live mariachis.
We gotta say … it’s been a while since we’ve come across a guy like Andy Jr. here. He certainly doesn’t fit the mold for what we’ve come to expect of a ringside champion but at the same time … it’s refreshing to see homeboy flip the script on everyone and their mom.
Speaking of moms … happy birthday to Andy’s ma, Mrs. Ruiz! We’re told they were all out there celebrating her 58th birthday. Never change, ARJ.
