After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $21 worth of tacos, Mexican eats, and drinks at Barracuda Taqueria.

Eschewing the lettuce, tomatoes, and frequent Seinfeld references favored by more Americanized tacos, all of the tacos on Barracuda's menu are crafted from homemade corn tortillas and served with cilantro and diced onions. Try the al pastor ($4), a streetwise Mexi-meat of slow-roasted pork marinated in peppers, achiote, pineapple, and spices, then topped with pineapple pico. The even más auténtico lengua ($4)—beef tongue topped with pickled red onions and queso fresco—is a street-stand classic from the streets of Mexico City and tastes best through a flamboyantly colored lucha libre mask. Vegetarians, meanwhile, can fill up on the veggie taco, packed with rice, black beans, and sautéed 'shrooms and squash ($4). And from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Barracuda serves breakfast burritos topped with locally sourced eggs, chorizo, barbacoa, jalapeños, potatoes, beans, ham, and more. Preface the tortilla parade by conjuring up a cauldron of chile con queso ($5) or the Barracuda street nachos ($7) caked with mounds of chile con queso and picadillo meat, but keep your vestigial second stomach open for a dessert of Mexican pot de crème (Mexican chocolate topped with cream, $4.50).

A casual décor complete with walls encrusted with beer caps and a visible cooler gives Barracuda a cool, chill ambience where everyone feels like they're hanging out on their best friend's deck, especially if they order a frothy beer or Barracuda's refreshing sangria.
