The conquistadors visited Mexico looking for gold, spices, and a food to pair with their frozen margaritas in cactus glasses. Share in their discovery with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $20 for a margarita pitcher and appetizer sampler for a table of 4 or more (a $41.95 value)
  • $10 for $20 worth of Mexican cuisine

Each platter arrives to tables piping hot and brimming with Mexican favorites, including chicken flautas, beef nachos, and quesadillas con queso. Sides of crema mexicana, pico de gallo, and fresh home guacamole accent each bite. Wash down flavorful bites with sips of an ice cold margarita.

The menu includes freshly mashed avocados mixed with tomatoes, jalapeños, onions, and cilantro to create fresh, chunky guacamole ($7.50), and triplets of soft tacos stuffed with tender, shredded carnitas alongside rice and beans ($12.99). Marinated steak and grilled vegetables sizzle in fajita skillets ($15.99), and shrimp sauteed in butter, minced garlic, and sliced onions on plates of al mojo de ajo ($16.99).

Carmelita's Restaurant

In 1962, Alberto Heredia and his wife, Carmen, flung open the doors of Carmelita's Restaurant, introducing a menu of tried and true family recipes from Puebla, Mexico. Now, a fourth generation of the Heredia family helps marinate carnitas and blend avocados into guacamole at two Carmelita's locations. The dining rooms, which are bedecked in vibrant knickknacks and paintings, let diners bask in bright colors without getting yelled at by a judge for bringing a kaleidoscope to court. Against the electrically hued backdrop, mariachi bands play on special occasions, their trumpets rising in warm spirals above fiddles and guitars.
