Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today's Groupon: for $20, you get dinner for two at El Olvido (up to a $42.75 value). The dinner includes:

  • One appetizer (up to a $7.95 value)
  • Two entrees (up to a $12.90 value each)
  • Two drinks (up to a $4.50 value each)

Hailing from Acapulco, Mexico, El Olvido’s Executive Chef Jorge Pingarron crafts a menu of authentic dishes that span multiple Mexican regions. Chicken wings served with avocado sauce ($7.95) serve as piquant prelude to carne en su jugo ($9.90–$11.90), the house specialty that uses a traditional Jalisco recipe to cook strips of meat in their own juices with beans and bacon. Costillas en salsa verde ($11.90) couple hearty bites of pork baby ribs in green sauce with rice and whole beans, and in the camarones a la diabla ($12.90), shrimp sautés in a spicy chipotle sauce alongside bacon, onion, and poblano. Guests can pair bites with imported beers such as Tecate and Modelo Especial ($3.50) or traditional Mexican flavored water ($2.50), which doubles as ammunition during traditional Mexican water-balloon fights.

Reviews

The room is dark and the staff is friendly (sometimes effusive), both of which contribute to the all-around relaxed atmosphere.

Tucker Shaw, Denver Post, 6/8/11

Yes, yes, how's the carne? I must say it is really very good. Sliced the right way, cooked with bacon and beans, they're doing everything right.
