Like a castaway on a desert island, a talented chef can repeatedly recombine the same ingredients to invent unique dishes or ham radios that actually run on pork. Sign up for a three-hour tour of flavor with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare at Los Jimadores Tex-Mex Tequila Factory in Bedford.
Los Jimadores Tex-Mex Tequila Factory’s evocative archways and exposed-brick bar set the stage for a menu of modern and traditional Mexican dishes crafted from farmers'-market-fresh produce and high-quality meats. Tex-Mex combos meld up to three meal components, such as pork tamales, crispy beef tacos, and chicken enchiladas ($7.99–$8.99), and the fajitas brocheta camaron establishes a shrimp-based monarchy with regal vestments of bacon and ranchero sauce ($14.95). Los Jimadores' signature tequila-cream sauce graces either a pan-seared pork loin or chicken breast, fortified by a starchy wall of chipotle mashed potatoes ($11.99–$13.99). Though alcohol is not included in this deal, the restaurant’s masterful bartenders craft exquisite, attention-grabbing cocktails ($6.50–$9) without resorting to gimmicks such as sparkler garnishes or sentient ice cubes.
Los Jimadores Tex-Mex Tequila Factory
Los Jimadores is the Mexican term for the skilled farmers who cultivate the hearts (or piñas) of blue agave plants, so crucial to the production of tequila. These piñas can weigh anywhere from 40 to 200 pounds and require its harvester to answer a devilish riddle. It's not a job for the weak of arm, but the heavenly results of that labor can be tasted in Los Jimadores' signature margaritas, including the Herradura French margarita and coconut margarita. These drinks will find no shortage of dance partners on the expansive menu, which aims to cover all bases on both sides of the border: traditional tacos and enchiladas with homemade corn and flour tortillas, Tex-Mex chimichangas, guacamole made tableside, chorizo-laced breakfast omelets. The equally ambitious desserts offset fried ice cream with the pastel imposible, a gravity-flouting blend of flan and chocolate cake. Los Jimadores can also host parties of up to 80 people in a private room.
