Without Mexican restaurants, obtaining south-of-the-border specialties would require diners to travel thousands of miles or to settle for snacks from south of the Canadian border. Snag nearby Mexican favorites with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Lucia’s La Taquera in Independence.

Over the course of 16 years, Lucia's La Taquera has garnered a delicious reputation for its broad menu of Mexican fare. The vegetarian chili relleno burrito ($6.50) sates cravings for vegetables that might otherwise be directed at neighbors' decorative gardens, and deep-fried, double-shelled tacos test the limits of their flour or corn tortillas with beef, shredded pork, or chicken and all the traditional toppings ($2.50–$3.75/taco). Diners can choose from 19 Mexican plates such as the tostada platter, a three-pronged formation of cheese-and-onion enchilada, bean tostada, and bean burrito ($7.75). Desserts complete meals or punctuate consecutive dinners with treats such as Lucia's Favorite, a mass of deep-fried tortillas covered in cherries and ice cream ($5).

Lucia's La Taquera

Corn tortillas filled with meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese rest peacefully on a plate, unsuspecting of the fate that awaits them, when suddenly they find themselves in the hot embrace of a deep-fryer. What emerges is not merely a taco, but Lucia’s Famous Taco, a crunchy confection and, like many of Lucia’s dishes, a twist on a classic Mexican dish.
