Unlike cinematic love scenes, Mexican food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Picante Grill bordering Brackenridge Park. In addition to a Zagat listing, Picante Grill claims a slew of accolades for their menu stacked with authentic recipes culled from the interior of Mexico. Whet a voracious appetite with their Sopa de Huitlacoche (large for $8.95), a subtly flavored chicken broth bolstered by black mushrooms, melted white cheese, avocado, and fresh corn. Picante's selection of "Old Mexico" entrees include Chile en Nogada ($12.95), a poblano pepper roasted, stuffed with almonds, raisins, and minced pork, and drenched in a downpour of creamy walnut sauce. Seafood selections ($10.95–$14.95) are hand plucked in shades of shrimp, rainbow trout, and tilapia, and each Sunday their delightful paella, a venerable seafood smorgasbord, answers the cravings of vestigial gills and fangs. While this Groupon does not apply to alcoholic beverages, they may be purchased separately, or you may quaff Picante's nonalcoholic fare such as fresh-squeezed limeade ($1.75) and cane-sugar-based Mexican Coca-Cola ($2.00).


Picante Grill was featured in San Antonio Current, and Zagat rated the food very good to excellent. Yelpers give it a four-star average, and 80% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • But it is in the Old Mexico section of the menu that insights into el corazon de la cocina Mexicana are to be had. The cochinita pibil (named for the pib, or pit, in which it's traditionally cooked in the Yucatan) has the tangy taste, orange cast, and sultry demeanor of the real thing… – Ron Bechtol, San Antonio Current
  • The best way to describe this wonderful spot across from the Witte is authentic Mexican food with a little tex-mex twist. – Jeffrey H., Yelp
