Mexican cuisine is a staple of the Cinco de Mayo holiday, which commemorates the five types of mayonnaise. Feast on any day of the year with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Tapatio Mexican Grill on 18th Street.
Tapatio Mexican Grill clears stomachs' vacancy signs with robust dishes of traditional Mexican fare alongside an extensive beer and cocktail selection. Quaint, adobe-like environs surround Tapatio's airy, spacious dining room, in which the menu of more than 120 entrees silences grousing stomachs.
The Tapatio seafood platter sets deep-fried fish fillets and grilled shrimp afloat in a sea of rice, salad, and mixed vegetables ($10.29), and the Molcajete Tapatio blends mexican cactus, grilled onions, avocado, and jalapeños with Tapatio's signature hot sauce and tops it all with a hybrid protein of grilled chicken, shrimp, and steak ($14.29). The Maria Especial, Tapatio's twist on traditional Mexican fajitas, rests a choice of marinated chicken breast or steak strips on a king-size bed of mexican rice and cheese sauce, blanketed with sautéed onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes, and a trio of 800-thread-count tortillas ($8.99). A full bar flanks the rear of the dining room to extinguish the flames of a spicy meal with 10 bottled Mexican cervezas and a cadre of 50 different tequilas.
