Mexican cuisine is notoriously difficult to prepare at home, due to the high cost of bean re-fryers and the fact that smaller kitchens cannot accommodate the vastness of an unfurled tortilla. Dine on mammoth mouthfuls with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and beverages at 3 Margaritas in Greenwood Village.
An army of piquant, exciting edibles at 3 Margaritas accompanies a full bar, which supplies replenishing fluids and extinguishes mouth blazes with more than 50 types of tequila. Like Pizarro searching for a shining city made of cheese, patrons can surge across the border into a delectable order of queso fundido populated with chorizo, green onions, and tomatoes ($7.25). The Burrito Loco's flour-tortilla hull groans with the pressure of the rice, beans, chicken or steak, green chili, melted cheese, guacamole, and veggies ($10.25). Neptunian noshers can satisfy sea hunger with the enchiladas de jaiba brimming with dungeness crab and scallops ($12.75), and the steak a la tampiquena pairs an exotic land-cow skirt steak with mole sauce and refried beans ($13.75).
Applaud the parade of beverages emerging from 3 Margaritas' full bar, including kiwi, watermelon, and papaya margaritas ($6.95), or their cousin, the Vallarta margarita ($7.95), a blend of Cuervo gold tequila, oranges, limes, and a Grand Marnier float.
3 Margaritas Family Mexican Restaurant
The fiery scent of roasted chilies permeates the air at 3 Margaritas Family Mexican Restaurant, wafting through the dining room and melding with the smells of whole beans and the sharp, citrusy tang of cocktails made with more than 50 premium tequilas. As diners struggle to pick their palate pal from a sprawling dinner menu, they can sip on classic Mexican blended drinks whipped up from Cointreau, lime juice, and spirits such as El Mayor Reserve. When food platters arrive, diners find that flames and a generous pat of butter have transformed humble skirt steak into classic carne asada, or that chicken breasts have found a marriageable partner in mole sauces with hints of poblano peppers, pumpkin seeds, or peanut butter. A children’s menu welcomes pintsize diners with kiddie friendly finger foods including taquitos, banana burritos, and classic American fare such as burgers and grilled cheeses.
