Recipes are written in a language all their own, leading amateur cooks to confuse a pinch for a dash or forget that the chef's word for "water" is "salt." Trust a native speaker with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Acapulco Grill.
Acapulco Grill displaces hunger with platefuls of Mexican fare steeped in spice and doused in sauce. Tortilla shells wrap around a medley of meat and veggies to form south-of-the-border culinary staples, including tacos ($1.25 each), burritos ($5.99), and sizzling fajitas ($9). Diners can graze on underwater flavors by sampling specialty seafood dishes, such as the cocktail a la compechana's bundle of oysters, octopus, and shrimp ($8.99), or by inhaling deeply while swimming in a public fountain. Acapulco Grill also boasts such Italian offerings as pizza, lasagna, stromboli, and calzones.
