Patrons at Across the Street can peruse a menu of fresh Mexican feasts while sipping house-made margaritas in the patio-side bar and inspecting the nearby window display of myriad tequilas. Groups of friends or rival fork salesmen can dive into starters such as roasted poblano and corn queso, or excavate thick-cut fried green tomatoes topped with pico de gallo and fresh goat cheese from under zesty habanero sauce. Innovative entree selections include vegetarian eats such as the goat-cheese enchiladas, stuffed with mango and served over black beans with mango salsa, as well as sweet-potato enchiladas sautéed in tomatillo salsa and smothered in queso. Beer-braised ribs imbibe SweetWater 420 pale ale before reeling drunkenly as chefs grill them over pecan chips and force them to walk a straight line onto a plate, and guests can sip spicy margaritas made with house-infused arbol-chili tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice, and triple sec. Drinkers can also opt for the sweeter house margarita, gulping down refreshing swallows in the restaurant’s colorful interior or soaking in the patio’s colorful Day of the Dead sketches and murals depicting the stages of mitosis.

Across the Street

Mexican-food enthusiasts Ali and Lana found themselves seeking out the spicy cuisine at least three times a week. They were determined to find a place that fulfilled all their needs: good food with vegetarian options, quality margaritas, a patio, and few to no poltergeists. When Across the Street's current space opened up, the two jumped at the chance to create the restaurant they had been searching for. Both previous owners of eateries along with wine shops, coffeehouses, and an antiques business, they seamlessly blended their former experiences in their new location.

Today, Across the Street welcomes fellow food fans with housemade margaritas, a large selection of tequilas, and fresh Mexican entrees. Guests feast on plates ranging from vegetarian chimichangas to shrimp tostadas by the bar or on the bustling outdoor patio, where meals are sometimes scored to live music. After dining, patrons can stop by the adjoining market, which supplies everyday products alongside locally produced breads and pastries.

This was a really fun Groupon, as we got to try a lot of things and drink margaritas! The service was outstanding, and the food was very good, especially the pumpkin soup.
