What You'll Get
A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves. For $15, you get $30 worth of classic Mexican fare and soft drinks at Ajuua Mexican Bar and Grill, located on the northwest side.
Ajuua Mexican Bar and Grill's menu features fresh ingredients, family-developed recipes, and creative flavor combinations from the various pueblos of Mexico. Lay the foundation for a dinner fiesta with an order of chicken empanadas ($7.99) or queso flameado (melted asadero cheese topped with spicy lean chorizo and served with tortillas, $7.99). Exacting diners can wield mathematical control over the contents of their Pascal's triangularly shaped sizzle pans with four distinct varieties of fajita, each customizable by meat, tortillas, add-on shrimp, and serving size.
Those who prefer their sizzle to stay in the kitchen can relax on a covered patio with a heaping plate of baby back ribs (with Mexican rice and borracho beans, $9.99), toasty roasted poblano pepper stuffed with white cheese and shredded chicken (in a cilantro cream sauce, $10.99), or eight jumbo grilled shrimp stuffed with jalapeños and cheese and blanketed in bacon ($13.99). Spurs fans may not develop Robert Horry's hoops skills, but they can develop an identical palate to the champ with #5 Rob's enchiladas, the player's signature dish of marinated chicken, grilled shrimp, and mushrooms stuffed in two flour tortillas and covered with Monterey Jack and white-wine cream sauce ($12.99).
A true culinary retreat, Ajuua warms its interior with aromatic cooking spices and a vibrant red wall, its exterior decked out with a covered patio and twinkling waterfall. With diverse ambience suited for any occasion, Ajuua Mexican Bar and Grill will easily set the scene for your night on the town, whether it be a romantic dinner for two, a romantic dinner for three, a romantic dinner for four, or a festive family feast.
