After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disc with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Amigos Mexican Restaurant located in the heart of historic Old Port, just one block from the water.
Amigo's daytime dining and lively bar scene by night provide a fiesta for Mexi-connoisseurs, college kids, and piñata lovers alike. Southwestern trailblazers can get going with the fresh-made guacamole and chips ($7), or dive right in for a sizzling order of fajitas with your choice of sautéed protein (from $11) or the deluxe enchiladas platter, made of two beef-, chicken-, or pork-filled corn tortillas topped with sauce, cheese, and sour cream ($11). Billiards and dartboards provide midmeal diversions, and the vivacious neighborhood atmosphere haunt lends buoyancy to postprandial jocularities and celebrations.
Seven TripAdvisors give Amigos Mexican Restaurant 3.5 owl eyes, Yelpers give it an average of three stars, and 72% of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant. Amigos also has more than 1,000 Facebook fans.
