Without Mexican cuisine, people would be forced to spice up their life by using habanero peppers as bath toys or fertilizing the lawn with garlic salt. Heat up a hum-drum routine with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at Antonio’s, located in Taos.
Boasting a menu of modern and traditional Mexican dishes, Antonio’s bold flavors meld with the cozy charm of its classic hacienda setting, creating a satisfying north-of-the-border experience for hungry guests. After feasting on guacamole, swiftly prepared by tableside avocado tamers, diners indulge in chipotle shrimp tacos ($9.50) or a bowl of sopa Azteca, featuring a zesty menagerie of black beans, chicken, and jalapeño ($4). Stuffed with crab, shrimp, and smoked salmon, the enchiladas de mariscos highlight oceanic wonders without the typical water danger of seaweed splinters ($11.95). Adventurous meat fans delve into Antonio’s seasoned leg of lamb in the barbacoa de borrego ($14.95) and the yak rib-eye con hongos al ajo, a hearty steak with garlic mushrooms and potatoes ($15.95). With the restaurant's adobe walls adorned with murals depicting Mexican folklore, patrons discover new stories to tell around the water-cooler factory's water cooler.
