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 Mexican fare and drinks at Baja Joe's Mexican Cantina, located in Mesa.
Mouthwatering Mexican platters adorn Baja Joe's sizzling Sinaloan-style menu of authentic south-of-the-border specialties. Tongue surf seafood tsunamis such as fried camarones (shrimp), slathered in ranchero salsa and served with rice, house potatoes, and salad ($11.99). Landlubbers can feast turf-side with a traditional carne asada ($8.99) or rouse sleepy taste-sensors with a steak picado burrito ($6.99), stuffed with red chili beef. Cool off during warm evenings by sipping a cerveza on the new 1,200-square-foot patio or take in some competitive hat dancing on Baja Joe's high-definition TVs.

Baja Joe's Mexican Cantina
The chefs at Baja Joe's Mexican Cantina prepare seafood in the style of Sinaloa, a region of northwestern Mexico that flanks the Pacific Ocean. That coastal influence is especially evident in dishes such as the campechana especial—a medley of scallops, oysters, octopus, and shrimp served inside of a coconut shell—or whole red snapper, cooked with white wine, olives, and bay leaves and served by Poseidon at the end of a trident. Chefs also grill traditional Mexican combinations of carnitas, steak, and chicken, in addition to preparing veggie dishes. The cantina's 1,200-square-foot patio makes an ideal setting to sip a specialty margarita, such as the La Pinta, mixed with pomegranate-infused tequila, while their newly expanded 2,600-square-foot sports cantina boasts eleven flat-screen televisions, pool tables, darts, music, live music and karaoke nights, and more.
