Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baja cuisine at Berryhill Baja Grill.
Berryhill Baja Grill plates Tex-Mex fare with a baja twist, spicing up mealtimes with its famous Berryhill tamales, named Best Tamale in Houston by the Houston Press twice in the last decade, alongside a spread of Southwest favorites. Since 1928, when Walter Berryhill first took to Houston’s streets atop a bicycle and pushcart, peddling his homemade tamale recipe through Model T exhaust fumes and sideswiping flappers, Berryhill tamales have sated the need for husk-wrapped comestibles. Carrying the banner of this now-famous recipe, Berryhill Baja Grill offers the traditional treats in orders of three ($4.99), six ($8.99) or twelve ($13.99), stuffed with beef, pork, chicken, bean, or spinach and corn.
Along with its tamales, the grill's capacious menu tantalizes tongues south of their bicuspid border with the charms of chicken enchiladas topped with tomatillo sauce and monterey-jack cheese ($3.69), the crisp tenacity of tempura-fried fish and special sauce in the baja fish tacos ($3.99), and the melodramatic pull of complicatedly layered quesadillas ($7.99+). The grill unites many of its menu items into sumptuous combos ($6.99+), which prevent indecisive eaters from buckling under the pressure of choosing their favorite gustatory zone. Find a loophole in morning’s monopoly on breakfast with an all-day menu of early riser eats including the veggie breakfast taco built from the ground up with eggs, potatoes, pico de gallo, avocadoes, and cheese ($2.49).
Siesta-starved young ones can be put to rest after a pint-sized smorgasbord of chicken fingers, mini corn dogs, or enchiladas from the kids' menu, served with fries, Jello, and a drink ($3.99). Find sweet solace in freshly made desserts, or let self-aware thirsts quench themselves with libations from Berryhill’s diverse drink menu.

Berryhill Baja Grill
Berryhill Baja Grill continues an 84-year-old culinary tradition begun by Walter Berryhill, who sold his handmade tamales around Houston with nothing but a pushcart, a tortilla press, and his personal recipe. Today, the grill’s tamales pack savory cornmeal and fillings such as beef, pork, and spinach within cornhusks recently liberated from overcrowded cornucopias. Elsewhere on the menu, fish tacos combine tempura-battered fish, special sauce, and cilantro in a hearty corn tortilla, and pollo platters smother grilled chicken breast with affection in the form of poblano peppers and mushrooms—the hugs and joint tax returns of the food world.
