In addition to neatly scooping up beans, tortilla chips have long been used as an effective treatment for salsa withdrawal, when taken with salsa. Get a taste of crunchy medicine with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of quality Mexican fare and drinks at Bit of Mexico in Bandera.
Bit of Mexico fills each burrito, quesadilla, and taco on its menu with authentic Mexican flavor. Sample the south-of-the-border succulents with a shareable starter such as the bean 'n' cheese nachos ($6.95), or test the loyalty of capsaicin-cautious taste buds with a crucible of fiery jalapeño poppers ($8.95). Early risers get their frijole fix starting at 6 a.m. with hearty breakfast dishes such as the eggs ranchero plate, with beans and hash browns ($5.95), and the appetite-demolishing Big Breakfast plate, which includes two fluffy pancakes with eggs, beans, hash browns, and your choice of meat ($6.50).
At dinner, pick a flavorful fistfight with fellow diners over platters of beef enchiladas (with beans and rice, $6.50) and sizzling chicken fajitas (with beans and rice, $7.95). The burrito supreme, stuffed with guacamole, sour cream, rice, beans, and picadillo, makes a meal fit for a king cobra after a three-month fast (with beans and rice, $6.95).
Like sunbathing, reading, and searching for river-dwelling kelpies, Bit of Mexico's tasty fare is best enjoyed outside on a 2,000-square-foot deck overlooking the Medina River. Live music on Friday nights and gospel choirs on Sunday inspire diners to put aside refried-bean reconstructions of their homes and get up and dance. The restaurant stays open most weekend nights until the wee hours of the morning.
- Bit of Mexico has the best enchilades in town. They are now specializing in Barbeque, and the brisket just melts in your mouth. – Virginia, Urbanspoon
- We had the cheese enchiladas and the lunch special which was carne asada enchiladas. Best dish ever! Every thing is made fresh that day and it taste like it too. – PatsyAnnF, TripAdvisors
