Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touch into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon. For $15, you get $30 worth of hauted-up Mexican cuisine, tequila, and other fine sips from Blue Agave Restaurant y Tequileria in Otterbein.
Blue Agave's menu features upscale, authentic Mexican cuisine that rotates to include fresh, seasonal ingredients common to the region. Take off your shoes and glide across the floor to your tile-top table beneath exposed brick walls decorated with relics of turquoise and terra cotta affectations. Once seated, you can start with chicken flautas with serrano chiles and mole chatino ($7) or a platter of mussels with smoked chile cream sauce and habanero rouille ($10). Try to practice your pronunciation with dishes such as the enchiladas en salsa de huitlacoche with chihuahua and cotija cheese and agave rice ($15) or the chuletas de cordero, spicy lamb chops with ancho-port reduction and sweet-potato puree ($28).
For dessert, reach no further than a flight of firewaters, three enlivening, premium tequilas served in half-ounce shot glasses (Partida flight with blanco, reposado, and anejo varieties, $10.75). Go fishing for the rare cactus eel in a sizable prickly pear margarita with El Jimador blanco tequila and fresh lime ($9.95), or lay down the big bucks for a "Millionaire" margarita with Partida anejo and Grand Mariner 100 Centenaire ($18.50).

- Service was excellent, with our waiter coming often enough to keep us happy but was not intrusive to our table conversation. – OpenTable user who dined on 04/01/2010
- One of our guests was a vegetarian and there was a good variety of choices; her selection was very tasty. The food was very flavorful and rich in spices. – joseplumber, Citysearch
