To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Blue Bonnet Mexican Cafe.
Family owned for nearly 40 years, Blue Bonnet serves up a hearty menu, heaping with homespun Mexican staples. Appetize your appetite with the Blue Bonnet platter—an ample serving of guacamole and chili con queso accompanied by homemade tortilla chips ($10.50)—before moving on to made-from-scratch specialties such as the Blue Bonnet chimichanga, which eschews the deep fryer in favor of a delicious dressing of green chili, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream ($9.75). Indecisive diners can munch multiple Mexican classics by opting for one of Blue Bonnet’s 26 combination platters, while caramel-covered mini-sopapillas can satisfy sweet teeth after dinner, or be toted home and planted in the hopes of growing larger sopapilas. A gluten-free menu is also available.
Blue Bonnet’s casual dining room and brightly lit patio both provide a relaxing environment to enjoy your mouthwatering nutriment in any season. Parched patrons can also whet their whistles with one of Blue Bonnet’s award-winning margaritas, available in more than 20 flavors including creative concoctions such as prickly pear, cranberry, and El Presidente—infused with mexican brandy and sealed with the approval of major league ball player Dennis Martinez.
- Then, move on to the good stuff: a cup of classic posole (a Mexican stew filled with hominy, onions, and chunks of pork) and an order of stuffed poblanos. The fire-roasted peppers are filled with sweet corn, onions, sour cream, green chiles, and your choice of protein – Daliah Singer, 5280
- And if you are a big fan of chips and salsa, you’ll be glad to know Blue Bonnet now has three new salsas to try: cilantro poblano, habernero and raspberry chipotle. And the chips they make are made from scratch (as is the case with all of their food), and no lard is used when cooking the chips. – the Denver Daily News
