It took thousands of years for native cultures to perfect blue corn, as they could never quite get the proper ratio of grain to mashed-up Smurf. Enjoy a wide variety of carefully cultivated flavors with today's deal: for $10, you get $22 worth of fresh, flavor-filled Mexican cuisine from Blue Burrito Grille, whose three locations stand ready to sate at Santan Village Foodcourt in Gilbert, on Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale, and in Scottsdale Fashion Square Foodcourt.
The authentic offerings hat-dancing across Blue Burrito's menu marinate expectations in garlic and grill them into delicious oblivion (menus vary slightly by location). Appetize yourself with the complex complexion of a Mexican fajita pizza (double-layered tortilla pizza with grilled chicken or steak, pico de gallo, grilled peppers and onions, and melted cheese, $9.95), before boldly moving on to a specialty such as the two flautas and a taco platter, which comes chained to sides of Mexican rice, black or pinto beans, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and tomato ($7.25).
When traditional ingredients are used for good, amazing deliciousness results, whereas traditional ingredients used for evil produce Limburger cheese and M. Night Shyamalan movies. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the grilled shrimp burrito, filled with garlic marinated shrimp, zesty southwest chile sauce, crisp romaine, jack cheese, rice, and pico de gallo ($7.95). Continue feeding from the sea with the Mexicali favorite, fish tacos del mar—two white corn tortillas filled to the brim with tender grilled cod chunks, shredded cabbage, and tangy white cilantro sauce ($6.95). Cross the border between traditional and untraditional by digging into the fresh flavors piled high on every plate materializing in Blue Burrito Grille's Narnia-esque kitchen.
