A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10 you get $20 worth of Southwestern fare at Cactus Pear. Cactus Pear serves up a tasty selection of Southwestern eats at two comfortable, family-friendly locales on Jefferson Avenue and Kenwood Road. The seasonal menu lists customer favorites, mixing savory bluecorn beef enchiladas ($13.95 for two) and eggplant fajitas ($12.95) for a perfect blend of carnivorous and vegetarian tongue pleasers. The kids and dessert menus guarantee something picky eaters will love, and if not, there’s plenty of delicious white chocolate bread pudding with which to invariably silence culinary complaints.

- My wife and I have made Cactus Pear a new favorite. We've tried about 8 different items meals between the two of us and haven't been disappointed yet. Start off with the chips and salsa. It is inexpensive and the salsa is a unique treat! – mefford76, Urbanspoon, Kenwood location
- The decor for the restaurant is fantastic, with stripped-down brick walls and a nice color palette. I highly recommend trying out the Cactus Pear if you are craving Mexican food with a slight twist. – Dan J., Yelp, Jefferson location
