The culinary wizards at Campo Azul conjure an eclectic menu of authentic Mexican-style eats. Dining companions can prime palates with a sextet of spicy bacon-wrapped shrimp, or sink chips and origami battleships into the cheesy depths of chili con queso dip. Traditional Mexican plates pair a duo of cheese enchiladas with guacamole salad to incite a sensory fiesta for taste buds, and hefty burritos stuff their soft tortilla shells with sizzling hunks of brisket, shredded chicken, beef fajita, or pork leg. Take up forks and tiny boom boxes when crashing the Alambres Hawaiian plate, a southwestern luau where succulent pork shoulder presides over a sweet-and-smokey entourage of grilled bacon, ham, poblano pepper, and pineapple. Or put pocket calculators to work by computing the number of possible combination plates that can be created by selecting any two meats, before devouring the results with rice and beans.
Wooden fences ensconce a pair of outdoor patios, where diners can coordinate chews to the tune of live mariachi bands or serenade sad-eyed servers from an elevated stage. While not included with today’s Groupon, a full-service bar irrigates arid gullets with margaritas, cocktails, and bottled suds.
Campo Azul Bar & Grill
Campo Azul Bar & Grill's kitchen uses local and seasonal ingredients to recreate Mexican cuisine. As you sip a signature drink such as the blue margarita, El Campotini, Cantaritos, or Micheladas, the staff will bring over plates of fajitas that sizzle directly on your table. The chefs can also grill signature dishes including Molcajete Cielo Mar y Tierra, Que me ves Alambres, La Pina Azul, and street tacos made also from scratch. Before calling it a meal, it's worth it to try one of Campo Azul's decadent dessert inventions, such as the flan and Arroz con Leche.
