After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary Mexican fare at Canteen Modern Tequila Bar in Tempe. Canteen's imaginative take on Mexican cuisine weaves a colorful taco tapestry with threads like smoked blue cheese and portobello mushrooms. The menu also includes large fusion plates and guacamole made tableside by men with a fist of mortar and a fist of pestle.
- Canteen isn't a run-of-the mill college watering hole. There are more than 100 kinds of premium tequila and mescal on the drink list (enough to please aficionados, I'd say) along with well-crafted margaritas that go down easily. The Casa Margarita, made with blue agave blanco and fresh lime juice, was refreshing after a busy day at the office. – Michele Laudig, Phoenix New Times
- The margaritas were top notch. Food was some of the best Mexican I've ever had. Loved the space and the ambiance. – Sarah M., Yelp
