If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Mexican fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks (or $35 worth of cuisine if redeemed Monday–Wednesday) at Cantina Lounge in Fullerton.
Cantina Lounge accommodates a sensory feast of traditional Mexican cuisine, televised sports, and DJ entertainment under one lively roof. Slide into a secluded booth with friends and compare designer swim goggles under the sleek backdrop of dark etched wood, moody candles, and distressed steel. Tongue-tingling margaritas pair finely with intrepid fusion tastes, such as the mini Shanghai tacos—four corn tortillas steaming with Asian-infused carne asada, mexican and sesame slaws, lime, and queso fresco ($7.99). Furnish empty tables with the torta sandwiches, which tower with select meats, garnishes, guacamole, and sides of beer-battered fries ($12.99), or complement star-spangled bibs with patriotic sauce dollops from the baby-back ribs ($11.99 or $18.99 each).
Guests unoccupied by culinary pursuits can pay attention to the beefy acts of athleticism on one of Cantina Lounge's 50-plus plasma televisions, or feel free to guess a stranger’s sleep score near the patio's roaring communal fire pits. Stay to hear a rotating lineup of DJs rock dance-floor crowds on Tuesdays or Thursday–Saturday nights.
