A tortilla makes a handy mousepad, 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 Mexican fare at Carlito’s Mexican Bar & Grill.
Servers bear platters of sizzling fajitas, crispy flautas, and decadent desserts to patrons relaxing in large red booths beneath the colorful artwork that adorns the warm-colored walls of Carlito's. The fajitas Texas's chicken-, steak-, and shrimp-topped flour tortillas ($13.95) curl up next to a sizzling campfire of veggies to swap ghost stories. The Monster burrito flaunts a showy red-sauce cloak and hides a choice of chicken or beef that snuggles between fluffy pillows of guacamole and sour cream like a sleepy bullfighter ($7.95).
In the flautas doradas, a quartet of flour tortillas swaddle beef tips and juicy chicken and somersault in a pool of golden oil until they are warm, crispy, and slightly dizzy ($7.95). For the decadent chimi cheesecake, creamy cheesecake dons a sweet cinnamon and sugar coat ($5.95) to dazzle palates with the dulcet power of a roundhouse from Julia Child. Carlito's bartenders sprinkle diners with liquid joviality from the full bar, fueling after-dinner discussions about the burrito that got away.
Servers whisk platters of sizzling fajitas, crispy flautas, and decadent desserts to patrons relaxing in large red booths at Carlito's Mexican Bar & Grill. Here, the multihued artwork adorning the walls reflects the vibrant flavors on the menu. In addition to Tex-Mex favorites, the cooks whip up traditional Mexican snacks such as fresh ceviche and elotes—corn on the cob slathered in Mexican cream sauce and dusted in spices. They populate a vegetarian menu with poblano-mushroom enchiladas, tofu tacos, and guacamole that's made fresh during tableside service. Capping off meals, their desserts include fried ice cream and chocolate chimichangas that dazzle palates with the dulcet power of a roundhouse kick from Julia Child.
