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. Today's Groupon proves it's even more useful: for $6, you get $15 worth of New Mexican eats and drinks at Carlito's Burritos, located on East Patrick. This deal is valid for dine in, and customers can combine two Groupons for tables of four or more.
Like a tortilla-chip-tipped compass rose, Carlito's Burritos' menu guides you through authentic New Mexican fare. Go green or stop at red when selecting your chile for a stuffed sopapilla—fried bread caulked full your choice of meat and smothered in chile ($5.95/$6.95 with steak)—or a signature Carlito's burrito heartily wrapped with your choice of meat plus cheese and chile ($5.95/$6.95 steak). Regulars rarely leave a plate lonely; they pair it with a sopapilla dulce served sweet with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar ($2 each).
If you're only familiar with the old Mexico, the friendly chefs at Carlito's will happily give your mouth a geography lesson. Wash down new knowledge with a draft of Carlito's Special Lager or any other thirst quencher off the drink menu. Toast with new friends and attractive strangers by using up to two Groupons for an impromptu double date, spontaneous fiesta, or colugo-farm meeting.
