Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Casa del Sol in Fitchburg. An 18% gratuity will be added to the pre-discounted bill.
Casa del Sol serves classic and innovative Mexican dishes for lunch and dinner. For a Wisconsin classic with a Mexican twist, start with jalapeno and red-pepper-spiced cheese curds ($7.50). An abundant selection of burritos ($6.95+), enchiladas ($8.95+), and tipicos ($7.95+) tantalizes traditional cantina enthusiasts, while culinarily curious diners seek suppers from the Chef’s Favorites menu, where grilled tilapia topped with jumbo shrimp and a creamy poblano and cilantro sauce ($14.95) frolics freely. Homemade caramel flan ($3.50) and a crispy-fried strawberry chimi cheesecake ($4.25) offer a sweet conclusion to any meal.
Casa del Sol boasts a vibrant, whimsical décor; each wall is painted a different bright color. The expansive outdoor patio has tables with umbrellas sheltering diners from spontaneously petrified hummingbirds or ravenous clouds.
- As I mentioned earlier, all the standards are winners. The shredded beef enchiladas are filled with tender meat, and the burritos are gigantic. The burrito tropical is one of the best, a giant edifice filled with flavorful pork and topped with fruit salsa. – Erin Hanusa, Daily Page
- The complementary chips and salsa at Casa Del Sol are among the best in town. Warm chips and slightly spicy salsa are complimented by picked [sic] carrots, onions, and peppers. I could eat those veggies alone. – Elliot C., Yelp
Casa del Sol
Carefully balancing starter platters stacked with housemade cornbread and frozen margaritas, the servers at Casa del Sol wind their way through the tables on the outdoor deck overlooking the water. As diners dig into burritos, the flavors of chicken or carnitas meld with garnishes of mango and pineapple or with ingredients from one of four other unique burritos. Meat dishes span many styles, from pork-loin medallions with garlic-adobo sauce to enchiladas verdes with a choice of meat or cheese filling. The inside dining area's bright yellow and purple walls adorned with paintings of whirling dancers complement the bright flavors of the dishes, often delicately evoked by cilantro, poblano chili pepper, or guacamole.
