Burritos, like birthday presents, are carefully wrapped, filled with pleasant surprises, and best received when adorned with a bow of the finest guacamole. Savor edible embellishments with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine at Casa Durango, which has locations in Renton and Burien.
Casa Durango sates stomachs with a diverse menu of seafood, land-food, and traditional Mexican favorites made with freshly plucked produce. Appetizers, such as camarones al mojo de ajo ($10.95) and quesadillas ($6.95) set the stage for dinner-table debates over the best member of Menudo, and sizzling chicken and skillet-seared steak fajitas double-team taste buds in a culinary cage match ($12.95). Introduce palates to the savory resplendence of the color green with a bowl of chile verde ($10.95), or transport barbecue pork to your mouth in palanquins of grilled corn tortillas with the onion-and-cilantro-topped al pastor taquitos ($1.95 each). While dining, visually feast upon the earthy hues and exposed wood-beam ceilings that lend Casa Durango a Sonoran feel without the deceptively huggable cacti.
Though Casa Durango sometimes features discounted prices through other third-party websites, today’s Groupon offers the best available deal.

At Casa Durango, chefs whip up a smorgasbord of Mexican eats, with a spread of tortas, tacos, salads, and burritos paired with frosty tropical cocktails and margaritas. Like a computer manual written by Stephen King, the menu is as lengthy as it is appetizing. It presents dozens of different steaks, enchiladas, seafood, and chicken dishes ladled with zesty sauces and complemented by sides of savory rice and beans. The dishes run the gamut from traditional, homey plates of marinated lamb shank and slow-simmered pork to group-pleasing dishes of nachos and taquitos. And when it comes to entertaining groups, the restaurant also hosts karaoke performances that lighten the mood on weekends.
