The right blend of Mexican spices turns meals into fiestas and lures droves of grazing piñatas within the reach of a sturdy broomstick. Enjoy south-of-the-border zest with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Casa Flores Mexican Restaurant. This Groupon is valid at eight locations in Stockton, Lodi, and Tracy.
The Flores family assures every Casa Flores eatery prepares its Mexican cuisine with traditional flare. Diners peruse the menu before debating philosophy with an order of house-made guacamole and chips ($5.95). The discussion of Aristotle’s Poetics can progress to a more saucy level to match the chicken, steak, and shrimp fajitas ($11.95–$15.95) that sizzle with flavor, and à la carte items such as burritos, tamales, and chimichangas can be doubled up to entertain twice as many taste buds ($8.95 for 2-item combo). Table tenants may also pick from 25 combo plates—one for each round of patty cake that occurs between linemen in the average football game—such as the beef taco and cheese enchilada or beef enchilada and pork burrito, each chaperoned to the table by spanish rice and refried beans. The staff also gladly substitutes meat with ingredients such as black beans, refried beans, and monterey jack cheese.
Casa Flores Mexican Restaurants' prices vary by location.
Casa Flores Marina
Running a Mexican restaurant was in Octavio Cruces’ blood. After all, his family had owned Mexican restaurants throughout Stockton for more than 17 years, and growing up, Octavio had learned the business from the ground up—washing dishes, cooking food, serving customers, and even tending bar.
Guided by those experiences, he founded his own now-thriving business, Casa Flores Marina, which has been lauded by local diners and reporters from The Record alike. Octavio oversees kitchen staffers who fold fresh, homemade ingredients into authentic Mexican dishes as bartenders blend premium silver, reposado, and anejo tequilas into margaritas. Colorful flags and Mexican artwork adorn the dining-room walls, while numerous tabletops speckle the sunny outdoor courtyard. On Wednesdays, the restaurant hosts live performances ranging from local bands to lone mariachis delivering lengthy Shakespearean monologues.
