The flour tortilla is impressively versatile—it's sturdy enough to support hearty burrito fillings, yet soft enough to cradle a sleeping princess's head. Revel in the tortilla's usefulness with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and margaritas at Cesar's Restaurant on North Broadway Street.
Cesar's supplements authentic Mexican meals with dangerously refreshing "killer" margaritas. The cuisine menu bursts at the seams with south-of-the-border favorites, such as homemade chicken, cheese, or pork tamales ($9) and the super burrito, an over-sized substitute football stuffed with the customer's choice of meat or rice and topped with melted cheese and salsa ($9). Patrons can hold down lighter plates of mango-adorned fish tacos ($8) with enthused fork jabs while dining outdoors, or investigate the heavy past of the chili relleno by surfing free WiFi or asking a chili relleno dinner directly, which will then reveal a story of poblano peppers stuffed and smothered with chihuahua cheese ($12).
Diners can cool off mouth motors with a frozen or on-the-rocks margarita in a prism of flavors, including blue curacao, peach, lime, and strawberry. Slurps are served in such individual sizes as large ($9), jumbo ($10), and mega ($11), and pitchers ($32) are available for groups and wookiees.
Cesar's oversized margaritas, in flavors including peach, raspberry, and blue curaçao, bolster chatter over time-tested dishes such as enchiladas, fajitas, and rellenos. On clear days, a rooftop deck proffers views of the skyline and cars' receding hairlines, and comfy couches throughout the eatery serve as ideal venues for contented postmeal sighs. Cesar's third floor sports two bars and a lounge bathed in ultramarine light and pulsing rhythms, which roll down exposed-brick walls. Beneath the dining room's idyllic murals and life-size replica of the sun, bottles of imported Mexican brews clink gleefully over steaming plates.
