Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touched into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Tex-Mex cuisine and drinks at Chevys Tacoma, located at the corner of South Fife and South 38th Street.
Chevys serves up Mexican fare in Texas-sized portions, with salsa and tortillas made from scratch daily. Begin by ordering a bowl of guacamole to witness a server capture, skin, and gut a live avocado right at your table before hand-mashing it into fresh guacamole. From there, let your taste buds tango across tender tamales of real masa (wrapped by hand each morning), or play mad scientist and suture together an electrified monster plate from enchiladas, tacos, tamales, flautas, and chile rellenos ($11.99 for any two, $13.29 for any three, $14.49 for any four). Seafarers, meanwhile, will want to try the seafood enchilada ($13.69)—a mélange of shrimp and blue crab sautéed in white wine and garlic that's folded into corn tortillas with veggies and Jack cheese, then topped with spicy habanero-pesto cream sauce. To keep the hot peppers and piquant salsas from singing the sinuses, douse your mouth-flames periodically with a prickly pear or blue agave margarita ($6.95) mixed with top-shelf plata, reposado, or añejo tequila.
More up-front than a turkey-talking cowcatcher, Chevys lists nutrition info and recipe details for each dish online. The restaurant's casual and colorful décor makes it easy for diners to kick back, eat up, and forget about their various troubles and accidentally summoned demonspawn.
- They are very family friendly, have wonderful service, tasty food and some fresh margaritas! I have tried a couple of the salads and their Chicken Tortilla soup has always been amazing. I would also recommend the fajitas - it is a large enough portion to share and isn't greasy or salty. – Cara T., Yelp
- Their food is always consistent. I could go back and order the same thing during another visit and it will be just like I remembered it. The portion sizes are huge and prices are moderate. – bks_lil_raven, Yahoo! Local
