Before the burrito, eager diners were reduced to carefully collecting their chosen ingredients in cupped hands and drinking salsa directly from cups cradled in elbow crooks. Celebrate the delicious birth of safely ensconced dining with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Chico’s Wood-Fired Grill, which is located near Tampa in Westchase.
Chico’s brings creative new twists to classic Mexican flavors. The menu puts the care and spirit of small, family kitchens on the Mexico border into your favorite Tex-Mex dishes. You’ll find sandwiches, burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and fajitas, all made with fresh ingredients including steak and chicken. Classic Mexican goes upscale like a scuba diver in a dinner jacket with the filet mignon tacos ($7.99), filled with grilled tenderloin, jack and cheddar cheeses, crispy onions, and a garlic-tomato salsa. Or, try a new take on an old favorite with the Cajun shrimp burrito ($8.99), stuffed with sautéed shrimp, jack and cheddar cheeses, rice, grilled onions, sour cream, and guacamole.
You can grab most fajitas or enchiladas for $10 to $14. The sandwiches also marry classic and gourmet, including the Cubano ($7.79) with smoked pork and sweet ham, and the Navajo flatbread sandwich ($7.99) with guacamole, chipotle chili sauce, and chicken. Top any of the dishes off with salsa that remains a customer favorite and the envy of robots everywhere. Hot salsa inevitably calls for a cool drink, so complement your meal with one of Chico’s popular margaritas or the tasty sangria. This eatery also boasts exceptionally friendly service that will make you feel at home, if your home suddenly had the sizzling ambience and delicious aroma of a Mexican restaurant.
