Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $13, you get two combo plates (an $8.99 value each) and two bottles of beer (a $3.99 value each) at Chino’s Rock & Tacos’ Isla Vista location (a $25.96 total value).
Chino's Rock & Tacos pairs authentic Mexican eats with a socially conscious cooking philosophy, and serves them both in a party-minded rock 'n’ roll atmosphere. Two double-item combo plates can include crispy tacos and chimichangas that scale mountains of spanish rice with pinto beans led by chicken or beef sherpas. Mouthwatering fish tacos filled with grilled mahi-mahi, ahi tuna, or shrimp are fashioned with sustainable seafood practices, and the enchilada packs your choice of chicken, beef, or cheese into a pillowy tortilla. Popular bottled beers such as Corona wash down free chips and salsa, or supply the high notes during glass-bottle family-band showcases.
Contented bellies can feel even better knowing one night's profits from each week goes to support a local charity. The eco-camaraderie abounds at Chino’s with biodegradable packaging, locally sourced produce, and the practice of donating used oil to a biodiesel company for reuse. Inside, Mexican-inspired décor riffs with rock 'n' roll music for a pairing that inspires lettuce to shred itself.
