Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mexican fare at Cinco de Mayo Amigos Cantina's locations in Toledo, Oregon, and Bowling Green.
The tortilla-wielding culinarians at Cinco de Mayo Amigos Cantina whip up a full menu of meaty entrees, shelled spreads, fajita skillets, and seafood dishes from south of the border. Muffle stomach-growl machines with chips and guacamole made tableside ($3.99) before venturing into the heartier territory of tacos ($1.99–$2.99 each), burritos ($3.50–$9.99 each), or enchiladas ($2.25–$2.50 each). Or chose from a bevy of house specials, including the chimichanga meal ($9.99), replete with mexican cheese and ranchero sauce, and the carnitas meal ($8.99), which boasts flour or corn tortillas enswathing succulent pork tips that are more delicious than the ones offered in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Swine. Midday eaters can nom on the Speedy Gonzalez lunch special ($5.50), which pairs a traditional beef taco with a renegade enchilada for a culinary partnership more delicious than a ketchup-slathered reel from a buddy-cop flick.
Cinco de Mayo Amigos Cantina lets you cut a Latin-inspired rug during salsa-dancing sessions every Saturday night and permits you to sing your bicultural heart out during karaoke on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.
