As the original handkerchiefs of the Canadian aristocracy, tortillas endured a long history of cold winters and harsh nose blows, which explains their eventual southbound migration. Fill your tortillas with something more savory with today’s Groupon: for $7, you’ll get $15 worth of Mexican cuisine and beverages at Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant, with locations in Bon Air, Midlothian, and Chester.
Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant’s menu explores the diverse options of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine. Treat bilingual taste buds to a lunch of chilaquiles Mexicanos heaped with ranchero sauce ($5.25) or grilled marinated pollo loco paired with beans, rice and tortillas ($6). Turn tongue dials to the highest spice setting and prep for dinner on an appetizer of stuffed jalapenos ($4.25) or an a la carte chile relleno ($2.45). Lighter bighters can graze on the veggie fajitas planted with potatoes, mushrooms, squash and cactus ($8.95) while heartier appetites can be quelled with a grilled ribeye steak covered in ranchero sauce ($10.50) or the four-pronged attack of the cheesie supreme enchiladas ($8.50). If you can’t decide whether to eat a fried, rolled or folded tortilla, try them all on one of Don Pepe’s combination platters ($7). Parents can sip on a jumbo 21 oz Texas margarita ($7.75) while pondering whether or not to feed their children the chicken fingers with fries ($3.95) from the kids’ menu, or to hoard a plate of cinnamon churros ($2.25) all to themselves.
Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant
At Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant, an expansive menu of fajitas, burritos, and steaks illustrates the breadth and depth of the Mexican culinary tradition. Nachos in 10 varieties greet diners with juicy morsels of chicken or beef and a crunch that could wake a jet-lagged Rip Van Winkle. Enchiladas team up with tacos or tamales to form hearty combos, or go solo to showcase classic Mexican ingredients such as poblano peppers and green tomatillos. Quesadillas can be stuffed with vegetarian-friendly fillings, such as mushrooms, or meaty delights, such as house-made chorizo. To round out meals, xangos come with a dusting of cinnamon sugar that impresses sweet teeth as much as a coating of edible diamonds.
