Like soap operas, Mexican cuisine engages audiences with passionate presentation, irresistible tidbits, and cheesy dinner dates. Satisfy hunger's secret desires with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine and drinks at Dora's Mexican Restaurant and Lounge. Armed with more than 30 years of culinary expertise, Chef Dora and her dedicated staff sizzle meats and seafood into authentic Mexican specialties and stir refreshing margaritas to accompany them. Dora's lunch and dinner menus teem with grilled game hidden in palate-protecting tortillas. Customizable wraps ($7.29+) and fiery fajitas ($11.99+) in carnivore-friendly or vegetarian varieties make midday meals more option-filled than a choose-your-own-adventure grocery list. Savor evening eats, such as a 9-ounce mexican steak heaped with jalapeños, onions, and chili peppers ($15.99) or succulent jumbo shrimp snugly bundled in a wind-resistant parka of monterey jack cheese and bacon ($14.99). Diners coming in for a colorful, icy margarita can kick back and enjoy their drink while surrounded by Dora's stone décor, which emulates a rustic Mexican villa.
Dora's Mexican Restaurant & Lounge
Honing their skills in professional kitchens for more than 30 years, Dora and her family shuffled through a few different culinary homes before stumbling on a vacant building. Realizing the potential this raw space could have after a little love, the family renovated the space and transformed it into the present-day Dora's Mexican Restaurant & Lounge. Dora's tight-knit staff is composed of family and friends, some who have worked at the restaurant since its opening in 1994; the team tirelessly churns out Dora's authentic Mexican family recipes to the appreciation of a loyal following of customers and hopeful pups in nearby backyards. Hefty portions populate both lunch and dinner menus, including traditional chimichangas, tamales, and goblets of the restaurant's iconic, ever-popular margaritas, which patrons can sip in a spacious dining room that pays homage to the vibrant exterior architecture of Mexico with bright, coral-color walls.
