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 deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican fare at El Arroyo. This Groupon can be redeemed at either the Fort Worth or Arlington location.
A Texas institution, El Arroyo masterfully baits hungry diners with delectably authentic Mexican fare. El Arroyo’s menu satisfies voracious meal-mingling appetites with filling plates of carnitas ($9), savory flautas ($8), fish tacos ($8.50), or the sauce-laden barbecue chicken enchiladas ($8). A bevy of burger options include the strike-worthy 8-ounce Bowling Alley burger ($7). For something sweeter, try the classic sopapillas ($2), fried ice cream ($3), or tres-leches cake ($4). Or get tropical and guide tongues over the fresh-fruit bowl ($2). El Arroyo also treats diners to a lively outdoor patio and occasional live music, just like business-class flights to Australia on the airline your friend Dave built in his backyard.
