After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of contemporary Mexican fare at El Barrio Mexican Grill, located off I-196.

With its menu of salsa-soaked burritos, sizzling fajitas, enchiladas, and tacos, El Barrio hypnotizes innocent taste buds secretly desiring contemporary Mexican fare. Nose-dive into tortilla-lined kiddie pools of savory house favorites, such as the shredded pork carnitas ($9.99), which arrive margarita-style in a salt-rimmed skillet, or the chipotle barbecue steak skewers ($12.99), a speared effusion of grilled steak strips basted with homemade Michigan-cherry- and chipotle-infused barbecue sauce. Old favorites get gourmet makeovers, such as the seafood and Spanish rice burrito ($9.59), while offerings like the Tijuana corn dogs ($7.99) and fully loaded dessert nachos ($5.99) sprinkle magical fusion dust over classic ballpark favorites. The cheery cantina also features a full bar to ease nacho after nacho down the dusty meal hatch. Break open a piñata of pabulum with the bat of your taste buds and enjoy a Mexi-meal at El Barrio Mexican grill.

El Barrio Mexican Grill

Warm, red and white tortilla chips spill forth from a basket. Slow-cooked black beans are simmered with poblano peppers and blended with spice. Aged colby cheese melts together with tender shredded pork inside a hand-rolled enchilada. Traditional ingredients, house-made with care, fill the inventive dishes at El Barrio Mexican Grill. House-made salsas, sauces, and cheese blends accompany most of the grill’s hearty fare, with deep-fried Tijuana corn dogs diving into dishes of creamy melted queso blanco and avocado-ranch dressing winding around wedges of grilled avocado inside soft flour tortillas. The specialty shredded-pork carnitas fly to tables in salt-rimmed skillets that hearken back to the full bar’s margaritas, adding to the festive, cantina-like atmosphere and spurring discussions about which ocean tastes the saltiest.
