A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $7, you get $15 worth of savory Mexican fare from El Fresco Mexican Grill in Chantilly. This Groupon is valid for dine-in and take-out orders only.
The gracious gastronomic engineers at El Fresco Mexican Grill believe firmly that the finest flavors emerge from hand-slicing and hand-crafting their dishes with fresh ingredients. Tasty, generous portions lumber throughout its expansive menu. Homemade salsa and chips come complimentary but could stand a visit from the colorful guacamole ($1.75). Boneless, hand-cut juicy chicken resides inside each chicken-taco platter ($6.95), and every full-flavored soft taco de pollo asado ($2.25). Domesticated cheese, beans, and spinach are at your mouth's command in the veggie quesadilla ($6.49).
Mosey on over around lunch time (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) to treat yourself to lunch specials such as the $4.76 combo, which affords two tacos, two enchiladas, or one burrito, each option outfitted with all the fixings plus chips, salsa, and a soft drink. Friendly service behind the counter keeps customers at ease in El Fresco's clean, welcoming storefront, where dishes are served quickly without sacrificing quality or using a compressed-air meal gun.
