Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $4, you get $8 worth of fresh Mexican fare at El Fuego Mexican Grill in Wakefield.
El Fuego is a brightly colored, festive BYOB cantina that offers a simple menu of fresh South-borderly fare. Tasty tacos (chicken, beef, fish, or turkey, $2.50+) can be paired up with cheesy grilled quesadillas ($4.99+), loaded nachos ($6.99+), salads ($5.99+), and stuffed burritos ($5.99+) for a dynamic taste duo. For a simple serving of spice, opt for a Caribbean-seasoned fish taco ($3.75), or indulge a heartier hankering with the El Fuego Winnebago—shredded chicken and either grilled steak or ground beef—swaddled in a tortilla blanket with fresh veggies, two kinds of cheese, rice, guacamole, and sour cream, tucked away in its insides ($7.75+). Layered tacos, one of the restaurant's signature offerings, wrap a hardened taco shell in the skin of a soft taco shell ($3.75) and serve as suitable sustenance for surfers who wash up on the eatery's banks.
El Fuego Mexican Grill
Voted South County’s best Mexican restaurant by Rhode Island Monthly readers every year since 2010, El Fuego Mexican Grill boasts a BYOB policy and a menu packed with specialty burritos, tacos, and quesadillas. Some burritos stay classic—like the one stuffed with grilled steak, black beans, cheese, rice, sour cream, lettuce, and tomato—while others take a tasty twist, like the ranchero, which subs in ranch dressing and barbecue sauce for the standard sour cream. The counter-service restaurant strives to provide friendly customer service during quick meals packed with fresh ingredients.
