Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground-sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Satisfy your desire to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at El Jardin Restaurant in Commerce City.
Voted Best Mexican Food by Citysearchers for four years running, El Jardin features a novella of a menu packed with sizzling stomach pleasers. For starters, try the chili-con-queso dip, a mouthwatering medley of beans and green chili helplessly drowning in a steamy cup of melted cheese, only to be saved by the valiant scoops of diners equipped with a never-ending supply of fresh corn tortilla chips and machetes ($6.99). El Jardin's specialties run the gastronomical gamut of Mexican fare, including beefy flash-fried flautas ($9.59), sopapillas stuffed with chicken, lettuce, and cheese ($9.99), and lamb-strip fajitas served on a skillet with bell peppers and guacamole ($14.99). Those craving the unchicken of the sea can try El Jardin's garlic shrimp, a plate of 12 large shrimp swimming in a garlicky-butter sauce ($16.99) and those working on their fish impressions can try one of El Jardin's variations on the margarita ($4.99+).
Open Monday–Saturday at 8 a.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m., El Jardin also boasts a bounteous breakfast menu featuring hearty pleasers such as huevos rancheros ($8.99) and steak picado and eggs ($9.99). The family-owned restaurant has been serving Mexican delights since 1982 and it has added a banquet room that can seat 130 guests, meaning you can use your Groupon with family, friends, or the entire all-grown-up cast of Degrassi.
