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 at El Norteño, located in Snow Heights. Warm, friendly service welcomes diners to an extensive menu packed with flavorful, genuine, and award-winning Mexican delicacies and tasty reimaginings of ancient recipes. Pair a spicy specialty such as the cheese-stuffed chiles rellenos with one of the restaurant’s myriad south-of-the-border beers. Or cap off the traditional Mayan cochinita pibil’s tender steamed pork with the sweet, luscious pastel de tres leches, a layered cake topped with whipped cream. See the menu for more pricing.
Must purchase at least one food item in order to purchase alcohol.
- From the fresh chips and salsa through chicken mole and cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork) to pastel de tres leches (three-milk cake) for dessert, the kitchen continues to show its steady hand---and its commitment is only reinforced by engaged (if not always zippy) service. If you’ve got a taste for adventure, try the tacos de lengua (tongue), washed down with horchata or a cantaloupe liquado (milkshake). – Gayot
