Salsa can turn simple corn chips into an appetizer, just as an engagement ring hidden in salsa can turn a routine dinner into an emergency trip to the dentist. Relish in the unexpected with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Mexican Fare
During lunch, chefs dress beef or chicken enchiladas huatusquenas in hot chipotle sauce ($5.50) and cover fried chimichangas suizas in a blanket of melted cheese ($6.75). Beginning at 3 p.m., dinner unfolds into an expanded cache of enchiladas ($10.25), broiled and sautéed shrimp dishes ($15.25), and steaks such as the bistec tres huastecas ($15), crowned with guajillo and pasilla sauces, mushrooms, and zucchini. Groupon holders who stop in Sunday–Thursday get a complimentary guacamole appetizer. See the full lunch and dinner menus.
El Torero Restaurant & Bar
Since 1979, a collection of family chefs has filled El Torero Restaurant & Bar's dining room with the aromas of authentic Mexican cuisine. Equipped with a catch of fresh ingredients, chefs drizzle chicken with special mole, green, and garlic sauces, and broil prime skirt steak before topping it with zucchini or poblano peppers. In the construction of their fleet of specialty enchiladas, cooks sauté shrimp and melt savory cheeses before en-rainbowing the whole ensemble with colorful veggies.
Outside the kitchen, bartending brethren supplement bites with margaritas forged from 100% agave tequila, and fruit cocktails concocted from the likes of Curacao and amaretto. Tall, vibrant purple booths cradle patrons more effectively than a robotic grandmother, and floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate gentle pastel-yellow walls.
