The right blend of Mexican spices turns meals into fiestas and lures droves of grazing piñatas within the reach of a sturdy broomstick. Enjoy south-of-the-border zest with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican fare at El Vallarta. Choose from the following locations: Concord, Marshville, Monroe, and Waxhaw.
El Vallarta’s festively decorated eateries offer up a menu of authentic, chef-crafted Mexican standards and build-your-own combo platters. The massive Cielo, Mar, & Tierra plate ($14.95) traverses the menu’s annals by land and sea with mounds of grilled shrimp, chicken, and carne asada that captain tortilla vehicles crewed by a choice of guacamole, rice and beans, and pico de gallo. Six burritos built by the kitchen’s culinary wizards include the cheesesteak burrito ($9.75), which tempts stomachs to tackle its bursting-with-beef, rice-laden interior and make it say "uncle" before slathering it in sour cream. Tasty staples such as tamales ($6.45) and enchiladas ($6.45) supplement main courses. Drink in a chameleon-hiding-on-a-rainbow’s worth of colors in El Vallarta’s gaily decorated dining areas, where pink and yellow chairs add splashes of style to rustic, exposed-brick kitchen enclosures.
