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. Today's Groupon proves there are many other uses, too: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh, Latin-style fare and drinks at Fajitas Grill, located on the East Side by the corner of Farwell Avenue and Brady Street.
A mix of updated and classic Mexican-style dishes, Fajitas Grill's menu is stuffed with homemade, fresh ingredients and made-from-scratch tortillas. Chef Arturo Napoles cooks up starters like the queso fundido, a melted combination of Chihuahua and Oaxaca cheeses ($7), as well as shrimp cazuela, a spicy union of garlic and huajillo-pepper sauce with sautéed shrimp ($8). Fajitas attract taste buds with several sizzling options, which include pork with roasted pineapple ($16), veggies sautéed with garlic and olive oil ($15), and sautéed bacon with chicken or steak ($17). All entrees are paired with homemade tortillas, refried beans, and either Cuban or Mexican rice for a pillowy food mattress.
Sleek and modern, Fajitas Grill's interior also features retro accents for a low-key, yet trendy vibe suitable for rappers in a witness-protection program. Finish off the meal with freshly made churros rolled in cinnamon and sugar and served with two Bailey's Irish Cream hot-chocolate shooters ($7), or just douse your palate with a fire hose of multi-flavored margaritas and mojitos. This Groupon is good for dine-in only. Fajitas Grill is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
