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 $7, you get $14 worth of Mexican cuisine at Felipe's Jr. Mexican Restaurant.
Family owned for 40 years, Felipe's Jr. Mexican Restaurant sates south-of-the-border cravings with a menu of award-winning edibles. The Guadalajara plate ($13.50) stuffs two cheese enchiladas, one bean tostada, and a pork burrito with a side of rice and beans onto plates instead of diners’ back pockets. Patrons can begin meals by tongue-wrestling a batch of five cream-cheese- or cheddar-stuffed jalapeño poppers ($4.95). After ordering the king-size taco, guests chomp and crunch their way through a tortilla stuffed with chili verde, ground beef, and beans ($10.50). The house fajitas present crackling hot meats such as beef, chicken, shrimp, or carnitas sizzling atop corn or flour tortillas topped with fresh vegetables ($13.25). Instead of attempting to lick a garden sprinkler, guests can quench fiery thirsts with the restaurant's Cazuela drinks, served in traditional Mexican clayware with a selection of fresh fruits.
Felipe's Jr. Mexican Restaurant
While comfortably seated between brightly colored walls, diners at Felipe’s Mexican Restaurant enjoy the sensory stimulation of eating outdoors. Sunlight streams in from a skylight, washing over tables forming cozy clusters and beaming onto plants forming an impromptu barbershop quartet. Open since 1971, the eatery was voted Best Mexican Restaurant by readers of the Wichita Eagle from 2008 to 2011. Though it shares a menu with its sister restaurant, the kitchen here specializes in queso primo, a dip made with white cheese, spinach, and pimiento.
