Ever since Arizona and Mexico became neighbors last year, Phoenix residents have sought out the mythical restaurant that fuses the two cultures' cuisines together. Today's side deal ends the search with $10 worth of happy-hour drinks and Latin-Southwestern fusion fare for $3 at Fuego Bistro. This Groupon is good for happy-hour specials only, offered Tuesday through Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the bar, dining room, or patio.
Fuego's happy hour offers 20 menu items for $5 each, as well as $3 beers and $5 mojitos, sangria, margaritas, Mai Tais, and house wine. To weigh you down between tipples, try out ropa sliders and pernil nachos, or satisfy a sweet tooth with tres leches cake. Vegetarian tostadas, barbecue pork quesadillas, meatloaf sliders, and banana burritos are all worthy pairing for a well-muddled mojito.
Fuego also hosts live music on the patio every Friday and Saturday night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. After a night of cool breezes, spicy food, hot music, and mojitos, Fuego will magically transform your spouse, boyfriend, or boy friend who thinks he's your boyfriend into the hot-blooded, nimble-hipped, bullfighting Latin lover of the dreams of 17% of the world's population.
- The perfect mojito is light and refreshing, with a sweet overtone that masks the kick of the rum. That's why we love the Prickly Pear version at Fuego Bistro, in central Phoenix. – Phoenix New Times
- Deliciousness! The service was excellent! The owner was on out the floor - serving and interacting with the customers...gotta love that! He also gave us suggestions for apps, meals, and drinks - all were perfect! – lauranalex, Citysearch
- The live music and seating in the patio provides a great atmosphere making you feel whisked away to places far away. – rhay, Urbanspoon

Flavors from Oaxaca, Cuba, and Yucatan add depth to the menus at Fuego Bistro restaurants, three gourmet Mexican oases that pride themselves on their modern culinary touches. Among the warm reds and yellows and inviting black wicker chairs at the original Fuego Bistro, diners dig into ancho-dusted salmon croquettes and a seafood chili relleno with lobster cream-chili sauce.
