Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Fuego Cantina in bustling Five Points South.
Fuego Cantina's menu packs picante punches with its selection of burritos, tacos, wings, and more. Wrap hands or prehensile trowels around a tender steak supreme burrito ($10.95), or profess a toothy fondness for the veggie burrito's edible entourage of Mexican rice, black beans, queso, and a slew of vegetables ($9.95). Fuego Cantina's tacos, such as the Baja fish ($7.45), come in pairs for more gregarious dining, while the half-pound foot-long Nathan's hot dog ($8.95+) and a selection of specialty burgers sate singular cravings.
Meals come to completion with Fuego's satisfying array of cervezas, margaritas, and mojitos, along with its saccharine selection of desserts, including chocolate chimichangas. Diners can take their meals onto the patio to catch glimpses of impending solar storms or stay inside the cantina's exhilarating halls to witness live music Wednesday through Saturday.
Whether amongst the cantina's chandeliers, the saloon's rustic surrounds, or the outdoor patio's crackling fire, guests at Fuego Cantina can savor a bevy of Mexican cuisine seven days a week—and until 2 a.m. on Monday through Saturday. Seasoned chefs cover hand-rolled enchiladas in house-made sauce, mix house-marinated meats into fajitas, and fill quesadillas with fixings such as grilled Portobello mushrooms and caramelized onions. Along with Mexican items, the inventive kitchen captains also smother half-pound hot dogs with relish and sauerkraut and top burgers with house-made chili and sharp cheddar cheese.
To wash down feasts, bartenders at Fuego Cantina's two bars keep 14 beers on tap and pour more than 30 wines by the glass. They also mix up specialty mojitos, margaritas, and martinis, such as the combined chocolate ganache and Godiva liqueur of the Death by Chocolate. In addition to tasty treats and drinks, Fuego Cantina enlivens evenings with karaoke on Tuesdays, pin-the-tail-on-the-cacti on Thursdays, and live music throughout the week.
