Like tortoises, taco fillings seek shelter in hard shells when threatened and handily defeat rabbits in footraces. Savor tacos' slow and steady charms with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Tex-Mex fare at Fuzzy’s Tacos on University Avenue.
Fuzzy’s Tacos, a Texas chain that has expanded to 30 stores in three states, slings Tex-Mex favorites in a festive, flat-screen TV-festooned atmosphere. The fresh and feisty offerings include a variety of baja tacos loaded with savory fillings that include fish, shrimp, garlic shredded beef, and grilled veggies ($1.99 each). The fajita plate—a rainbow burst of three tortillas, guacamole, lettuce, sour cream, cheese, and pico de gallo—includes two sides, such as latin-fried potatoes or refried beans ($7.99), as do all Fuzzy's Mexican dinners. Early morning-risers and breakfast-for-dinner adherents rejoice in all-day offerings of chorizo, egg, and cheese burritos ($4.99) and bacon, egg, and cheese tacos ($1.99). Although this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, the taco joint serves thirst-quenching beers and salt-rimmed margaritas.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop
If it weren’t for father-son duo Alan and Chuck Bush, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop might’ve closed its doors permanently in 2003. Instead, the two bought the restaurant from its then-owner, transforming the flagship Fort Worth location from faltering to bustling. They slowly started to franchise locations across the country, and, now, 42 restaurants dot seven states. Each one serves up a menu of Baja-style Mexican food, including jumbo burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and fajitas.
