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 Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant in Charlottesville.
The culinary doyens of Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant populate their expansive menu and combination plates with a scintillating selection of authentic recipes from beyond the Rio Grande. Lay the foundation for a feast with an order of nachos coated in cheese ($4.75), beans ($4.95), or beef ($5.25), before mouth-wrestling an ebullient chef's special such as the special Yucatan ($14.75), which intermingles slices of grilled steak and chicken breast with lemon-pepper shrimp and chorizo. The Vallarta's batch of mesquite-grilled shrimp with mushrooms, onions, peppers, and zucchini ($11.35) creates a sizzly foreground for flirting with a first date or coy ventriloquist dummy, and the enchilada supreme ($8.25) boasts a quartet of tortillas, each stuffed with one of the four elements of the earth: chicken, beef, beans, and cheese. Guadalajara balances a spicy repast with a sugary dessert of churros drizzled with chocolate sauce ($2.95) or fried ice cream ($4.10).
