Proper taste-bud maintenance involves applying heat at least once a month; however, using a blow-torch is not recommended. Reset tongue thermometers the safe, palatable way with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Gus’ Mexican Cantina in Franklin.
Gus’ Mexican Cantina serves up a sizzling menu of Mexican-American fare, accompanied by cool splashes from a full bar. Diners can stave off ravening appetites by heaping nachos with cheese, jalapeños, onions, tomatoes, peppers, black olives, and beef ($7.95) or chicken ($8.95). A vegetarian taco salad invites herbivorous nibbles ($6.50), and deep-fried chimichangas, loaded with meat, cheese, and sour cream and served with beans and rice, attract starved stomachs ($8.95). At the Friday fish fry, guests can take a culinary dip into the Gulf of Mexico with beer-battered cod ($10.50) paired with Gus’ specialty margarita, made with a secret recipe pinched from the files of James Bond.
In the cheerful-hued eatery or on the seasonal outdoor patio, bottomless stomachs can attempt Gus' Challenge, a 40-minute feeding frenzy on a 3-foot burrito, and winners will be showered with gifts, accolades, and the disbelieving stares of lesser burritos. A full-service bar boasts multiple TVs and a wide variety of libations.
