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 authentic Mexican cuisine and drinks at La Estrellita. Your Groupon is redeemable for dine-in or take-out at either the Brighton or the Westminster location of the family-owned and family-operated eatery, which was nominated by CityVoters for Best Mexican 2009.
La Estrellita has been serving up mouth-watering Mexican fare to area residents for more than 20 years. Start with an order of the mexi rolls ($7.50–$8.50), a family creation of ground beef and pico de gallo wrapped in an egg roll and deep fried, or share a plate of spicy chicken wings ($8–$8.50) coated in the family’s award-winning sauce. Main courses such as crab and spinach enchiladas ($9–$10) or spicy fish tacos (jalapeño-marinated tilapia grilled with caramelized onions, $10) are sure to please aquaphiles, while a combination plate such as the costillas adobadas (country-style ribs served with rice and beans, $10–$11) will satisfy even the most insatiable talking plant. Most of La Estrellita’s entrees can be served vegetarian upon request, much to the delight of vegetarians and those who derive energy through photosynthesis. Conclude any meal as sweetly as a Marlon Brando after-school special with an order of the dessert nachos ($6–$6.29) or one of La Estrellita’s 15+ margarita flavors (starting at $5.50).
The friendly staff at La Estrellita help create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and the eatery serves up breakfast all day, so you can nosh on huevos rancheros while recovering from a Siberian fishing excursion. Lasso up a group of spice-deprived scuba divers and head down to the La Estrellita near you for festive fare and lively conversation about the sneaky nature of the ocean’s cephalopods.
