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 authentic Mexican cuisine at La Margarita on North Meridian Street. Choose between the following two meal options:
- $7 for $15 worth of lunch
- $15 for $30 worth of dinner
La Margarita has been serving up authentic Mexican fare on the north side of Indianapolis for more than 20 years. Commence noontime feeding with lunch options such as a small side of guacamole ($3.25) or a bowl of tortilla soup ($3.95). Main dishes such as the burrito Azteca celebrate the ancient civilization's advances in genetic splicing with a double-stuffed tortilla, which features pork and green salsa on one end, and spicy chicken on the other ($9.95). Diners who prefer to keep their food groups separate can try the house-named la margarita, a platter with two tacos and an enchilada, rice, and beans ($7.95), or the el matador, a killer chicken, beef, or bean burrito, accompanied by a side of rice and beans ($7.25) and served by a stampeding waiter who must be lanced by a spork before giving up your delicious entree.
Dinner welcomes back lunchtime favorites while adding new platters like the mole poblano, which bathes tender chicken in an authentic unsweetened Mexican chocolate bath ($10.95), and tamales, homemade concoctions of shredded beef and cornmeal steamed in cornhusks ($10.95). Shrimp tequila takes advantage of the briny creatures' low tolerance to lure them into a boiling pot of creamy sauce, sautéed jalapeños, and avocado before serving them alongside Mexican potatoes ($14.75), and pollo en salsa fresca takes advantage of a chicken's naturally low self esteem to convince it to arrive grilled in a low-fat, lemon pepper seasoning ($11.25). The warm and cheerful dining room is decorated with touches of authentic flair. Guests should be aware that the restaurant is smoke-free, lest they risk spilling their drink while getting kicked by an enraged surgeon-general.
