La Mestiza - Multiple Locations: $12 for $25 Worth of Mexican Cuisine and Drinks at La Mestiza

After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at La Mestiza. You’ll be able to use your Groupon at either the Odana Road or Main Street location.

Whipping up deftly crafted regional Mexican dishes, owner Antonio Estrada melds myriad traditional recipes into one delectably eclectic menu. Sample a gastronomic gamut of nation-neighboring cuisine by savoring entrees such as the pollo en manchamanteles (a stew of assorted meat, chilies, vegetables, and fruits, $12.99), chiles rellenos de queso (cheese-filled peppers, $13.59), or enchiladas pollo con mole (chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, $11.99). Pair potent flavors with conversation-lubricating drinks such as the house margarita ($6) or sangria ($5.50). Then, top a rib-sticking meal with a dessert such as the flan de Kahlua ($4.59) before making a grand exit by somersaulting out a window directly onto a parked horse.

Both La Mestiza locations have vibrant atmospheres, so soak in the veritable rainbow of colors without painfully stubbing toes on inconveniently placed pots of gold. A variety of aromatic scents completes the authentic south-of-the-border dining experience.

Reviews

The A.V. Club Madison, Madison magazine, and the Daily Page featured La Mestiza. Yelpers give the Odana Road location an average of four stars, and 84% of Urbanspooners also recommend that location:

  • The draw is in the quality ingredients powering Mestiza's shrimp-centric ceviche, slow-cooked banana-wrapped pork, and chile rellenos stuffed with Chihuahua cheese. – Adam Powell, A.V. Club Madison
  • Just off the Square, the new La Mestiza is more restaurante than taqueria. Here you will discover dishes rarely found outside of Mexico’s finer cocinas. The menu does include old favorites like tacos and enchiladas, but everything from guacamole to très leches receives extraordinary attention to detail. – Dan Curd, Madison

La Mestiza

Like many Mexicans, owner Antonio Estrada considers himself a Mestiza, which means that his lineage consists of both European and American Indian people from many different regions. To pay homage to this eclectic heritage, he not only draws upon traditional family recipes from his own family, but from culinary traditions all around Mexico. Using fresh ingredients, the chefs at La Mestiza craft a lineup of classic dishes, including poblano and cheese quesadillas and juicy carne asada steaks. To add to the authenticity, they make their own homemade tortilla chips and tamales the old-fashioned way—forging them in the searing, cauldron-like trumpet bells of ancient Mariachi bands.

The festive dining room’s warm orange and yellow walls serve as roosts for pieces of art, which gaze down at flower-topped tables illuminated by hanging lights.
