Today’s spicy Groupon invites you to a sultry south-of-the-border rendezvous at a hotel made out of Chihuahua cheese. For $25, you’ll get $50 worth of traditional Mexican tastes at La Sandía, an ethnic eatery from famed restaurateur and Denver magazine’s 2009 Person of Power Richard Sandoval.
The modern restaurant follows suit with Sandoval’s signature culinary style: a playful décor (clementine-toned walls, bright accents, expansive patio seating) and a game-changing menu that will make you think you're playing basketball until you see your fork and knife and realize you're playing the most delicious game of all—eating. Dip into the queso fundido ($7.95), a melty mash-up of authentic Oaxaca, Gouda, and Chihuahua cheeses served with warm tortillas and chile morita salsa. Move on to main courses including fajitas (chose from chicken, shrimp, skirt steak, vegetarian, or try a combination platter, $13.95–$16.95). Pair dishes with a selection from La Sandía's margarita menu or list of Latin libations such as the refreshing caipirinha ($7) or fruit-filled sangria ($7 glass, $26 pitcher). La Sandía also serves a wide variety of tequilas.
This Groupon is only good for dinner (4 p.m. to close). La Sandía is open Sunday through Thursday until 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 10 p.m. Get this Groupon for a multisensory celebration of food and flare, or as an affordable upgrade from your tired, yellow-boxed taco night.

- We've been to La Sandia in Stapleton Northfield a few times. I've always seen something else different on the menu to order, and I've never been disappointed. – croeder6000, Citysearch
