Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touch into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine and drinks for dine-in or carryout at La Siesta, located near Logan Airport in downtown Winthrop.
Using old family recipes, La Siesta offers fresh, homemade Mexican comfort food. Start out with chicken nachos ($7.95) and queso fundido peppered with chorizo and poblanos ($6.50), or feed a fleet of mouth ships from a la carte items, including cheese enchiladas ($2.50 each), steak tacos ($3.50 each), and chiles rellenos ($3.50 each). Special entrees such as shrimp fajitas ($14.95) and sautéed tilapia with white wine, black olives, and other veggies ($13.95) fire up tongue ovens, while deep-fried chimichangas combine shredded chicken or ground beef with pico de gallo, rice, and beans in a blanket of cheese, ranchero sauce, and sour cream ($9.95). Knock out lunchtime stomach rumbles with the huevos rancheros burrito, a combo of scrambled eggs and peppers alongside tomatoes, beans, and cheese ($5.95), or lure sweet teeth with flan and fried ice cream (both $3.95).
La Siesta's warm, inviting atmosphere is populated with tiled tables and colorful chairs atop which diners can quench their thirst with drinks from the full bar. Summer days spent lounging at La Siesta often inspire patrons to stockpile frosty margaritas for later deposit into Swiss bank accounts.
- I have yet to find anything wrong with this place. Everything is great from top to bottom: the staff, the food, the drinks, the owner – Chris D., Yelp
- The food here is always incredible. I can't say that I'm an expert on "authentic" Mexican cuisine, but everything is always very tasty, fresh, wholesome, and satisfying. – Sarah S., Yelp
- Everything we've tried so far is delicious, but no matter what you order, you have to get the flan. The owner's daughter makes it and it's the best flan I've ever had. – Ginger D., Insider Pages
