Early settlers of Mexico desired its land for the vast fields rich with corn, corn tortillas, and the country's most valuable natural resource, kindness. Celebrate the soil's many gifts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and cocktails at Las Margaritas on Republic Road.
Las Margaritas, with its colorful, vibrantly lit interior, plays host to a lengthy lineup of traditional Mexican fare. Teach taste buds to salsa with the Fajitas Mexicanas—a sizzling platter of grilled beef, chicken, chorizo, and nopales stepping in time with tortillas and a few scoops of sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo ($17.99 for two)—or try enchiladas de camarones, which are composed of grilled shrimp, monterrey jack cheese, and piquant ranchero sauce ($9.49). Parched patrons and prideful partiers alike can complement any meal with an array of specialty cocktails, many of which are splashed with lovely liquids including 100% real fruit juice, Patron, and Cointreau.
When you order guacamole at Las Margaritas, you aren’t just asking for the avocado-based chip dip; you’re asking for a spectacle. That’s because the staff brings the entire guacamole-making production to your table, mashing together the ingredients in front of you and delivering the tasty concoction as freshly as if the kitchen had an avocado tree growing in the sink. This dedication to fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine sums up Las Margaritas, where chefs make salsas by hand daily and churn out favorites such as chimichangas, tacos, enchiladas, and burritos.
The menu also includes more innovative dishes, such as pork-and-pineapple-filled tacos and the camarones tocineta—cheese-stuffed shrimp that are wrapped in bacon and topped with a pork rind whittled into a bow. A chilly margarita quells any spicy main course and incorporates only natural ingredients to flavor its pomegranate, peach, mango, and pineapple varieties.
