Unlike charcoal briquettes, Mexican food is delicious. For $25, today's Groupon lets you fill up on $50 worth of tacos, burritos, and inspired Mexican tastes at Las Velas. Located in downtown Pittsburgh, the ethnic eatery specializes in creatively prepared plates and tableside flambé.

Las Velas' dinner menu tempers a raging appetite by dancing a crispy tortilla flag dunked in salsa ($2.50), guacamole ($3.75), or queso ($5) in front of you. Las Velas offers a smattering of soups, starters, and salads. Try corn empanadas ($7.50) with cheese and choice of fish, fungi, chicken, or beef, or a fresh burrito salad that features everything but shell ($9.50). Main courses include personalized tacos ($9 for two), burritos ($10.50 to $13), chilaquiles al natural (tortilla chips doused in green salsa and piled high with chicken or steak, onions, cilantro, cheese, and sour cream, $12), and alambres (chicken or steak topped with grilled peppers, onions, and a heap of melted cheese, $16). The crepas Las Velas ($9.50) brings the spark tableside with ripe strawberries and bananas blazed with a sugary syrup and dosed with cognac. Spicy savories and sweets can be washed down with a house margarita ($6) or traditionally prepared mojito ($6.50).

With cuisine inspired by Mexico City and the Riviera Maya region of Mexico, the energetic restaurant boosts a lively ambience, full bar menu, and central location in historic Market Square. Enjoy complimentary parking after 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday at Kail's Parking, or create a food fiesta in the comfort of your own home and apply this Groupon toward carryout.


The Pittsburgh City Paper says:

  • The menu offers a vibrant antidote to Mexican "cuisine" mired in tired clichés of dubious origin. While authentic tacos have begun to make inroads on Pittsburgh's Mexican menus, we can think of only a couple local south-of-the-border-themed restaurants that offer the kind of interesting, authentic dishes that one can find in good Italian, Asian or contemporary American establishments. Happily, Las Velas begins to tip the balance. – Angelique Bamberg and Jason Roth

Seventy-five percent of Urbanspooners like it:

  • All I can say is: INCREDIBLE. Any fan of Mexican food, or just straight up good food, needs to go here. – AlexWander
  • …the atmosphere is awesome, the view is great, and the staff is really friendly. – Kelly
