A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw eggs and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Tex-Mex fare at Maggie Rita's Mexican Kitchen.

Maggie Rita's Mexican Kitchen’s extensive menu conciliates spice-starved tongues with colorful, heaping plates of Texas tastes blended with tortilla-swaddled and Mexican classics. Ambrosial starters fan out to prep mealtime mouths, with the ranch-accessorized dos camarones, shrimp arriving flanked by monterey jack and crispy jalapeños cohorts ($8.99). The coy whisper of Rico's fajitas ($14.99–$27.99) sizzling through the room primes taste buds for four proteins sandwiched between hand-forged tortillas. Summon a spread of corn-constructed las flautas ($8.25), satisfying yowling hunger pangs or building tableside dioramas of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. A cavalcade of soup enraptures empty bellies, led by pesce-laden ceviche ($9.50) zested with jalapeños and chipotle cocktail sauce. Dinner's denouement arrives with feathery sopapillas ($1.50–$4.99) coddled by cinnamon, honey, and a ghost cowboy’s knowing wink.

Maggie Rita’s Mexican Kitchen

Carlos Mencia, the owner of Maggie Rita’s Mexican Kitchen, has his face emblazoned across menus tinged with Mexican, Spanish, South American, and Texan culinary traditions. In ceviche, a traditional Peruvian dish, citric acid from lemons or limes cooks cubes of white fish infused with the flavors of spices and peppers. Empanadas burst open, spilling steam and revealing spicy mango and pork. The Tex-Mex influences shine in enchiladas, burritos or tacos, corn tortillas that cradle roasted pork or beef fajitas. Traditional Tex-Mex ingredients, from poblano peppers to cream sauces infused with cilantro and jalapeño, fill the plates of diners and the briefcases of lawyers who don’t mind not being prepared for a trial.
