Corn was brought in from the wild and domesticated not with whips and traps but by whipping and trapping any bird that knew where the wild corn grew. Enjoy the fruits of ancient farmers' labors with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare at Maiz Antojitos Y Bebidas in Humboldt Park.

Maiz Antojitos Y Bebidas' menu celebrates maiz—corn—in all its sweet, savory, and kerneled goodness. Corn-husk tamal wraps your choice of meat, veggies, or seafood, as well as lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and a dollop of fresco cheese, in a corncob's warm jacket ($5.75). Molotes de Tinga, corn dough stuffed with chicken and fried brown ($4.75), and Elote Con Queso y Crema, a boiled corn dish peppered with chile piquin ($3.75), prove that corn's flavors thrive in even the harshest conditions. Between spiced bites, drink in the festive surroundings—avocado-hued walls and soothing artwork —while sipping a saucy beer concoction known as a Michelada ($5.75) or indulging in a dessert such as Crepas de Cajeta, Mexican crepes topped with caramelized goat's milk and chopped walnuts ($5.75).

  • REALLY great food and drinks: homemade tortillas, phenom queso fundido (loved the bistec encebollado), chilaquiles. And you've GOT to try "The Bull"...tasty rum/beer/lime cocktail in a monster glass. – Laura N., Yelp
  • I just enjoyed everything, the welcoming feel, food and the drinks. A complete dining experience. Really...you need to eat and drink here! – gr., Yelp
