Regularly eating spicy fare is a great way to expand your tongue's horizons and prepare for your family's annual lava-chugging competition. Immerse your mouth in zesty flavors with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of multinational fare at Margs Taco Bistro.
Margs' menu showcases a worldly twist on tacos as well as locally sourced tortilla chips and fresh salsas. In the Margs Casa plate, a palate-prepping prelude of homemade starters and hand-pressed tortillas can take a dip into Margs' pico de gallo or double as makeshift envelopes; international trappings spicy up an à la carte taco ($2.75) or a two-taco platter ($6.50). Tortilla parachutes bring base-jumping seasoned chicken and thrill-seeking peanut sauce with citrus-basil spread to a soft landing in the asian blend taco, and the caribbean jerk taco perks up pulled pork with refreshing bursts of pineapple-habanero salsa and a dash of kosher salt. Sink smiles into meatless shelled wonders such as the belle taco, packed with portobellos, creamy carolina slaw, and sliced avocado.
A hunger-bolstering house margarita ($4) and 43 tequilas are on hand to whet whistles parched from feasting or hours of open-mouthed sun bathing. Enjoy a sweet ending of caramel drizzled sopaipillas in Margs' cozy bistro environs or on the fresh-air-laden outdoor patio.
Marg's Taco Bistro
Fresh from their successful founding and franchising of the Smiling Moose Deli, local restaurateurs Kevin Sloane and brothers Bryan and Kevin Brutsch have tackled a new project: experimenting with what international influences can fit into a taco tortilla. Each freshly made tortilla arrives filled with treasures from disparate and delicious cuisines, such as spicy chicken vindaloo, slow-roasted Mexican carnitas, or Caribbean jerk pulled pork. Garnishes and sides add a splash of color, texture, and intense flavor, from the housemade guacamole and pico de gallo to the cripsy slaw blends and jicama.
A laid-back vibe permeates through Marg's LoDo and Cherry Creek restaurants, thanks to cool green walls, rustic wood accents, and generous patio seating. Diners share a leisurely hour or two among friends, with no need to don a blazer or formal taco bib, while sipping margaritas spruced up with herbs from the restaurant mini garden.
