What You'll Get
Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine Mexican cuisine at Maria Chuchena, located on North Mesa Street.
Maria Chuchena's menus feature contemporary adaptations of traditional Mexican cuisine to enchant plates, mouths, and stomachs. Drop in for lunch or dinner and dive into modern Mexican with an order of La Rosas ($7)—cheese empanadas topped with strawberry and rose petal sauce. Afternoon noshers can snack on beer-battered fish tacos ($7) or trio mixteco ($8, grilled chicken topped with a mixture of adobo, mole verde, and poblano sauces). For dinner, sink your canines into sautéed shrimp enchiladas ($11). Or experience a contemporarily meaty variation on a slow-braised favorite with duck carnitas ($15).
Maria Chuchena's elegant décor and ultra-sleek architecture mirror its cuisine, with a contemporary atmosphere that highlights its cultural roots. Settle into the forward-looking dining room to experience a meal your mouth will look back on fondly.

- I took some co workers to Maria Chuchena and it was a great experience. We were seated immediately and had incredible service the whole night. This is a restaurant to have a good time, don't go if you [sic] in a hurry and can't enjoy the environment. – Jackie H., Yelp
- The food is simply delicious! Real mexican flavors unlike the "mexican" food many people are accustomed to. The salsa is great. – Alma Valles, Urbanspoon
