Like yin and yang, Tex and Mex refer to an awesome, zen-like balance of flavor, crispness, and tightrope handstands. Balance bicuspids on exhilarating flavors with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Tex-Mex fare at Marianito's Extreme Tex-Mex Grill.
As seen on the Food Network, Marianito's Extreme Tex-Mex Grill's bevy of border bites break the boundaries established by more moderate menus. For more than two decades, the Ximenez family has enchanted Texan eaters with its bold bill of fare and breezy outdoor patio.
Shaded by red umbrellas, diners can dive into Marianito's array of audacious appetizers, including the specialty southwest cheese crisp, topped with cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses ($5.29), and mini chimi's, deep-fried tortillas filled with meat, beans, and cheese that's shrunken before it's melted (half order $5.99). Marianito's menu manifests an extreme enchilada, fried and drowned in enchilada sauce ($7.99), to go with its puffy tacos, which hide beef, chicken, guacamole, or dimes for the tooth-shaped fairy under their airy pillows (two for $6.99). Those brazen enough to bite into the extreme grizzly burrito, 7 pounds of refried beans, carne guisada, and cheese, may be refunded for their feasting if they should finish it within one hour ($31.95).
- Family owned and operated, what makes Marianito’s a great dining experience is their commitment to customer service, quality food, reasonable prices and cleanliness. What makes the restaurant different is their ability to serve traditional San Antonio style cuisine with an extreme flair. – WOAI
Marianito's Extreme Tex-Mex Grill
Marianito's owners Felix and Judy Ximenez break culinary norms by supersizing classic Tex-Mex fare that has lured in visitors from as far away as Japan and the Middle East. The eatery's signature dish, a 7-pound burrito called the Extreme Grizzly, poses a challenge that, as of 2011, had only seen three victors—finish the behemoth in an hour and it's free. Once done with their meal, eaters can scribble poetic musings or a funny caricature of their enchilada on the restaurant's Hancock-ready wall.
