Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Mexico Lindo.
Mexico Lindo fosters enjoyable outings of casually fine dining with a menu of Mexican fare handmade from fresh ingredients. Begin a culinary journey with the empanadas, which wrap up chicken in a blanket of masa and lay it to rest on a bed of lima-bean puree before blanketing it in salsa roja and reading it a bedtime story ($6.50). The pollo boracho enjoys a deliciously besotted carousal in a spicy wine-and-beer marinade ($12.50), and the carnitas lounge in slow-roasted bliss alongside helpings of nopalitos ($11.75). Meanwhile, the bone-in chicken mole melds the disparate worlds of dinner and Candy Land with a rich sauce offering hints of chocolate flavor ($12.50). As they sample masterfully crafted dishes, diners can sip tasty beverages such as the Mexico Lindo margarita ($16), a feisty blend of Patron Silver, Citronage, orange juice, and Gran Gala served in an 18-ounce goblet.
Like a terry-cloth opera cloak, the stylish scenery at Mexico Lindo cultivates a refined comfort. Inside, guests lounge among the restaurant's warm, old-school Mexican décor, watching the bar area's flat-screen TVs, while outdoor eaters dine on the open patio, drinking in the splendor of the fresh air and views of Silver Creek's scenic hills.
