Like exercise, spicy food enlivens the body, releases endorphins, but is significantly hindered when paired with a gallon of milk. Enjoy unencumbered piquant eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican dinner fare at Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant in Hurst.
Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant tangos across taste buds with a menu of sizzling Tex-Mex and classic Mexican dishes. Diners can dance on the devilish side with Diablito's, hot jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese served with a side of sour cream ($8.25), or order ceviche yucateco, a fish ceviche marinated in lime juice and topped with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and avocado, to wolf whistle at blushing tonsils ($10.75). A trio of plump tamales huddle together under a cloak of chili con carne sauce ($8), and a range of dinnertime fajitas hiss and sizzle like gossipy runway models ($12.25–$24.50). The chili relleno dinner stuffs hand-battered poblano peppers with beef, chicken, or cheese ($10.25) and the gigante burrito lumbers toward starved stomachs with a hearty helping of beef or chicken, your choice of chili con carne or chili con queso (gooey, melted shredded cheese), and rice and beans ($8.25).
Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant
When they opened Miguelito's Mexican Restaurant more than 15 years ago, Michael and Gabby Nevares poured their combined years of management expertise into an eatery focused on fun and flavor. Mexican and American favorites dot the menu, including fish or brisket tacos and queso flameado, a dish of jack cheese lit tableside to melt over shrimp, chorizo, or unpaid parking tickets. American-style chicken-fried steak contrasts with classic house-made tamales or lighter entrees of grilled tilapia with cilantro rice and plantains.
Though Michael passed away in 2004, his spirit lives on at Miguelito's. The man who has rubbed elbows with Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood would surely be proud to see the M-Lounge area, which opened in 2009. Lit by funky, jeweled chandeliers, the space features six flat-screen TVs, large leather couches, and is available for private parties and events. Behind the full tiki-style bar lined with wrought-iron chairs, bartenders mix signature margaritas and pour imported and domestic brews into glasses or adult water balloons. The restaurant is open seven days a week.
