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 $7, you get $14 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Miguel's Authentic Mexican Cuisine on West Michigan Highway.
The culinary artisans at Miguel's Authentic Mexican Cuisine dish up a multifarious menu of both authentic and American-inspired Mexican cuisine. Quash the complaints of a demanding belly with an imperious order of nachos grande ($7.50) or guacamole ($4.75), then break the resulting silence with a signature puff taco buzzing with beef, beans, or chicken slathered in salsa and cheese ($5.25–$6.75). Steaming beef, shrimp, or chicken fajitas ($11.95) saunter into exclusive mouth parties with an escort of grilled vegetable sycophants. Dishes such as the 8-ounce taco burger ($3.75) and taco pizza ($6.75) combine classic American and Mexican innovations with results that would shame any mariachi boy band. Match the meal with a refreshing lime margarita ($2.99 for a small) or icy imported brew ($2.95).
Hungry eyes can feast themselves on Miguel's boldly hued walls and red-checked floors. Hanging flowers and clean woodwork frame the restaurant's centerpiece, a festive cactus sculpture that entertains patrons with impressive feats of standing still.
