Going out for Mexican food is easier than preparing it at home, which requires the ability to itch an eyelid with your tongue while chopping jalapeños. Revel in authentic Mexican fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant in Tacoma.
Crowned the Weekly Volcano 2010 Tournament of the Tacos champion, the award-winning Moctezuma’s tantalizes taste buds with an extensive menu of bodacious burritos, crisp tacos, and sizzling fajitas. The talented chefs unfurl favorites, such as the pescado al ajo, seasoned mahi-mahi pan-fried in garlic butter ($13.99). The Mexico City tacos, which include the fire-swallowing carne asada ($13.49), star a trio of shrink-zapped corn tacos served on a taco holder and hand fed by the waitstaff. Diners can nosh on meat-free fare in the form of spinach-portobello enchiladas ($11.99), or interview a variety of comestibles to dwell on the same plate, including chile rellenos, enchiladas, tamales, and tostadas ($10.99 for two, $11.99 for three). The tequila flaming fajitas, an agglomeration of sirloin steak, marinated chicken, and tiger shrimp ($16.99), is flamed tableside with gold tequila and an eternal flame. Customers 21 and up will also receive a complimentary margarita shooter.
