Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade school appetites. Revive shifting sustenance with today’s Groupon. For $20, you get $40 worth of Spanish and Latin cuisine at Mojitos and Tapas, located in Warrenton (about an hour from DC). This deal is not valid for Tapas Tuesdays and lunch special menus.
Mojitos &Tapas has an eclectic menu stocked with tasty tapas, Latin delicacies, and a splash of Caribbean creations. To communally dine, order a smattering of small plates, such as the Spanish beef empanada ($3.50), the spicy butterfly shrimp ($7.75), or the baby potatoes garnished in mojo sauce ($4.95). Seafood savorers can satiate themselves with grilled salmon served on a sea of yellow rice with green peppers ($17.95). The sandwich Cubano, a house specialty, is a melty blend of ham and cheese ($9.95). Mojitos & Tapas' friendly barsmiths can also concoct a myriad of Latin drinks, such as the Coco mojito with coconut rum.
Mojitos &Tapas fosters an atmosphere festive enough to match its fare. There's sizzling Latin music, walls painted in tropical colors, a lofty balcony, and splashy table designs (click here to see photos). The Havana-esque décor makes diners feel comfortable dancing the salsa or singing the “Macarena” via sign language. You must call ahead and make a reservation.

- being a resident of Warrenton, it is great to finally have some variety in where to eat. A really fun place to come with friends for some drinks and tapas. – stealtheatz, Northern Virginia Magazine
- Mojitos were GREAT. I loved la pina. I would order that by the pitcher if I could. I sampled the Cuban pork and the beef empenadas (off the tapas menu). Both were good. The Cuban beef had a good flavor. – Jay G., Yelp
