What You'll Get
A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican cuisine at Mondo Burrito in Santa Clara.
A 2010 SFGate BayList nominee for Best Burrito, Mondo Burrito crafts custom-made Mexican dishes from high-quality ingredients right before your eyes. The menu features boneless, skinless chicken breast, as well as choice beef carefully trimmed from cows fresh from their Venice Beach workouts. For meat-eschewing herbivores, Mondo makes its refried beans and spanish rice from scratch with no meat products, as well as guacamole from 100% avocados. From the comfort of the enclosed outdoor patio, you can gorge on tortilla chips made fresh several times a day, which arrive surrounded by an entourage of five types of salsa. Save a stomach corner for a house-specialty wet burrito, such as a large Mondo Meato burrito drenched in your choice of red enchilada, chili verde, or vegetarian ranchera sauces ($6.75, $0.99 extra for wet option). Otherwise, erase the work week's memories of coworkers asking you to sign their rash with the $1 beers, $2 Coronas, and $2 margaritas during Mondo's Friday Late Night Happy Hour.

About Mondo Burrito
At Mondo Burrito, cooks prepare every menu item in front of your eyes. They squash avocados to make guacamole, deep-try tortillas to create chips, and hand-trim each cut of meat to minimize fat. Although they take pride in their simmered pork tacos and mahi-mahi burritos, they also prepare several vegetarian dishes, such as grilled veggie burritos and cheese quesadillas. To elevate the dining experience, the restaurant’s hosts seat guests in an air-conditioned dining room or at an enclosed outdoor patio.
