Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Montezuma Mexican Restaurant in the Kingsbridge area of the Bronx. Check out its Facebook page for more information.
Inside the vibrant restaurant, authentic Mexican fare shares the sensory stage with live mariachi music. The menu sizzles with such Southwest classics as deep-fried taquitos ($5.95), chalupas covered in guacamole ($5.95), and caldo de pollo, where rice and noodles see who can hold their breath the longest in a chicken-broth reservoir ($4.95). Feast eyes and fill forks with tender steak fajitas ($18.95) or grab a plate of chicken simmered in chocolate mole sauce and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds ($15.95). Mix and match your own combo plate by marrying a starry-eyed tostada and burrito ($9.95) or opt for the beef quesadilla combo special, which amalgamates a beef-filled tortilla, guacamole, rice, and beans in your mouth’s chemistry set ($11.95). Tipplers can fuel up with potent potables from the full bar, including icy frozen margaritas.
