Get a sailor's worth of energizing Tex-Mex cuisine with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and nonalcoholic drinks at Nuevo León on 6th Street in the East End.
Rachel Davila has been combining personal hospitality with a menu of home-style Tex-Mex cuisine at Nuevo León since 1982. The super chile con queso ($8.49) adds a cape of taco meat and x-ray vision guacamole to the original chile con queso (small, $3.99). In the shrimp saltillo ($17.99), grilled shrimp rest in a special sauce flanked by two cheese and bean flautas, a cheese enchilada, and guacamole salad. Dent into the Nuevo León burrito ($8.69, $9.89 with carne guisada), a giant flour tortilla stuffed with beef and beans and smothered in chili con carne with a scoop of guacamole salad, so big even modern-day Paul Bunyan feels intimidated.
Breakfast is served all day (starting at 9 a.m. on Sunday and 11 a.m. Monday–Saturday), so enjoy a Breakinner of Migas ($6.39), scrambled eggs with grilled tomatoes, onions, and corn tortillas, topped with Spanish sauce and cheese, and served with beans and papas, potatoes equally delicious to fathers and child-free wayfarers alike. The top-quality Wisconsin cheese in the cheese enchiladas ($7.99) makes it a tri-regional Tex-Mex-Wisc delicacy. Live music on Wednesday nights gets guests moving and chips dancing with the complimentary salsa. Dine indoors or consider the shape of the clouds out on the patio, which is decked out with cooling fans and contemporary chrome and orange décor.
