Like most modern conflicts, the rivalry between soft and hard tacos will not end until one side gets eaten by a bear. Broker a culinary truce with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Pepe and Chela's.

The chefs at Pepe and Chela's sauté Mexican cuisine and mix house-made salsa from scratch following traditional recipes. After eyes devour the menu, teeth can show tortillas who's boss by sinking in to the El Jefé burrito, which contains ground beef, chicken, or shredded steak rolling with rice, beans, and cheese ($8.75). Brandish a fork and dive in to camarones a la diabla, devilish shrimp named for the red chipotle-tomato sauce in which they swim ($11.45). Plates of fajitas Locas sizzle as chicken, beef, shrimp, or chorizo lightly dance with peppers and onions ($12.45), and Chela's t-bone travels to cuisine ports with an auxiliary vessel of green salsa ($12.45). Fingers can unclench their forks or a friend's shoes to grab slices of the Mi Amiga's quesadilla and pull away strings of monterey cheese as they cling to black beans and tomatoes ($8.75).

Pepe and Chela's

For more than 25 years, the Avila family showcased their family recipes and from-scratch salsas at Pepe and Chela's. These days, new Aliva family owners, run the Mexican eatery, though they stick closely to the Avila’s legacy. That means serving up more than 35 entrees, including the El Jefe burrito, a 12-inch flour tortilla chock-full of rice, beans, cheese, and your choice of meat.

Said entrees merely skim the surface of Pepe and Chela’s menu options, which range from tortas with housemade chorizo to fried poblano peppers stuffed with cheese. Besides continuing the tradition of from-scratch salsas, the culinary team pairs housemade chips with a signature guacamole, made from hand-selected avocados, diced tomatoes, and jalapeños. Each zesty feast unfolds amidst the restaurant's warm red walls, Spanish ceramics, and a booth reserved exclusively for Zorro.
