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 $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Raul's Mexican Restaurant in West Des Moines.

Led by the Hernandez family—whose roots in Des Moines span more than 43 years—the culinary savants at Raul’s transform fresh ingredients into a full menu of classic Mexican eats. Five fillings round out the tacos, which, depending on one’s appetite or multiple stomachs, can be served in batches of two ($8.95) or three ($11.95). The aptly named El Combination Popular bands together favorites, including a flour taco, a corn enchilada, and a corn-nacho pizza ($10.25). For the huevos ranchero, chefs drape two eggs fried over-easy in a hot ranchero sauce and send them out to tables alongside warm tortillas, beef, beans, and rice ($8.95). Meanwhile, eight different beers sit on tap, and patrons can toast to their forefathers without pouring beer on a family tree by sipping Raul's Original Grandpa margarita, which brings together Cuervo Gold, triple sec, and Raul's own lime juice served on the rocks ($6.75). Savory aromas float toward vaulted ceilings inside Raul's casual dining room, which serves as a backdrop for dinner conversations with dark wood booths, striped serapes, an array of fedoras, and a stone fireplace.
