Without tortillas, we would have to wrap our meat-vegetable combinations in colorful tissue paper, which would taste great but leave us with nothing in which to bundle our breakables except uglier, less-valuable breakables. Celebrate the china-saving splendor of a floury envelope with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at Red Cactus Restaurant.
The fast-prepping salsa sovereigns at Red Cactus grill, toss, and skillfully season fresh Mexican fare in a creative, casual eatery. Guests can gleefully witness the menu come to life at the counter, where delectably fresh ingredients are fashionably fused into burritos, tacos, and miniature Alamo replicas. Sink hungry dientes into a trio of tacos planchados, a mixture of shredded beef, refried beans, monterey jack, and cheddar cheese encased in grilled flour tortillas ($6.25). Or, jolt sleepy taste buds awake during breakfast hours (8 a.m.–11 a.m.) with a chorizo con huevo burrito, a proteinous partnership of eggs, Mexican sausage, and cheese ($3.95). Sandwich glands can be nourished with the torta, a Mexico City sub available with a choice of shredded beef, chicken tinga, or beef and chicken fajita ($5.95). During their stay, guests can smell the smattering of sauces in the air, which can be harvested and enjoyed with some of Red Cactus' homemade tortilla chips. While the open kitchen allows diners to witness the birth of each flavorful feast, salsa saboteurs should know that Red Cactus takes inspiration from family recipes before hacking the mainframe in a cunning recipe heist.
