Tacos, like middle-school backpacks, are admired for their portability, tasty fillings, and ability to ward off hungry packs of bullies with one strike to the stomach. Protect yourself against unruly children with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of savory Mexican fare at Rivera's Mexican Grill and Market. This Groupon is valid for both the restaurant and catering. Per state law, this Groupon is not valid toward the purchase of alcohol.
Since its founding 26 years ago, Rivera's has transformed from a farmer's market into a catering business and restaurant, with an eclectic menu that blends Mexican and barbecue fare. For a filling starter, try the Botanas platter ($24.95)—four tamales, four large nachos, four bacon-wrapped shrimp, four smoked ribs, and chili con queso—which offers enough sustenance for four diners or one Van Halen tribute band. Diners can slather on a thicker shade of sauce with the three-meat, three-side combo deal ($14.95), boasting ribs, smoked chicken, and brisket as its main meats, or instead opt for the chicken breast bathed in fresh tomatillo sauce ($10.25). Other entrees include fajitas, beef tenderloin, and the fresh fish of the day—ideal for accompanying tableside magic tricks and tabletop feats of chugging pickled jalapeño puree.
Rivera's diners can chase their chow with a breath of fresh air out on the restaurant’s large outdoor patio. For appetite-appeasers recovering from agoraphobic spells, a 27-foot bar offers ample room for sidling up and sharing sea shanties with fellow foodies. Call ahead to make a reservation.
- Given the ample restaurant experience of its owners, Rivera’s Mexican Grill & Market didn’t need much time to perfect its menu. With a booze permit now in hand, the joint is poised to be this summer’s Westside hotspot for great Tex-Mex. – Jimmy Fowler, Fort Worth Weekly
- The Mexican food and BBQ is to die for. The owners were attentive and the customer service was OUTSTANDING!! I will be going back there on a regular basis. – writerdanielle, Urbanspoon
