A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10, you get $20 worth of freshly prepared Mexican eats at Rosa Linda's Fine Mexican Cuisine's new Clovis location.
Owner Rosalinda Tovar delights Fresno-area eaters with a menu of authentic, award-winning Mexican cuisine. On weekends, patrons can partake of the accolade-earning menudo, a hominy-and-tripe soup ($6.25 for a small bowl). Many a blushing taste bud has fallen prey to the tamales, a seductive selection of pork, chicken, or beef wrapped within a tailored waistcoat of fresh corn masa and an elegant corn-husk dinner jacket ($10.95 for a plate of two). The fajitas deluxe showcases a sizzling triumvirate of beef, chicken, and shrimp with mixed veggies, guacamole, and sour cream ($14.95). For chronic coin-flippers, the list of combination plates stumps the stodgiest statisticians with its overwhelming set of flavor coefficients (up to $10.95). All entrees come with rice and beans.
Enjoy a round of Tecate or Pacifico ($3.95) from Rosa Linda's imported beer list, or quaff a wine margarita ($3.75) or sangria ($3.50). Inside, red-hued walls, photographs of Mexico, and appetizing aromas transport visitors southward, without the inconvenience of encountering a flock of chupacabras.
