After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Salsarita's Fresh Cantina in Lexington.
The casual eatery welcomes the lunch and dinner crowd, as well as those looking to sip or slug a tropical cocktail at the full-service cantina-style bar. Each order from the varied menu is freshly prepared in front of the hungry eyes of diners and the watchful eye of Zeus. All tacos ($2.09–$2.49), burritos ($4.59–$6.99), nachos ($5.99–$6.99), and quesadillas ($4.59–$6.99) are compiled from a mixable-and-matchable array of salsas and fillings, such as guacamole, salsa, and jalapeños. The starring role is to be determined by each feaster—and the nominees are: beef, chicken, grilled steak, Russell Crowe, shrimp, veggies, ground beef, or shredded pork. Pirates dying to try out their fork-hand attachment can shiver their timbers on a customizable salad ($4.99–$6.99), and younger feasters can sink whatever teeth they have into a kid's meal served with chips, a cookie, and kid's drink ($3.49). Take the feasting fiesta to go by building a take-home value pack, which feeds four to eight hungry mouths. Simply select a meat, shell, bean, and salsa option, and add on your favorite toppings (prices vary) for a spiced-up family meal, business meeting, or Oktoberfest blowout.
