Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touch into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican eats and drinks at Salty Rock Cantina.
The Pointe Vedra Beach cantina serves up a fresh menu of tasty Tex-Mex treats served daily for lunch and dinner. Start your dining adventure by splitting an order of green-chili sliders ($7.95) with your brawny bodybuilding companion. Haberdashers and handmaidens savor the bespiced flavor of the mini sirloin burgers smothered in cheese and green-chili sauce, while history profs opt for a 10-inch Mexican pizza ($9.95), loaded with steak or chicken, black beans, fresh chopped veggies, Chihuahua cheese, and red mole sauce. Soups and salads offer light options for foolish diners who spoiled dinner with mid-afternoon Pop-Tart binges, while the more heartily appetited will enjoy feasting on any of the eatery's tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, or house specialties, such as the ancho-seared scallops ($17.95) doused in red-chili pecan sauce and served with yucca fries and poblano grits, or the slow-roasted pork ranchera ($14.95) with black beans, rice, fresh veggies, and poblano peppers.
The festive atmosphere at the eatery is enhanced by its friendly wait staff, sunny yellow walls, and warm wood accents, making the Tex-Mexeria an ideal place to celebrate your next engagement or Christmas album release party. Finish any food-inspired fiesta off sweetly with an order of the deep-fried mango cheesecake ($4.95) or chocolate chili brownie ($4.95) with quajillo syrup, and leave as satisfied as when you successfully trained your corgi to knit her own sweater.
Salty Rock Cantina has grabbed glowing reviews from the Florida Times-Union and EU Jacksonville, and has been featured in the Jacksonville Business Journal. Seventy-one percent of Urbanspooners recommend it, and three TripAdvisors give the Tex-Mex palace an average of 3.5 owl eyes:
- Salty Rock Cantina in Ponte Vedra Beach offers good tasting food, great portions and delicious drinks at affordable prices. It's a formula for a repeat visit in my book. – J.F. Mix, Florida Times-Union
- Salty Rock Cantina, mid-range in price, is certainly not mid-range in flavor. [The chef] creates dishes that simultaneously surprise and give solace in the Southwestern milieu at a decent price. – Erin Thursby, EU Jacksonville
- We are regulars at Salty Rock! Love the fresh chips and salsa, my daughter gets the queso with flour tortillas. Very kid friendly but we also love to go up with friends and hang out....good margaritas and fun trivia night on Wednesday. – Ann, Urbanspoon
