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 salsa. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Tex-Mex at Santa Rita Tex-Mex Cantina. This Groupon is redeemable at either of its two Austin locations.
Santa Rita serves up authentic and spicy Tex-Mex plated with award-winning hot sauce and cool guacamole. Spice seekers dive into Guadalajara combinaciones ($10.75) and enjoy a soft chicken taco and guacamole, followed by a chalupa compuesta and a chicken enchilada drizzled with tomatillo sauce. Vegetarians scarf down spinach-and-mushroom-enchilada dinners ($9.95), and meat-eaters mow on grilled center-cut pork loins, marinated with chiles and a blend of spices, drenched in authentico sauce and served with grilled onions and peppers, pico de gallo, guacamole, rice, and charro beans ($13.95). Today's Groupon is not good for alcohol, and vice versa, as evidenced by the time it woke up in a strange bathtub folded into inappropriate shapes.
Santa Rita Tex-Mex Cantina was reviewed by Gayot and Rachel Ray, and it was featured on Examiner and the [Travel Channel]. Yelpers give both the 38th Street location and the Slaughter Lane location a 3.5-star average.
