The native chili pepper is known as the apple of the Southwest, a reputation that hasn't yet led to a doctor-recommended daily consumption, but that has popularized the folklore of the obscure figure known as Johnny Chiliseed. Sample this spice with today's Groupon for southwestern cuisine at Secreto. Choose between the following options:

  • For $46, you get a dinner for two (up to a $93 total value) that includes the following:
    • One appetizer to share (up to a $15 value)
    • Two entrees (up to a $27 value each)
    • Two glasses of wine (up to a $12 value each)

  • For $20, you get $40 worth of anything on the dinner menu or wine list. Entrees range from $11 to $27 and wine ranges from $6 to $12 a glass.

Secreto's chefs grill and sauté an array of inventive southwestern cuisine imbued with the flavors of New Mexican chilies and paired with local, Chilean, and Spanish wines. Dining duos take turns plunging bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp into pools of tomatillo and chipotle sauce or divvying up other appetizers such as the roasted garlic plate topped with melted cotija cheese and eyed cautiously by vampire families dining nearby. The main course is marked by entrees, including an ancho peppercorn-rubbed Santa Fe filet, and Madres fettuccine pasta tossed with tender rock shrimp and bathed in a garlic-cream sauce. Marinated in pesto, the mojito chicken is grilled over crackling pecan wood, a southwestern fuel noted for its mild fruity taste and ability to send smoke-signal traffic reports to commuting tumbleweeds.

Dinners are sidekicked with a selection of two-dozen white and red wines including Argentine malbecs and a Californian chardonnay suffused with notes of green apple, spice, and unrequited love. Secreto's southwest-themed dining room invites couples to slip into intimate high-backed adobe booths awash with candlelight.


"The heady smell of burning pecan wood hits your nostrils as soon as you walk through the door," Phoenix New Times writer Michele Laudig wrote after visiting Secreto. The southwestern eatery gains its name from the story of a 17th-century Franciscan monk, who secretly planted grapevines in New Mexico.
