Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Senor Sol in West Allis and Mequon.
Senor Sol's house-made sauces accent a slew of meats, vegetables, and tortillas that populate the menu of Mexican fare. Hungry guests can obliterate the unpleasantness of a yet-to-be-sated appetite by imbibing an initial dose of house-made chips camouflaged in chunky guacamole ($7.50) or unsheathe silverware from napkins to splash Tony's seasonal chili ($3.25) into mouths with knives. For main courses, toppings from nine different styles of tacos, including specially spiced pork, beef tongue, and fajita vegetables ($2.25 each), burrow between the hard crevices of corn tortillas or the soft sleeping bags of corn or flour tortillas. The blueprints to chilies rellenos ($10.75) cause cooks to plop two poblano peppers into a deep-fryer, melting the stuffed cheese inside that oozes onto plates beside a choice of beans, rice, or tortillas. In addition, spoonfuls of house-made ranchero sauce daub melted anejo cheese perched atop three chicken enchiladas ($9.25)—one for each dimension in which Abraham Lincoln wanted his biographical Hollywood flick shot.
Bartenders dust margarita brims with salt to augment meals with spirited beverages, which diners can sip during live music sets on Friday nights at the Mequon location.
