Like most modern conflicts, the rivalry between soft and hard tacos will not end until one side gets eaten by a bear. Broker a culinary truce with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Mexican dining experience for two at Taco Surf Taco Shop. The meal includes:
- Two special or combo plates (up to an $8.26 value each)
- Two beverages (up to a $2.78 value each)
Lauded by USA Today Travel as one of 10 Great Places to Bite into a Big Burrito, Taco Surf Taco Shop slathers its flavorful Mexican fare in homemade hot sauce and traditional seasonings. Choose to chow down on the #5 combo plate, in which cheese and sour cream cha-cha over two enchiladas swollen with a choice of chicken or beef or tackle a specialty platter such as the carne asada chips, a crispy tortilla-chip castle built with an edible façade of beans bricks, guac greenery, and cheese crenelations that stand up sturdily to incursions by an army of sour cream. Alternatively, two soft tortillas swaddle batter-fried fish in a blanket of mayo and mild sauces on the fish-taco-platter special. After eating, tired-out tongues can lounge on the cushiony carbonation of two sodas or surf milky waves of horchata and spiced tamarindo for further taste adventures. While mouths masticate savory meals, Taco Surf occupies eyes with endless reels of surfer films, surf-inspired décor, and a working android replica of Beach Boy Al Jardine.
