Unlike outdoor volleyball courts and stuffed animals designed to double as a baby weightlifting devices, stomachs cannot be filled with sand. Stuff your belly appropriately with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh Mexican fare and drinks at Taco Village in Des Plaines.
Taco Village's menu reads like a love letter written to fresh, authentic Mexican fare decorated in signature sauces and spices. The taco plate partners refried beans with rice ($7.95) and loaded nachos banish hunger while wearing a crown of refried beans, jalapeño peppers, melted cheese, guacamole, and sour cream ($6.50). Taco Village chefs are well-versed in classic dishes, such as cheese quesadillas ($4.75), pork tamales ($1.95), and tortas ($5.95), all of which can be painted with six freshly prepared salsas for edible art. Stomachs suffering from black holism can be finally filled with the approximately 20-inch, 5-pound El Jefe burrito. If El Jefe vanishes in less than 10 minutes, wallets get off scot-free. Breakfast options are available all day, and homemade horchata slakes thirst ($1.59).
