The first meals were cooked over open fires, eschewing the open-lava styles popularized by more adventuresome foodies. Enjoy temperature-tempered tastes with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican cuisine at Tequila Rose Mexican Restaurant or Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant. This Groupon is valid at three locations in Williamsburg and Newport News.
Tequila Rose and Rey Azteca stoke the appetites of peckish patrons, serving up identical menus of authentic Mexican cuisine under a duo of colorful monikers. Tempt taste buds with starters such as spicy cheese-stuffed jalapeños ($6.99), or move straight to a multifaceted main course of texas fajitas, a tantalizing trio of tender beef, chicken, and shrimp flanked by an edible entourage of savory vegetables ($12.99). Herbaceous diners can nosh on ample options including chiles rellenos—two anaheim peppers filled with cheese and dipped in batter ($9.49). Should bellies require additional satiation, quell rumblings with bites of fried mexican banana snuggled in a flour tortilla and topped with tantalizing sweet sauce, whipped cream, and chocolate ($4.49). 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.
As of May 5, 2011, Rey Azteca Mexican Restaurant has closed. Groupon customers can still redeem at both Tequila Rose Mexican Restaurant locations.
Eight Yelpers give the Tequila Rose Mexican Restaurant on Richmond Road a four-star average rating, and seven TripAdvisors give the Merrimac Trail location an average rating of 3.5-stars. Yahoo! Locals give Azteca an average of 4.5-stars.
