The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10–15 years in one of its maximum-security prisons, but the second-best way is to taste its cuisine. Learn about Mexico with today's Groupon to The Taco Spot in Arlington. Choose between two options:
• For $7, you get $15 worth of authentic Mexican street fare.
• For $20, you get 20 tacos and two 20 oz. fountain drinks (a $43.58 value).
The Taco Spot handcrafts a fresh menu of Mexican comfort cuisine daily, dishing up its delectable creations in a casual, New Age–style taqueria. Signature tacos ($1.99 each), quesadillas ($2.99/cheese, $5.99/meat), and burritos ($5.99) evoke the aromatic air of Mexican street vendors, unfurling their pillowy tortillas in anticipation of succulent cuts of steak, chicken, barbacoa, and shepherd-style al pastor, the house's most celebrated meat and most ineffective boomerang. Garnish lightly toasted tortas ($4.99) with free sides of grilled onions or green chilies, or foil defiant hunger uprisings with the Costras’ hearty blend of mozzarella, meat, and choice of the Spot’s signature homemade salsas ($3.99). Diners can admire the décor's modish track lighting and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs while tapping into free WiFi to pen a blog about the le cream jello dessert’s decadent style and youth spent chilling in the area’s most fashionable freezers ($1.99).
