The right blend of Mexican spices turns meals into fiestas and lures droves of grazing piñatas within the reach of a sturdy broomstick. Enjoy south-of-the-border zest with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of dinner fare and drinks at The Pub, formerly Tio Rodrigo's Mexican Grill, and Hot Rod Cafe. While The Pub now serves bar food, such as burgers and sandwiches, the original Tio Rodridgo's dinner menu is still served at this location on Wednesdays.
The cooks at Tio Rodrigo’s Mexican Grill melt, grill, and sauté selections from a menu of Mexican standards to order. Rice, pinto beans, corn, and meat or veggies overflow from mission-style rolled burritos ($8.95–$10.95), so named for early Spanish missionaries' habit of bundling guacamole inside their tunics for warmth in the New World. A trio of corn tortillas safeguards steak, chicken, or cheese in the enchiladas ($7.95–$11.95), and pintsize patrons can nibble less-spicy mini meals from the kids' menu, opting for a cheese quesadilla or grilled chicken with rice and beans ($4.95–$6.95 each). House-made red and white sangria, Mexican beers, and margaritas made with fresh fruit juice and a choice of more than three dozen tequilas ($8+) accompany meals taken before a game on one of the widescreen TVs or on the patio.
