Without regular exercise, tongues forget their purpose, disappointing other underused muscles who were hoping the prospect of a snack would prompt their owners to leave the couch. Treat your flavor gauge to tasty training with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southwestern fare and drinks at Toro Tequila Bar & Grill, located inside the Inn at Rio Rancho.
Toro Tequila Bar & Grill furnishes the famished with a menu of tangy grilled meats steeped in Mexican flavorings. The fuego sliders ($7) rush to the table, leaving a smoking trail of chipotle aioli in their wake. Beef short ribs, fresh from a tequila-lime bath, snuggle up in their mashed-potato beds with pico de gallo pillows and vegetable quilts ($18). Poultry gobblers relish the pepperjack chicken paired with linguini in a spicy cream sauce ($15).
Celebrate the end of the workweek or the beginning of the next workweek with selections from the weekend brunch menu or samples from the fresh fruit and pastry bar—complimentary with the purchase of an entree or $3 à la carte.
Standing proudly at attention on neon-lit shelves behind the bar are 57 tequilas of various tenures waiting to be drafted into throat-coating duty. The white walls and exposed wooden-beam ceilings of Toro Tequila Bar & Grill create an upscale interior atmosphere, and outdoor seating allows diners to savor their meals the way nature intended, as implied by the prevalence of miniature patio furniture inside beehives.
Though Toro Tequila Bar & Grill offers specialty coupons, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
