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 Mexican fare at Villa y Zapata Xpress.
Authentic south-of-the-border fare headlines the menu at Villa y Zapata Xpress, where chefs incorporate market-fresh ingredients into their made-to-order plates of breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare. Like the staff’s wardrobe of pleather aprons, specials change regularly according to the head chef’s fancy, but currently include tacos prepared al pastor or de asada ($8.50 each). Frosty glasses of Jamaican horchata ($2) prime palates for chorizo-topped plates of piping-hot queso fundido ($6.99) and asada-topped fries ($8.75). Bowls brim with servings of signature menudo, offsetting the eatery’s slate of Mexican breakfast fare, which includes the huevos divorciados’ pair of salsa verde-smothered eggs, hash browns, and refried beans ($5.50).
