Mexico baits tourists with sunny vacation spots, tequila, and dreams of being able to fit an entire burrito in your mouth. Start stretching out your cheeks with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar in Smyrna.
Village Taqueria, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips culled from a large tequila and cocktail list, raking in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. The burrito de longosta, stuffed with lobster and manchego grits ($16), converts fancy fare into a handheld dish without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée up in a sheet of gold leaf.
Tacos fold corn or flour tortillas around chicken steeped in Oaxacan chocolate mole, veggies, and golden-brown catfish crowned with mango jalapeño slaw ($12 for plate of three). Grilled jumbo shrimp luxuriate in a bath of chile-ancho salsa served over spaghetti squash in the veracruz ($17), great for pairing with a tequila flight that teaches taste buds the basics of blanco, reposado, and anejo tequila ($12) and sippers how to turn life's lemons into proper chasers.
Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar
Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips from the large tequila and cocktail list and rakes in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. Chef Oscar Mendivil runs the kitchen, where he perfects the culinary art of tacos with perfectly braised barbacoa, fire-roasted poblano chilies, and grilled shrimp. The burrito de langosta—packed with sautéed lobster and manchego grits—makes fancy fare portable without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée in a sheet of gold leaf. A dozen margaritas and Latin cocktails grace the drink menu, sharing space with nearly 100 types of tequila.
