Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor with Mexican lunch or dinner fare at Viva El Toro on Macon Road. Choose from the following options:
- $10 for $20 worth of Mexican dinner fare
- $5 for $10 worth of Mexican lunch fare
Wrapping burritos, grilling steaks, and stacking nachos, Viva El Toro's chefs serve tantalizing Tex-Mex for dinner and lunch. Warm up tortilla tearing incisors with nachos especial ($6.99), a mountain of chips laden with beef or chicken, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, and jalapenos. After grazing charcoal grasses, the bistec a la tampiquena ($11.95) rib eye steak is rubbed with spices and partnered plateside with rice, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and corn, flour, or cupped-hand tortillas. Singing shrimp sirens draw seafood-seeking mouths toward onion, tomato, and jalapeno cliffs before forks land gently in a bed of Mexican rice and in salad in the camarones a la mexicana ($10.95). Viva El Toro's tortilla artisans also wrap a bevy of burritos, like the veggie burrito supremo ($6.25), served sans meat for the benefit of vegetarian humans or cannibalistic vegetables.
Midday diners can quell hunger pang uprisings with similarly savory options, including a carne asada char-grilled skirt steak, accompanied by grilled veggies and flour tortillas ($8.95), fajita salad ($7.50), a beef or chicken chimi-changa ($4.75), or an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet ($6.49) from 11am–3pm daily. Though alcohol is not included with this offer, patrons may be enticed to imbibe by Viva El Toro's chic bar, lit from below, coated in blue tiles, and abetted by plush barstools and hanging lights. While al fresco dining is available for guests with indoor allergies, those noshing indoors in the evening can clear out brain-embedded advertisement jingles with the restaurant's occasional dancing and karaoke nights.
