Get your fill of tacos during the "Muchos Tacos Mondays" promotion at South Loop Mexican restaurant Zapatista. The offer starts on Monday, Jan. 5, just when we'll all need a little post-holiday, long-winter-ahead cheer, especially to start the week.
For $13.99, you'll get executive chef Michael Wisner's all-you-care-to-eat tacos, such as roasted pork, grilled steak, chipotle chicken, tilapia and roasted vegetables, plus Mexican rice and beans. You can accompany your feast with a margarita, also on special for $5 each. (Speaking of which, Zapatista will start serving up drink specials throughout the week, including $5 mojitos on Tuesday, $5 glasses of sangria and $3 Dos Equis and Tecate beers on Wednesday, $5 caipirinhas and 25 percent off all bottles of wine on Thursdays, and $8 bloody Marys with a Coronitas beer back on Saturdays and Sundays.)
Zapatista's warm, accommodating setting, with exposed brick, colorful tiles, wrought-iron lanterns and black-and-white photographs of Emiliano Zapata (a late 19th-century Mexican revolutionary) and his contemporaries creates a welcoming atmosphere to stuff yourself silly.
Zapatista, 1307 S. Wabash Ave., 312-435-1307
