Mad Mex

Brandy new on the Mad menu

beginning October 7

The fall updates are dropping at Mad Mex next week with some début dishes for you to peruse. The Pork & Grilled Pineapple Tacos have their titular ingredients with achiote crema and fresh cilantro. Roasted Vegetable Tacos return, this year with a layer of our Pepita Hummus under the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. And for a little deep fried Indian delight: crispy Samosa Empanadas filled with house-made curry mashed potatoes and served with mango chutney.

In the drink section, we're mixing up three new cocktails: Smokin' Sour with Banhez Mezcal, Olmeca Altos Plata, pineapple and lemon. Mexacillin has Four Roses Bourbon, ginger and honey liqueurs, citrus and mint, no prescription necessary. And we've re-jiggered our Small Batch Sangria to be juicier and fancier with pomegranate juice, Grand Marnier and blackberry brandy.

Flavorful pounders from Founders

October 10-24

We're featuring two of Founders’ popular brews in 22oz drafts for just $5. Both are big on character but merciful in ABV, so try both!

FoundersAll Day IPA began with the brewmaster's quest to create a full flavored, hoppy ale with an alcohol content that won't derail your plans. To say it was a success is an understatement: over half the beer Founders produces is All Day. If you dig your 22oz draft, grab two big cans to go for $6*. 4.7% ABV

Mosaic Promise may sound like a tiled art installation, but it's actually the two main ingredients. Mosaic hops bring a complex berry medley aroma, and the Golden Promise malt adds a subtly sweet nuttiness usually found in Scottish ales. 5.5% ABV

* Pittsburgh area only.

Dia de los MuertosDia de los Muertos

November 1

On All Souls’ Day, we'll rock out with a festive playlist jam packed with musicians who are no longer with us, but who left indelible marks on our souls. Raise a glass as we bid sweet farewell to Ric Ocasek, Eddie Money, Dick Dale and more. Need something to toast with? Our House Margaritas will be on special all day, all sizes.
