Enjoy $3 Pint Night at La Paz of Mountain Brook, La Paz August 1st

  One of the great things about Birmingham, Alabama, is the multi-cultural influence on restaurants in and around the city. Whatever you fancy, whether it’s for an evening meal or a light lunch, there’s somewhere that will cater for you. For example, are you a fan of Mexican food? For many people in Birmingham, as well as visitors to the city, La Paz Restaurant of Mountain Brook is the place to go, and lays claim to being ‘Birmingham’s Best Mexican for 28 Years and Counting’ – and like many satisfied regular customers, we can see why it remains the leading Mexican restaurant in the city.

Special Offers

While the menu is one of classic Mexican dishes that will have lovers of that cuisine eager to eat – think nachos with ground beef, Arizona chicken and much more – the drinks menu is also one to savor, and we doubt you’ll get a better Margarita than those served at La Paz. Plus, there’s local beer selections from Birmingham’s top craft breweries that you should check out if you’re just in town on a visit. Then there are the legendary special events, evenings on which you can get discounts on your favorite dishes, and special drink deals that bring people in from all over the region. For example, does $3 a pint interest you? That’s the price on the evening of August 1st, so if you’re looking for somewhere to go for a night out and have that date free, it’s well worth making a note of it!

Tacos Galore!

If you’re a taco lover – and who isn’t – this staple of Mexican cuisine is a specialty of La Paz. Choose from Baja Fish Tacos, a fabulous dish with grilled fish and all the trimmings, or a taco basket with traditional beef or chicken filling. Other favorites include street tacos, prepared in the way you’d expect from a Mexican taco street vendor, and many more. So, when you head to La Paz for the $3 a pint evening, make sure you get hold of the taco menu for that authentic Mexican meal you love the most. You can check the menu online at their website or download more dishes if you want to see the extras they serve, and we promise you won’t be disappointed.

Gift Cards

Here’s a great idea if you’re stuck for a gift idea for a lover of Mexican food: buy them a La Paz gift card! Available from $10 up to $100, you can select the value you want to give to your friend or loved one, and they can enjoy a fabulous Mexican meal at one of the very best Mexican restaurants in Birmingham, La Paz. There’s a reason people who eat at La Paz choose to come back. The food is invariably excellent, the staff is friendly, and the service great. The restaurant has an enjoyable atmosphere as well and is sure to be popular when the next $3 pint night comes around. Make sure you put it in your calendar, and you can look forward to a night of great food, cheap beer and excellent company, in one of the finest restaurants in town.
