If you're looking for a classic brunch spot, this Groupon has got you covered at American Roadhouse. For 20 years, the Virginia Highland venue has served generous portions of fresh food at reasonable prices. The homestyle cooking and warm and friendly ambience will take you back to a more simple time, a time when mustard gas was commonly used on enemy soldiers.
Every menu item is cooked fresh to order. American Roadhouse serves breakfast and lunch cuisine ranging from banana-nut pancakes and egg-white omelettes to black angus burgers and B.L.A.T.s (bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato sandwiches). Try a buttery waffle with fresh strawberries and whipped cream or the florentine benedict with sautéed spinach, grilled tomato, and poached eggs on an English muffin topped with hollandaise sauce. All eggs come with American Roadhouse's delicious sides—make sure to try the melt-in-your-mouth biscuits and gravy or the cheese grits.
This quintessential American diner is just what you'd expect: cutesy, down-to-earth, and not floating in space. Whether you're looking for breakfast for two or Sunday brunch for the whole extended family, American Roadhouse will fit the bill. The diner opens bright and early at 7 a.m. every morning and serves until 3 p.m. on the weekdays and 4 p.m. on the weekends.

Background on Brunch
Brunch was first invented in 1998 in the Netherlands by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Gerardus 't Hooft. Hooft was attempting to elucidate the quantum structure of electroweak interactions when he accidentally stumbled on a meal that could be eaten around noon.
Unsure of Brunch's effect on humans, Hooft first tested his discovery on baboons, who rejected both the meal's timing and its contents. Driven mad by his failures, Hooft's research took a terrifying and irresponsible turn: he began testing Brunch on his own family without their consent. Hooft, in need of funding to continue his work, then sold his research to several rogue states. In 2006, Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe was put on trial for imposing Brunch on his own people.
Today, 183 UN Member Nations, not including the United States, have signed the Kyoto Protocol, which in addition to combating global warming, also bans the use of Brunch. For now, Brunch can still be legally obtained in the United States, though it is limited to military applications. If you have military clearance, you can try Brunch at American Roadhouse.
For more than two decades, American Roadhouse has crafted classic diner meals from fresh ingredients and carefully guarded special recipes. Burgers decorate patties with toppings such as sautéed mushrooms and blue cheese, and the B.L.A.T. sandwich adds ripe avocado to the usual BLT lineup of bacon, lettuce, and ketchup packets with a handwritten apology note. Today, a second location in the Pencil Factory Lofts spreads the Roadhouse’s edible gospel to new mouths, tacking on a private dining room and outdoor seating for diners who want a sunny spot to undergo photosynthesis during dinner.
