Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts $25 worth of pizza back where it performs best. For $10, you get $25 worth of pizza, pasta, burgers, beer, and more at Bison Creek Pizza, located inside the historic Burien Theater.
All of the savory pies on Bison Creek's menu are crafted from homemade whole wheat or regular dough and sprinkled with 100% real cheese with your choice of sauce (trailblazer barbecue, zesty red, garlic cream, or primo pesto). Try Rod's Wrangler Roundup ($13–$25), which corrals pepperoni, pineapple, green peps, sausage, and fresh garlic on a barbecue-covered base. Vegetarians, meanwhile, will giddy up over the veggie supreme ($12–$24) smacked with a garden-fresh medley of mushrooms, olives, onions, green peps, tomatoes, and pineapple. Wheat and gluten-free pizzas will appease the allergic, and the lil bandit's menu caters to teenier tastes. While waiting for your pizza to pupate from its oven cocoon, ward off vampires and coworkers who keep "accidentally" almost kissing you with an order of garlic bread ($4), or branch out into chicken strippers ($7.95) dunked in barbecue sauce or homemade ranch. Diners who already had pizza for breakfast can bury their hunger-sorrows in a Bison Creek quarter-pounder ($6.95) or a baked plate of smoked gouda mac 'n' cheese with bacon ($9.95) before closing with a giant chocolate chip cookie ($5.25) that feeds two.
Bison Creek occasionally plays host to a roving selection of live music, with no cover for those 21 and older. So whether the night's house band is the AC/DC-esque Chrome Molly (July 17) or a suspiciously accurate Def Leppard "tribute band," get in the party spirit with beverages from the bar, including Skittles-infused vodka, spiked fruity punches, and house wines. Stampede to the historic Burien Theater and enjoy a rowdy late-night slice, to grab a carbtastic lunch, or just to treat allergic ears to a night of gluten-free local tunes with today's Groupon.
Not valid for happy hour.

Bison Creek Pizza & Pub
At Bison Creek Pizza & Pub, the past meets the present in both food and décor. Located inside the historic Burien Theatre, the pizzeria serves its gourmet pies from a modern kitchen, but it pours mixed drinks from the theater's original saloon-like bar. A stage has replaced the screen, and free live shows blare music across the expansive room regularly. Bison Creek's menu exemplifies the same juxtaposition of tradition and change, boasting specialty pizzas that it's served since opening in 1975, now with modern twists such as gluten-free crusts, soy cheese, and invisible slices.
Customers can build their own pizza, but the pub is known for its gourmet options such as the 6th Gear—a pizza piled high with chicken, bacon, and artichoke hearts simmering garlic cream sauce with onions and garlic. The menu has expanded as well. Grinder sandwiches filled with tender pulled pork or heaps of salami, bacon, and pepperoni come with a pile of fries, and the kitchen produces pasta dinners with homemade sauces such marinara, alfredo, or pesto cream.
