The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Buck n' Loons, located in Arlington.
Walls lined with school memorabilia and local trinkets envelop patrons with a warm neighborhood vibe at the independently owned Buck n' Loons, and the welcoming embrace extends to the restaurant’s varied menu of homespun comfort cuisine. Nosh a half-pound slab of juicy steak burgers, such as the green-chile-covered New Mexico ($7.99) and the bacon cheeseburger ($8.49). Or wield a knife and fork and tame a growling stomach with the decadent one-pound animal burger, which tops double meat and cheese with a sliced hot dog, chili, and Fritos ($10.99). A rivulet of gravy floats alongside a shoreline of chicken-fried steak ($10.99), and mountains of mashed spuds and vegetables round out the protein topography of the meat loaf dinner ($9.99). Personable staff members help idle hands find solace in wholesome handhelds such as the breaded pickles and jalapenos ($5.49) or the loaded Irish chicken nachos ($8.99).
Buck's friendly bear hug of an attitude stretches past its down-to-earth plates toward the general community at large, with donations to local civic and charitable organizations. Prove your love for down-home cooking in a way that naming your first child Hamburger never could with today's Groupon to Buck n' Loons.
