Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Identify a mystery of the food kingdom with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of American fare and spirits at Burger City in Vacaville.
The patty masters at Burger City send savory signals to taste receptors with a classic menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and steaks. The chipotle burger sears a third of a pound of beef to specification and uses a soft bun as a springboard for fried onion strings, smoked cheddar, bacon, and spicy chipotle sauce ($8.99), while the rib-eye steak sandwich tucks a slab of sizzling steak onto a garlic french roll, and comes with fries or potato salad ($13.99).
Like the trumpets of a royal court, appetizers, such as hot buffalo fries ($4.49) or beer-battered Red Hook shrimp ($7.99), announce the arrival of any meal by playing its theme song. Staffers can pour a beer, mix a margarita, or decant a glass of house wine from the full bar of Linda’s Cocktails—Burger City’s libation connection—while a dessert, such as a creamy milk shake or malt ($4.50), prepares palates for another round of dinner. Burger City also serves a bounty of breakfast options every Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
