Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of burgers, beverages, and more at Cheezburger Cafe near Montgomery Rd. and Fields Ertel Rd..
A family-owned and operated business, Cheezburger Cafe's menu of fresh, hand-formed burgers, hand-cut fries, and sweet shakes made with real ice cream smothers hunger like a flaming match doused in a tub of yogurt. A wide range of specialty burgers dominate center stage, with the Mainliner with Swiss cheese, tartar sauce, and lettuce ($4.39); the BLT & E burger with bacon, fried egg, lettuce, and tomato ($4.99); and the notoriously massive Triple Threat Pounder ($8.99) taking burgered bliss to strange new places, especially when washed down with a regular banana-split shake ($3.99) or one of Cheezburger's other 34 shaked-milk varieties (including cookie dough, Oreo fudge mint, and Creamsicle). Hungry diners and real live bears, meanwhile, can add tasty sides such as the small or basket-size Cajun Fuji fries ($1.99 for a small/$2.99 for a basket), seasoned waffle fries ($1.99/$2.99), or homemade onion straws ($3.95).
Nothing invigorates a grumbling stomach pouch or soothes meaty cravings quite like a juicy meat patty wedged between a pair of buns, be it a Sweet Onion Bacon BBQ burger ($5.39) or a steak stuck between couch cushions. Cheezburger Cafe’s tasty burger creations will pique your hunger tooth and activate dormant burger glands at the base of your skull so that your jaw unhinges a little.
