The hamburger, like Carmen Miranda, is an irreplaceable classic that is best enjoyed beneath a heaping pile of fresh produce. Pile it on with today's Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Gourmet Burgers and Sandwiches
The menu-crafters at Etno Village Grill hand form all-natural pork, chicken, and local grass-fed beef burgers before topping artisan, wheat, and brioche buns with a smattering of 20 fresh, housemade condiments. Americano burgers shower 100% grass-fed beef—culled from the nearby Q7 Ranch—with up to five condiments, such as red-onion marmalade, sport peppers, seasonal veggies, and housemade pickles ($6.95 for a small; $9.95 for a large). With their protein selected, diners choose a signature sauce, such as the zesty feta-and-sour-cream Etno spread or an ajvar spread loaded with red pepper, eggplant, and garlic. Etno's chefs can also concoct kids' combos ($5.95) or smear signature sauce across a prosciutto-capped Etno burger ($10.95).
Etno Village Grill
Inside a knotted-wood edifice watched over by a cow statue on the rooftop, Etno Village Grill's cooks prepare gourmet fast food inspired by the street fare of Eastern Europe. Patrons can build custom sandwiches from artisan breads and hormone- and antibiotic-free meats—including traditional cevaps (skinless sausages)—before dressing creations with seasonal produce from the free condiment bar. Signature sandwiches fill out the menu, which spotlights house favorites such as the Cason burger with ginger poached pears and applewood-smoked bacon. Diners can claim stools in front of the picture window and admire exposed bricks between bites, take their eats outside to the patio, or teleport around the corner to nosh in nearby Jonquil Park. As an added bonus, the BYOB establishment offers to pop brought bottles without charging a corkage fee.
