Prove your love for hamburgers in a way that naming your first child Hamburger never could with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $21 worth of beefy burgers and sides at Fatburger. You can purchase your Groupon to be redeemable at one of four locations of the old-fashioned burger stand:
- East Cedar Avenue in Aurora
- South Chester St. in Centennial
- Dorchester St. in Highlands Ranch
- Riverpoint Parkway in Sheridan
Fatburger's gourmet burgers come in a range of sizes, including the 2.5 oz. single-patty "baby fat" burgers ($2.79) to the XXL 16 oz. twice-stacked "double king" ($7.19), with other more moderate options also available. Made from 100% lean beef, Fatburger's gourmet burger combos start at $5.59, and all of the grilled goodies come topped with fresh veggies, while optional add-ons (79¢–89¢ each) are available for a custom chow-down. Plop a scoop of chili on your burger and cover it with a slice of cheese for a decadent dining experience, or create a breakfast-themed burger with bacon and an egg. Fatburger's chicken sandwich ($5.19 alone or $8.99 for combo; grilled, fried, or spicy) and turkey burger ($4.59 alone or $7.99 for combo) offer awesome alternatives to bovine-based meals, and veggieburger options are also available. Homemade onion rings ($2.99) or skinny fries ($2.09) act as lovable sidekicks for your brooding, misunderstood burger without a cause, while a sweet Maui-banana or cookies-and-cream milkshake ($3.89) can double as the slightly greasier Olivia Newton-John it wins during the final musical number.
The Fatburger legacy dates back to a morbidly obese 1952 sandwich. The modern-day eateries evoke the sleek ambience of mid-century shake shops, where present-day teenagers flip burgers in open kitchens, while ghosts of 1953 teenagers sip milkshakes through two straws and gaze kittenishly at one another in a corner booth. Don't be surprised, though, if you spot Queen Latifah, Brian McKnight, Casper Van Dien, and other future Dancing with the Stars stars in the booth next to you.
- I really have to say there are few things I find more enjoyable than a simple, quality burger. I had just this at Fat Burger. – Jenn P., Aurora location
- The sides also offer some delicious choices. Fries (close to steak fries in shape and size), skinny fries and some very delicious onion rings. – Tara B., Aurora location
