Most children won't eat a vegetable unless it is fried, just like they won't walk a dog who isn't wearing a bowtie. Pick your battles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of comfort fare at Tatum's Touch of Philly in Golden.
Tatum's dishes up solace to weary stomachs with a menu of comfort fare and deli-style treats for appetite appeasement. Sink teeth into a smorgasbord of Americana, from the storied past of the fried pickle ($2) and the classic cheesesteak ($5.89 regular, $6.99 large) to the words of recessionary caution offered by the fried catfish po' boy ($7.49).
Like King Arthur's round table, the 16-inch one-topping pizzas ($11.99, additional toppings $1 each) are emblems of equality, leaving no one bereft of crusty goodness or well-honed geometry skills. Meanwhile, handheld hoagies laugh in the face of smug silverware, creating a messy poster child in the Smiler, a lunchtime layering of egg salad, bacon, and sweet jalapeños ($5.19).
