Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with this Groupon.

Tom and Johnny's
From the hormone-free Willamette Valley beef to the wall display of University of Oregon athletes, Tom and Johnny's kitchen champions all things local. Grass-fed beef burgers that have never known the icy touch of a freezer mingle with a staggering array of fixin's, ranging from guacamole to deep-fried pickles, on 20 burger combinations atop made-from-scratch ciabatta buns from The Bread Shop. Wings come dripping with one of eight sauces, ranging from Plain Jane to Hellfire, and 100% all-beef hot dogs and nachos bathe in house-made chili like a self-proclaimed king of the Texans. Diners pit fearless appetites against the Ironman challenge, packing in a 2-pound cheeseburger, fries, and browbeatingly hot wings for a chance at free food and eternal glory in the form of a picture mounted on the wall.
