Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $30 worth of American pub fare and two 16-ounce draft beers (up to a $5.50 value each) at Tower Grille, valid in Concord and Danville (up to a $41 total value). Diners can substitute house wine or soda for their draft beers.
Tower Grille's two sports-bar locations purvey frosty brews and classic American eats such as house-ground Angus-beef hamburgers that earned the Danville joint an award for Best Burger in 2011 from the Danville Express. Cooks pile lettuce, tomato, and onion atop the Tower burger's 8-ounce patty, then glaze the beef monument with a patina of aioli ($9). House-ground pork fills a baguette alongside caramelized onions and peppers to create the Italian Tuscan sausage sandwich ($9), and plates of meatloaf deviate from the homespun staple with spicy tomato-chili sauce and tattoos of grill marks ($12). Diners wash down buffalo wings ($9) with a selection of seven draft beers from domestic and international breweries.
Televisions line the walls of each location and keep guests up to date on the latest sports happenings. In Concord, an outdoor patio holds 35 people or 15 recumbent astronauts in full uniform. The Danville location keeps the revelry alive with events throughout the week, including live music, karaoke, and beer pong tournaments.
Tower Grille of Danville
Tower Grille was created with an atmosphere that invites diners to linger over their burgers, pastas, and salads in open-air patio seating or in front of ample TVs equipped with a variety of sports packages. The comfortable atmosphere and hearty meals earned Danville Weekly's readers' choice award for best burger, take-out, and place for business lunches in 2009. The dishes of comfort food include classic deli fare such as reuben and french-dip sandwiches alongside bistro items such as penne pasta with fresh vegetables and farmers'-market-inspired salads that toss together greens and anything from marcona almonds to gold beets. Diners can also dig into pizzas topped with a choice of 19 toppings along with draft brews and specialty cocktails that chase meals down to the stomach's secure holding cell. Ten HD televisions show sports games, and live entertainment abounds, including regular live-music performances and weekly beer-pong tournaments.
