With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of casual American cuisine and drinks at Varsity Grill, located in downtown Tacoma on Broadway.
Enjoy a menu stacked with comforting American favorites in Varsity Grill's spacious and modern setting. Tickle taste buds with a sampling of the Varsity nachos ($9.99)—a beautiful mess of crunchy tortilla chips enraptured in a melty mass of pepper-jack and cheddar cheeses, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and green onions and topped off with your choice of chicken or beef—before marching onward to the Varsity BLTA ($9.99), an upgraded BLT featuring Varsity's specialty applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado between the buttery cumulus clouds of a freshly baked croissant. The Desert Heat burger ($9.99) places a flame-broiled half-pound hunk of meat in a coating of barbecue sauce, bacon, jalapenos, and pepper-jack cheese and, like a desert mirage, will disappear quickly between your ravenous chompers. Omnivores may want to try the Buffalo chicken salad ($10.99) covered in blue cheese crumbles, tortilla chips, and blue cheese dressing, and herbivores can find solace in the veggie sandwich ($8.99), which plays the creamy textures of avocado, cucumber, sprouts, hummus, swiss cheese, and cream cheese against sharp notes of red onion, lettuce, and tomato.
Varsity Grill's vast dining area makes an ideal environment for large groups of humans or small groups of giants. The private HD theater room and 12 plasma-screen televisions will ensure that whatever game, knitting championship, or post-apocalyptic pigskin match you want to watch is on rotation, and a dueling-piano session is featured every Friday and Saturday night for no cover charge.
