In 2008, Guy Fieri proclaimed that the German-born owners of Tioli’s Crazee Burger would “make a burger out of just about anything” on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Four years have passed, but Guy’s claim still holds true at Tioli’s, which marries American’s favorite staple food to the atmosphere of a European bistro. The eccentric menu does include some familiar patties, crafted from premium Angus beef or veggies, but also forays into the unusual with burgers made of wild boar, antelope, and even ostrich and kangaroo. Imported beers and wine from Spain and Italy, as well as brews from the United States, wash down burgers or bratwursts and make it easier to forget about your childhood pet, a wild boar.

When you want surly service, kitschy decor, and a mandatory bib, you normally go to your mother's house for dinner. Today's Groupon brings you servers you can sass back at sans guilt. For $10, you get $25 worth of grub and guzzle at Dick's Last Resort. The energetic eatery, popular with bachelorette parties, soccer hooligans, and dehydrated astronauts, has been a Dallas legend for the past 25 years.
