The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Take a bite of tradition with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of gator burgers, hand-cut fries, and American grill fare at Albert's Grill in Columbia Heights.
The crackerjack cooks at Albert's Grill flip gator patties, build beefy burgers, and hand-cut fries to prepare a thrilling menu of American fare. Choose between a third-pound handmade beef patty topped with fried onions ($6+) or a quarter-pound seasoned alligator patty topped with Albert's creamy mustard sauce ($7.50+) to begin your journey toward tasting a signature burger. The firecracker burger shoots spicy to the taste buds with two slices of pepper jack, spicy sauce, and jalapenos, and includes neutralizers of lettuce and tomato ($7 for beef; $8.50 for gator). The breakfast burger, meanwhile, snoozes in cheese pajamas and bacon slippers, snuggling a blanket of fried egg ($7 for beef; $8.50 for gator). For patty-free fare, point fangs at a crunchy, mustard-fueled shrimp po boy ($6). Cold 1919 draft root beer ($2) with real sugar and vanilla foams directly from the tap into glasses, offering to help rinse away the flavorful tongue glue found within the crispy shell of the deep-fried PB&J garnished with cinnamon, sugar, and white and dark chocolates ($3).
