To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, breakfast, and more at Archie’s Famous Grill on North Virginia Street. In a two-story eatery that’s half '50s diner, half Wolf Pack sports bar, the team of culinary artists at Archie’s proffers a menu of succulent burgers and delectable breakfast specialties. Celebrate the sun’s daily escape from its underground prison with a smattering of french toast, which comes piled high with strawberries and whipped cream ($7.99), or satisfy midday carnivorous cravings with a scrumptious half-pound western burger slathered in barbecue sauce and packed tight with smoked bacon ($9.99). Wolf Pack fans can cheer loudly or in 6-inch voices in the upstairs dining area, which is populated by 11 plasma-screen TVs, a billiards table, and crystalline pools of team spirit.
Archie's Giant Hamburgers & Breakfast
When they graduated from the University of Nevada, the owners of Archie’s Giant Hamburgers & Breakfast didn’t move far. They planted their restaurant near their college campus, a short walk from Mackay Stadium, to suppress the hungry howls of students and locals with mammoth burgers and breakfast served around the clock.
Archie’s is split between two stories—a diner on the bottom and a memorabilia-packed sports bar on top. Exposed steel rafters and brushed metal walls absorb the game-day cheers that ricochet through the upper level equipped with plasma TVs, and a jukebox. Below, forks dig through flapjacks amid ‘50s-style decor befitting of Grease, a film titled for the bacon fat teens once used to slick back their hair.
