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.
In a two-story eatery that’s half '50s diner, half Nevada Wolf Pack–centric sports bar, Archie’s team of culinary artists constructs succulent burgers and delectable breakfasts. Celebrate the sun’s daily escape from its underground prison with a smattering of french toast ($7.99) from the breakfast menu, piled high with strawberries and whipped cream. The lunch and dinner menu's World-Famous Wolfpack burger ($11.99) challenges even the most cavernous jaws with its two patties of fresh beef, two slices of cheese, and four actual wolves bearing it on a tiny burger-sized palanquin. Archie's cooks splash only cholesterol-free canola oil onto their grills and never permit MSG to touch, pass notes to, or even sigh longingly at their food. A beverage menu includes stalwart thirst-quenchers such as root-beer floats ($3.99) and Bloody Marys ($6).
Archie’s quaint downstairs belies an industrial-tinged upstairs dining area with exposed steel rafters and brushed-metal walls, populated by seven plasma-screen TVs, a billiards table, and crystalline pools of team spirit. Fans can cheer on their team of choice loudly or in 6-inch voices, play a tune on the Internet jukebox, or take in pristine views of the city from upstairs seats.
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.
