Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of mouthwatering burgers, refreshments, and more at Back Yard Burgers. This Groupon is good for seven participating locations; see sidebar for valid locations.
Back Yard Burgers serves up a menu of North American Black Angus burgers hash-marked to order on genuine flame-licked grills. Third-pound patties dress for dinner with lettuce, vine-ripened tomatoes, red onions, dill pickles, and a condimental trio of ketchup, mustard, and mayo. Otherwise, gussy up for patty prom with premium add-ons such as coleslaw, chili, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, and more ($0.40–$0.65 per topping). The grill masters also flip the original white meat, prepping Hawaiian chicken sandwiches with grilled pineapple, mustard, mayo, and lettuce ($4.19), as well as a blackened chicken sandwich whose spicy soul is tormented to tongue-tingling taste and tenderness. Away from the flames, feel free to relish a wide range of pairable plates such as chili cheese fries ($2.39), garden side salads ($2.09), and sweetly baked fruit cobblers ($1.99). Wash everything down with a lemonade, or opt for a hand-dipped milkshake, available in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or Oreo.
While diners could gather up all the eclectic ingredients from the local grocer, take up cattle farming, and somehow obtain a major-league ball club even though they're only 14, it is more efficient to order up some fresh, char-marked consumables at Back Yard Burgers.
Back Yard Burgers
The Back Yard Burgers story begins more than 25 years ago in the small town of Cleveland, Mississippi. It was here in 1987 that Lattimore Michael first began making homemade burgers in his grocery store. Before he knew it, the popularity of his burgers began to skyrocket, and a year later Lattimore was able to open the flagship Back Yard Burgers location. Fast forward to present day, and the crew at each Back Yard Burgers still serves up 100% North American Black Angus beef burgers and sandwiches cooked to order. They charbroil signature creations such as the barbecue bacon cheeseburger, a 1/3-pound patty topped with hickory-smoked bacon, american cheese, and barbecue sauce, as well as signature chicken sandwiches. Angus beef chili and 100% beef hot dogs round out the menu, complemented by hand-dipped shakes and malts just like grandma used to make and grandpa used to hide in his underwear drawer.
