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. Choose between two Tulsa 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 ($3.89). Otherwise, gussy up for patty prom with premium add-ons such as coleslaw, chili, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, and more. The grill masters also flip the original white meat, prepping Hawaiian chicken sandwiches with grilled pineapple, mustard, mayo, and lettuce ($4.39), 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 ($2.59), garden side salads ($2.19), and sweetly baked fruit cobblers ($2.09). Wash everything down with a lemonade, or opt for a hand-dipped milkshake, available in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or Oreo ($2.99).
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
Any home griller knows you don’t have to be a beef expert to make a tasty burger, but it helps if you’re trying to make a burger that stands out from the competition Back Yard Burgers’ beef experts are there for exactly that reason, working closely with the staff to help them understand the best cuts of beef, how to form patties to retain their juices, and how to grill them to sizzling perfection. With so much work put into their creation, the chefs would never think of warming their signature Black Angus burgers under a heat lamp, and so they cook them to order on an actual grill. As a result, each burger evokes memories of a real backyard barbecue, but without all the kids spraying guests with hoses.
A full menu of toppings complements the Angus beef’s juicy flavors, offering a range of textures and tastes in the form of bacon and mushrooms, Creole mayonnaise, or hot pepper jack cheese and coleslaw. And though the chefs pride themselves on their burgers, they do make room on their grills to char-grill turkey burgers and blacken chicken patties for signature sandwiches such as the hawaiian chicken and turkey club. The fresh grilled food pairs well with sides such as root beer floats, sweet potato fries, and loaded baked potatoes, as well as fresh-baked cobblers with fruit fillings that change from day-to-day.
