The hamburger is an edible American icon, much like coleslaw made with shredded Norman Rockwell paintings. Bread, bite, and chew with this Groupon.
$11 for $20 Worth of Gourmet Burgers and Bar Food
The menu includes a half-pound beef burger topped with mac and cheese ($9.45) and the Hangover Burger, another half-pounder topped with fried egg and bacon and served on a Krispy Kreme donut with a side of fries and bloody mary ketchup ($11.95). Burger alternatives include a fried food sampler with mushrooms, mozzarella sticks, hot wings, onion rings, and poblano rings ($11.95).
Big Daddy's Burgers & Bar
The sandwich at the center of Big Daddy's Burgers & Bar’s monster burger challenge certainly earns its title. Atop a three-pound beef patty, Chef Justin Trapani adds a pound of fries or hand-breaded onion and poblano rings, cheese, and three sauces. A place on the wall of fame, a T-shirt, and free meal awaits anyone who can devour the beastly burger in 33 minutes or fewer.
Though not as intimidating as the monster, Justin’s other 24 gourmet burgers likewise cater to hearty appetites. For the Big Lebowski burger, for instance, he stuffs a half-pound of beef with cheddar and pork belly before topping it with wasabi mayo and, upon request, dressing it in sandals and a bathrobe. A fried egg crowns another half-pounder served between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Diners can bolster these already loaded burgers with toppings such as house-cured pickled jalapenos or plum-ginger sauce. They can even customize patties and buns; Justin happily switches either with options such as a panko-crusted shrimp patty or a jalapeno-cheddar bun.
To complement Justin’s impressive burgers, which continuously emerge from grills until 1:30 a.m., bartenders serve myriad wines and beers, including 11 Texas brews. Specialty drinks include flights of frozen beverages such as screwdrivers, as well as adult shakes such as Strawberry Fields Forever, a blend of strawberry puree and strawberry-flavored vodka. The bar stays open until 2 a.m. every night, giving patrons ample time to savor libations while enjoying the flat-screen TVs or weekly live entertainment.
