Putting a man on the moon was briefly considered mankind's greatest achievement, until Neil Armstrong invented sliced bread. Savor civilization's finest creation with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of sandwiches, salads, Mexican fare, and drinks at Big Mike's in Rio Rancho.
A two-time winner of the James Beard award, Big Mike's executive chef pulls from 36 years of culinary experience to appease appetites with a menu of sandwiches, salads, and Mexican dishes. Mouths grapple with sub selections made on freshly baked croissants, ryes, hoagies, and gluten-free breads, such as the Thanksgiving, in which turkey, provolone, cranberry, and mayonnaise congregate for autumnal flavors ($5.95–$8.95). The tube shape of a third-pound beef Rail Runner Dog ($4.50) makes it ideal for scarfing, and a Donovan's grilled PB&J ($4.50) evokes fond memories of third-grade lunches without summoning less fond memories of third-grade doctoral-thesis reviews. Diners can graze the greens of a protein-packed Big Mike's salad, with hard-boiled eggs, ham, turkey, and roast beef ($5.95), or dabble in foreign culinary affairs with three tacos in a choice of meats ($3.99). Juvenile nibblers can nosh on plates from a menu of kid-friendly cuisines or use their youthful charm to cajole parents for their pickles.
