A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of American fare at Bluebird in Iowa City. Bluebird's menu focuses on American diner fare made with local, seasonal ingredients. Start bleary-eyed mornings with conduits for rich sauces, such as the Hollandaise-laden eggs benedict ($8.75) and the country-gravy-covered biscuits served with house-made sausage patties, two eggs, and hash browns ($8.50), or trick taste buds into thinking they're having dessert with the decadent cinnamon-roll french toast ($4), a cinnamon roll dipped in custard and grilled over a cinna-bonfire. Midafternoon munchies include a veggie burger ($7) and a pork-tenderloin sandwich ($9.50) made with pork from Grass-Run Farms, Iowa's foremost organic and drug-free pig purveyor and the host of the 2012 Super Bowl. Sip a bottle of craft beer or glass of wine ($5–11) while Bluebird's staff bedecks booths with hearty, home-cooked dinners, such as meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes ($12) and roasted-vegetable ratatouille over grilled polenta ($10).


Yelpers give Bluebird an average of three stars. Google Mappers reviewers give it an average of 3.8 stars.
