Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Strike a pose with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, wings, wraps, and more at Crusoe's, located in South City.
Crusoe's corrals an appetite-ambushing array of gut pleasers with a mile-long menu of burgers, wings, sandwiches, and sides, headlined by the 40-ounce BAB burger, which requires a release waiver be signed before ordering ($29.99). Crusoe's wings, sold by the pound with the option of adding the restaurant’s famous red-hot sauce, are elevating eats capable of bloating bellies and baiting fire-breathing hamsters ($6.79/lb.). Burger boys and girls wait with bated breath for the Big Tex, a double-decked pan-fried pile of burger, cheese, grilled onions, and bacon resting graciously upon the browned textures of texas toast ($7.99), and more traditional bread-and-meat mavens delight in the Crusoe classic burger, a half-pound patty with simple fixings for those who forsake dietary accouterments ($6.79). Desserts such as the homemade bread pudding or turtle cheesecake sweeten the delectable deal like a cherry on top of a mound of cherries.
Customers relax in swollen, cozy booths beneath suspended lampshades used to illuminate the antique and vintage artwork and soda pop advertisements on Crusoe’s wooded walls, lending a retro-comfort feel. The restaurant’s bar is open until 3 a.m. seven nights a week, allowing customers to drink, socialize, and listen to bedtime tales from wise old olives.
Its retro neon sign and green-trimmed brick façade give Crusoe’s a retro allure. The interior follows suit: antique Pepsi-Cola signs and vintage artwork pop against the backdrop of canary-yellow walls. Here, chefs prepare a menu of hearty American comfort food. They serve fried chicken with bowls of thick gravy, for instance, and slowly smoke barbecued pork. Additionally, they pile burgers with toppings such as fried pickles and sautéed mushrooms and showcase sandwiches such as the Reuben, philly cheesesteak, and roast beef au jus. The restaurant’s bar is open until 3 a.m. seven nights a week, allowing customers to drink, socialize, and listen to bedtime tales from wise old olives.
