Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $14, you get two 16-ounce beers and two burgers of your choice at Dad’s Cafe in Antioch (up to a $31.48 value).
Dad’s Cafe disseminates to diners a menu overflowing with dishes inspired by everyday family recipes. Tablemates can battle for the last scoop in a complimentary spread of chips, bean dip, and salsa, before perusing a list of burgers that costar with a choice of one of four sides ($6.99–$10.99). The All-American keeps it simple with lettuce, tomato, and onions and the California makes a splash with a wave of sautéed mushrooms, avocado, and jack cheese. A bacon-barbecue burger doubles meat doses with a juicy beef patty and strips of crispy bacon buried beneath cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and mushrooms can fill in the holes of swiss cheese on the turkey burger. Augment the flood of flavor by imbibing gulps from a 16-ounce beer ($4.75), with taps spouting selections as varied as Stella Artois, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and Shock Top Belgian White. Dad’s Cafe libation servers courteously pour each beer at a cold temperature, eliminating the need to bring along a bucket of ice or a sack of snow.
Inside the eatery, guests can take breaks from staring at their cuisine or counting to six in French to admire the wood trim that frames framed art and stands sturdy beneath blasts of fresh air whirring from the dining room’s ceiling fans.
