Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and more at Dale's Bar & Grill in Maumee.
Dale's Bar & Grill has been treating local taste buds to satisfying suds and grub since 1920, sporting an extensive list of draft and micro-craft brews and all-American fare. Gussied-up burgers are the pride and joy of Dale's, with the eponymous eats of the Dale Burger ($4.10) and its classic burger toppings sharing menu space with the Willie Shroom-Maker ($5.20)—piled high with swiss cheese and sautéed mushrooms—and the Slap Shot ($4.60), topped with swiss cheese, grilled green peppers, and buffalo hot sauce. Appetites take flight with other sandwich options such as The Mud Hen ($6.75), which dresses marinated chicken breast with swiss cheese, bacon, and barbecue sauce, and the Carlton Fish ($4.95), a crumb-breaded Alaskan pollock dressed in tartar sauce and the ability to wave a homerun into fair territory. For lighter bites, opt for a fresh tossed salad ($5.20) or divvy up a spread of savory appetizers with friends. The Mega Combo ($7.50 for three items; additional items, add $2.50) lets customers customize tasty trifectas by selecting from buffalo shrimp, garlic mushrooms, chicken tenders, wings, cheese sticks, and jalepeño poppers to build a platter.
Stepping into Dale's 90-year-old establishment matches the comfort and sense of history obtained by stepping into a 90-year-old's pair of orthopedic shoes. Grab your friends or your favorite Cold War re-enactors and gather for a history-infused feast at Dale’s Bar & Grill.
