When a flame licks a frozen burger, it risks getting its tongue stuck and enduring an awkward rescue from firefighters. Enjoy fresh, flame-friendly fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, salads, and other American fare and drinks at Deemer's American Grill in Laguna Niguel.
Grill-slingers at the fast-casual Deemer's opt for fresh, seasonal ingredients from local California crop cultivators for their unique salads and bounteous burgers. The menu's mélange of fresh, hand-formed burgers are grilled into juicy meat rounds and catapulted at warp speed toward unsuspecting grub grazers in a comfy family environment. Chomp into the Californian burger, a beef-bedecked bun with monterey cheese, avocado relish, beefsteak tomato, leafy greens, and herb aioli, or savor the sumptuous spice of a buffalo burger ($7.50), slathered in blue cheese and red-hot sauce with a side of two-cabbage peanut coleslaw ($7.50). For the burger-dodger, Deemer's Mex salad mixes a jumble of greenery with roasted corn and chilies, black beans, cilantro, pepitas, jicama, tortillas, and pomegranate-lime dressing for a south-of-the-border veggie bash ($7.75; add chicken for $1.75). Complement a meal with an all-American classic—Deemer's made-to-order chocolate malt ($4.50/20 oz.), served with or without whipped cream and a Norman Rockwell flashback.
