Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet burgers, upscale bar food, and drinks at Delux Burger Bar. This Groupon is valid at the locations on 142 Street and in West Edmonton Mall.
Delux Burger Bar sates carnivorous cravings with an eclectic sampling of made-to-order burgers paired with the smooth and hoppy finish of a 'round-the-world bottled-beer list. The burger bistro handcrafts its meaty anvils from 100 per cent AAA Alberta Angus beef, indulging traditional eaters with the Urban Classic, a 7-ounce burger dressed in a three-cheddar blend ($9.50), and fulfilling lofty flavour profiles and ciabatta buns with The Delux, an 8-ounce version injected with pungent blue cheese, then crowned with a portobello mushroom and double-smoked bacon ($11.50). Vegetarian patrons sample a variety of garden morsels in the mozzarella-draped veggie burger ($8.50), and bibbed grazers can evoke nostalgic carnival memories by biting into Nathan's Famous hot-dog sliders ($10) or by launching them at the neighbour's milk-bottle pyramid. In order to soak up the succulent juices of their protein medallions, bun mavens can enlist carts of french fries or Stella Artois–battered onion rings. Delux also enchants visitors with a drink menu including more than 45 brews from 21 countries and a sampling of spiked shakes such as the Oreo-cookie concoction Night Rider or the bourbon-infused special, Grandma's Treat ($10).
After cleaning and closing up the grill grates, the chic eatery transforms into a vibrant nightclub, pampering loungers with late-night appetizers, an urban soundtrack, and string-cheese hula hoops. All burgers are crafted with zero trans fats, and whole-wheat and gluten-free buns are available by request.
