Hamburgers are like simulated golf machines, offering a false sense of a beautiful summer's day with close companions. Taste-budily transport to summer with today's Groupon, offering $20 worth of hand-crafted, globally inspired mini-burgers and savories from Diego Zhang's Burger Café for $10. This Groupon is good at either of Zhang's two Centennial locations.
The menu is stuffed with a wide variety of mini-burgers made with all-natural ingredients. Beyond basic beef, the mini-mounds also feature chicken, pork, buffalo, shrimp, salmon, and vegetarian-friendly black beans. Stuffed with exotic flavors, tempting textures, and void of any fillers, the burgers are modestly mouth-sized, unlike embarrassingly mammoth munches that don't seem appropriate to eat in public or alone in the corner of a garage. Try the Kansas City ($2.50), mesquite ground pork with caramelized barbecue sauce, or the Bangkok ($3.25), a slightly more spicy burger made with Thai peanut shrimp and fresh veggies. Non–burger fans will appreciate the creative selection of salads (the Incan Quinoa is gluten free, vegetarian, and tossed in a cilantro lime vinaigrette, $5.25 entree portion) and breakfast tastes. Until 10:30 a.m. every day, you can pair the café's hand-infused drip coffee (up to $1.85) with organic egg sandwiches (like the vegan Zephyr, compiled with spinach, feta, and artichokes on an English muffin, $3.50) and arepas, South American corn cakes with cheese, red peppers, and green chilis ($2.25).
Diego Zhang's superior design skills span outside the plate too. The eco-friendly eatery features bamboo, environmentally responsible countertops, and organic paints. Look up the nutritional benefits of your eclectic eats online via complimentary WiFi, or travel the world with each course. Though hours vary slightly by shop, stop in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner Monday through Saturday, or on Sunday at the The Streets at Southglenn location.
This Groupon cannot be used toward alcohol, gift cards, or retail purchases.
The Best of Centennial 2009 gave Diego Zhang’s Burger Café the Citizens’ Choice Award, the Denver Post is a fan of Diego Zhang’s, 5280 magazine magazine calls it the place for “Best Bites,” and a blogger had his mind blown by the sliders there:
- The counter staff is friendly and the room is done in contemporary colors. This is fast casual with smarts. – William Porter, Denver Post
- It all tasted pretty damn good. The salmon tasted very wild and very Alaskan, and the pork tasted like I imagine everything in the city of Kansas City tasting: tender and smothered in barbecue sauce. – Joe Tone, Denver Westword
