Buns were invented to keep mouths from accidentally biting the mustard-slathered hand that feeds them. Revel in culinary innovation with today’s Groupon: for $7 you get $15 worth of pub fare and drinks at Dugarel’s Bar and Grill in Hastings.
The culinary craftspeople at Dugarel’s Bar and Grill please palates of all persuasions with a mouthwatering menu of flavorful burgers and bar fare and a cornucopian drink list. The Rustler burger excites incisors with a half-pound buttress of ground beef garnished with lettuce and tomato ($7.49), while its rebellious sibling, the Smokehouse burger ($8.99) dons a bacon and barbecue sauce ensemble, and challenges hunger to no-holds-barred games of thumb wrestling. Adobe turkey sandwiches satiate stomachs with grilled turkey, spicy Cajun mayo, pepper jack cheese, and equally peppery relish ($8.49). Gallivanting in a flock of nine ($6.99) or a clique of 18 ($11.49), chicken wings fly through a choice of 10 sauces, from laidback honey garlic to taste-bud-tantalizing inferno, and can be washed down by a selection from the bar’s list of more than 25 frothy brews.
The mellow glow of big-screen TVs illuminate the full-service bar, while hip tunes waft over dartboards, pool tables, neon signs, and cattle barons looking for a rave. A separate dining area houses a quieter environment, while a large outdoor patio hosts games of bean bags for diners looking to work up an appetite before settling into a shaded table. As a good-vibe-inducing bonus, daily happy hours transform domestic bar draughts into $1 beers, and Twins games unite factions of sports fans with the promise of $0.40 wings.
