A good American restaurant isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. Gather around today’s Groupon to socialize while you satiate. For $10, you get $25 worth of American fare at Duke's Original Roadhouse. Round up a group of friends or astronomy enthusiasts for hot food and fun at the casual Addison eating joint, which serves food until 2 a.m. every day.
Duke's menu showcases comfort food in its warmest, most hammock-like state. The Sunday brunch buffet features ($9.99) a rotating selection of American classics from biscuits and gravy to succulent ham. The regular lunch and dinner menus offer sharable starters such as the coconut fried shrimp ($9.99) or Duke's banditos ($8.99)—miniature, deep-fried chimichangas served with chili con queso. A half-dozen burger varieties (starting at $7.99) are available to help fill daily protein quotas, while steaming specialty sandwiches like the chicken mushroom swiss ($9.99) or the fried shrimp po' boy ($11.99) satisfy rumbling tummies. Heartier options include Duke's full rack of tender barbecue ribs ($22.99) or chicken-fried steak ($10.99). The eatery will also soon feature summer specials, set to be unveiled on April 15, that will include vegetarian flatbreads ($8.99–$9.99), a grilled shrimp and bacon club ($8.99), and fried Twinkies ($4.99).
With summer hovering over the land like a menacing traffic copter above work-worn commuters, Duke's expansive, umbrella-covered patio offers sun-kissed (or shaded) solace, and is ideal for dining under the soft glow of neon signs reflecting off metal awnings. The casual interior pays homage to American heritage, as soft leather booths and exposed brick walls serve as the backdrop for the eclectic selection of patriotically inclined thingamajigs and trinkets.
This Groupon cannot be used toward alcohol.

Duke's Original Roadhouse
Seven days a week, the kitchen at Duke's Original Roadhouse stays bustling into the wee hours of the night as cooks whip up hearty comfort food. Patrons can nosh on “Fall Off The Bone” barbecue ribs, which arrive at tables accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes or seasoned fries or enjoy one of six mac ‘n’ cheese varieties, including one that’s topped with a half-pound of grilled hot dog. Hefty sandwiches, such as the open-faced pot-roast sandwich topped with brown gravy, pair well with a shareable 104-ounce cylinder of beer known as Duke’s Tower of Power. The restaurant also features an outdoor patio and deck, where guests gather each Wednesday evening to toss large bouncy balls into trashcans during bouts of Big Balls.
