Often, hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while brains are preoccupied plotting a 3-D remake of Twelve Angry Men. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon. For $7, you get $15 worth of food and drink at Elephants Delicatessen. This Groupon can be used in-store only at your choice of Elephants Delicatessen's five primary Portland-area locations. Choose from Elephants Delicatessen on NW 22nd Avenue; Flying Elephants Delicatessen on SW Park Avenue, in Lake Oswego, or inside the Oregon Market at the Portland International Airport; or Elephants on Wheels on SW Fifth Avenue.
Elephants Delicatessen has been providing Portlanders with fresh deli fare since the dying days of disco. Items are made from scratch daily, with the menu and prices varying from location to location. A few staples pop up at several Elephants eateries, however—namely, the delicatessen's highly praised soups, including the beloved tomato orange soup ($4.50 for a bowl at the Elephants on Wheels location), said to have the ability to align stars in a single spoonful. An array of sandwiches is also available at Elephants Delicatessen, including an albacore tuna salad mini-hoagie ($4.50 at the three Flying Elephants locations), or the Elephants' Own Hamburger ($8.95 at the NW 22nd Avenue location). Depending on which Elephants you choose to harness with your lunch-grabbing lasso, you can also opt for pizza, spinach salad, a black-bean burger, fish and chips, or a Carolina pulled-pork sandwich. Be sure to check your location's menu before making crazy-eyed demands for lobster-and-squash cookies, which don't exist.
While several Elephants Delicatessen locations are equipped for quick culinary pick-ups during morning commutes to the local Rubik's Cube mine, those choosing to enjoy their grub within an Elephants location will be treated to a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. The NW 22nd Avenue Elephants offers a naturally lit, casual seating area with wood tables and chairs, while the Elephants on Wheels restaurant features a colorful mural with pedaling pachyderms. Get your Groupon and enjoy Elephants Delicatessen's customized cuisine and comfortable confines.

- Elephant's is a behemoth, which of course makes the name appropriate, and it's mouthwateringly diverse in its food offerings. Whether you want some pastrami to go or a full gourmet meal, you can get it here, and this is the best place in town to put together a picnic before heading up to Washington Park. – Frommer's

- Probably the best deli in the Northwest, Elephants has a huge selection of gourmet groceries and prepared foods. Definitely check out the daily soups--the tomato orange (a regular) is absolutely delicious. – Sue O., Citysearch
