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 $6, you get $12 worth of burgers, hot dogs, and more at Fanny Ann's Saloon in Old Sacramento.
Ensconced in a densely decorated western motif replete with old wagons and cowboy boots, the guests at Fanny Ann's Saloon nibble selections from a menu chock full of burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, and more. Ravenous guests can engage inert mouth muscles with a round of buffalo wings, which traipse across the tongue with piquant louisiana hot sauce and blue cheese ($7.99). The culinary team cooks up a whimsical Jiffy burger coated in creamy peanut butter and bedecked by bacon and jack cheese ($7.79), as well as an Island burger, which greets the palate with a flavorful crew of teriyaki sauce, mayo, swiss cheese, and a juicy pineapple ring ($7.79). The Presidential sandwich unites hot grilled turkey and bacon with cheddar cheese ($7.69) and the No. 51 Tex-Mex hotdog partners Texas-style chili with an oasis of onions and cheese ($4.99).
Fanny Ann's Saloon was creatively decorated with a blend of parts from an old ship and western memorabilia. License plates from myriad U.S. states decorate the walls, along with other eclectic décor. Though today's Groupon does not cover drinks, Fanny Ann's Saloon also maintains a bar, where alcoholic and non-alcoholic libations can be enjoyed under the glow of profuse Americana.
