The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Dine patriotically with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers and pub fare at Fatboy's Grill & Bar (or $24 worth for a visit Sunday–Tuesday).
Fatboy's Grill & Bar stuffs stomachs with the one-and-a-half-pound patty of their signature The Fat Bastard burger and a savory smorgasbord of finger foods. Mouths that scale The Fat Bastard's tower of tender ground beef ($15.25) —so large that it must be housed within a 9-inch bun—can take in scenic views of the pepper or sweet-potato fries at its base and, if the weather's right, several nearby counties. Diners can also digest daintier burgers, such as the Bad Breath Little Bastard, whose 8-ounce hand-kneaded beef patty comes topped with grilled onions, swiss cheese, and a dollop of halitosis ($8.25). Patrons may also warm up their palates with a Hot Chick sandwich, spicy wing-sauce-covered pieces of chicken ($8.25) that make a perfect finish to a plate of Fat Baby meat pies ($6.75) and an evening practicing self-cryopreservation. Tunes emanating from the bar's TouchTunes jukebox keep hips shaking between the walls' array of neon signs until closing time—usually midnight or 2 a.m.
