An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but a daily burger staves off insidious bovine scientists. Repel cattle masterminds with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, your choice of side, and drinks at Fire & Ice Restaurant and Bar, located within the Ramada Oasis Convention Center. While Fire & Ice offers a diverse menu, today’s Groupon is valid only for burgers, fries (or substitutes), and drinks on the menu.
Fire & Ice forges certified Angus beef patties into hunger-obliterating burgers with elemental intensity. Chow down on the comestible conflagration of the Fire burger, which singes appetites with pepper jack cheese, blackened seasoning, and spicy barbecue sauce made from concentrated dragon breath ($9). Chillier constitutions opt for the bracingly brisk Ice burger with crisp swiss cheese and cool ranch sauce ($9), leaving spines shivering in satisfaction. Although the invisible air burger leaves diners curiously unfulfilled, the Classic burger, dressed in american cheese, red onion, tomato, and pickles ($8), sates more temperate carnivorous cravings. All bun-riders are accompanied by trusty potato sidekicks, whether in the form of hand-cut fries, chips, or potato salad. Diners may substitute a side of onion rings for $1, or a house salad or cup of soup du jour for $2.
Whether extinguishing fiery fare or quenching an arctic thirst, intrepid imbibers dip into Fire & Ice’s full menu of wine, beer, spirits, and specialty drinks. The Godiva chocolatini gets a sweet tooth tipsy on chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, and dark crème de cacao ($8), while the Liquid Oasis blends coconut rum, peach schnapps, and grenadine with pineapple and orange juices to ward off nagging rum deficiencies ($6).
Fire & Ice seats diners amidst picturesque fountains, swimming pools, and plant life. An open kitchen plan allows expectant eaters to watch as grilling grandees prepare their fare.
