Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American eats at Forestiere's Place in Clovis.
Offering a laid-back spot for families to bond over a board of all-American fare, Forestiere's Place serves grill-graced creations to scores of casual carnivores. For starters, share some bruschetta ($6.99) or mozzarella sticks ($5.99) with your kilted clan of Scottish immortals while perusing the grilled entrees. The 7 oz. hamburger ($5.25) happily accepts cheese ($0.50 extra) and bacon ($0.75 extra) hop-ons, while Forestiere's special ($6.95) dots the eatery's renowned homemade Italian sausage with sweet Italian peppers and onions. Unlike most traditional rib joints and daycare centers, Forestiere's Place boasts a collection of high-end wines, giving diners the rare opportunity to pair a barbecue chicken-thigh plate ($9.99) with the berries, spices, and oak nuances of the Josh Cellars North Coast cabernet ($8/glass, $26/bottle) or offset the savory tri-tip tacos ($7.99) with the full-bodied peach, pear, yellow apple, and crème brûlée undertones of the Sebastiani chardonnay ($7/glass, $26/bottle). Bottled and draft beers are also available for more hops-happy diners.
While you eat, Forestiere's Place's abundant flat-screen TVs keep you updated on the game or the latest stock quotes for your room-temperature cryogenics start-up. Forestiere's Place's casual atmosphere and frequent spurts of barbecue sauce make it as well-suited for date nights, family outings, and elderly fraternity hazings as it is ill-suited for celebrating the purchase of an all-white seersucker suit.
