Before comfort fare was discovered, mealtime was full of pointed pinky fingers, a multitude of puzzling knives, and a disconcerting lack of chin grease. Get cozy at the table with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of American comfort cuisine at Gatsby’s Diner.

Gatsby’s Diner revives the 1920s and '30s eras with classic burgers and other American favorites that have landed the eatery a spot on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Diners can sample classic bread bombs such as the barbecue-chicken sandwich ($10.29) or the vegetarian portobello mushroom sandwich ($9.39). Signature hunger busters such as the beef rouladen ($14.99) and the center-cut pork chop ($16.29) stuff bottomless gullets. After the classic Gatsby burger ($9.29) or the fire burger ($10.49), topped with chipotle mayo and jalapeños, a chocolate-peanut-butter milkshake ($5.29) or root-beer float ($3.89) cools off overworked taste buds more quickly than picnicking in a walk-in freezer.

Gatsby's Diner

For the most part, Gatsby's Diner looks nothing like the Japanese restaurant it replaced. Jazz Age art now covers the walls, and tunes by Cab Calloway and Tommy Dorsey complete a laid-back mood. But founders Chuck Caplener and Jared Nuttall kept one detail from the building's past: the teppanyaki grills in the middle of the dining room. That's where Gatsby's cooks sear the burgers that Sactown Magazine praised as "perfect." What draws out such admiration? Seasoned beef and seasonal fixings such as fire-roasted jalapenos and house-made barbecue sauce.

Back in the kitchen, the culinary team crafts more complex dishes—dishes that hooked the attention of Guy Fieri on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The bone-in pork chops, for instance, take flavor from a vanilla-bean brine before soaking up coffee-bean smoke. And this complexity runs throughout the diner's signature dishes: house-made meatloaf smothered in red-wine mushroom gravy, par-boiled beets sandwiched into sliders. To accompany these riffs on American comfort food, cooks hand-spin three milkshake flavors one at a time in order to keep their embarrassing third arms hidden.
