Making a sandwich requires only two slices of bread, filling, and an expensive machine that holds the slices of bread steady while the filling is shot in between them with some sort of air-powered hose. Go somewhere that has that apparatus with this Groupon.

Gilpin's lets their diners do the work—when it comes to thinking up and naming each of the shop's steamed sandwiches. After that, the kitchen staff gets to work creating the menu's 20 sandwiches, steamed burgers, pizzas, steamed salads, and beers amid a casual atmosphere. It's so casual and rustic, in fact, that it's playful: the restaurant is outfitted with old-school Nintendo system.
In the morning, chefs playfully fold buttery breakfast biscuits over piles of cooked eggs, turkey bacon, and pepper jack cheese. During the afternoon and evening hours, the staff builds sandwiches on pretzel buns and gluten-free bread. They construct grilled cheeses from dill havarti and Doritos, pair veggies with hummus, and top piles of meats—from smoked pulled pork to bacon—with hot sauce and garlic cream cheese. But sandwiches aren't the only food steamed by the team at Gilpin's. To leave exteriors soft and the cheese perfectly melted, they also steam cheeseburgers, pizzas, and salads.
