Eating steak is a traditional American pastime, much like playing baseball, setting off fireworks, and avoiding eye contact on the subway. Celebrate your carnivorous heritage with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of steakhouse fare and drinks at Gino's Steak House. This Groupon is valid at the Merrillville and Dyer locations.
The grill gurus at Gino's Steak House plate dishes from a menu of American classics that includes succulent steaks and fresh seafood. Wake up groggy tongues with the roasted peppers, marinated in a 60-year-old recipe ($7), or the oysters rockefeller with spinach, bacon, and mascarpone ($11+). Ten juicy steak selections include the 20-ounce prime-cut porterhouse, cloaked in mushrooms and caramelized onions ($33), and the 9-ounce filet mignon, floating in a red sea of béarnaise ($28) and packed with enough protein to bully a vending machine into giving you its quarters. Those preferring surf to turf can hook a tooth on the Atlantic salmon in a boozy champagne-dill-cream sauce ($21) or the 16-ounce Australian coldwater lobster tail (market price).
Solo diners can sip a dirty martini at the Dyer location's dark-wooded bar, adorned with a flat-screen television, or nuzzle up to a date or a mannequin dressed as Frank Sinatra in a cozy booth at the Merrillville location.
