People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with comforting eats: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary American eats and drinks at Hanley's Grille & Tap in Fairview Heights. This Groupon is valid at this location only, and is valid for dine-in only.
Hanley's features a motley menu of locally sourced dishes made fresh and served in a sleek, casual setting. Sate crisp cravings with a starter of Hanley's homemade onion rings ($6.99) or the calamari ($8.99), sprinkled with Creole seasoning and guarded by a remoulade sauce. Stone-fired pizzas come in a variety of tongue-shades, such as cheese ($9.99), pepperoni ($10.99), and Hanley's pie ($12.99), which gently lulls a slew of grilled shrimp onto a creamy bed of spinach-artichoke dip accented with salsa. Hanley's burger ($9.99) piles grilled onions, mushrooms, sundried-tomato relish, and goat cheese atop a half-pound hunk of meat, while the pan-seared tilapia ($15.99) pairs up with sundried-tomato-basil butter to create a tongue-pleasing team capable of disintegrating blandness with one swift bite. Other favorites include the grilled pork tenderloin ($16.99), Romine's crispy fried chicken ($29.99 for 20 pieces), and a dessert of caramel gooey butter cake ($5.99) served with Bailey's ice cream. All foodstuffs are best counterbalanced with Hanley's own specialty ale or a sweet dreamsicle martini ($7), which—like a Twister date night—combines the sugary flavor of youth with the obvious perks of adulthood.
Hanley's subtle lighting, earthy tones, and sleek wooden furniture create a soothing setting for consuming hearty quantities of grilled meats. The restaurant has been known to bring in live music every now and then for the auditory appeasement of patrons, and the bar features flat-screen TVs for optimal viewing of the nation's top sports, Antiques Roadshow, and mixed-martial-arts croquet.
