Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today's Groupon: for $10, you get any two burger-and-fries combos (up to a $20 value) at Hit-N-Run in Prescott, Wisconsin.
Hit-N-Run occupies vacant spots on both plates and stomachs with hearty, made-to-order third-pound burgers blanketed with premium toppings. Tuck into specialty burgers such as the Rodeo burger, which ropes a bucking combination of fried onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, and homemade barbecue sauce ($8), or the Big Bad Bob burger ($7), topped with a secret sauce made from a recipe developed during a failed government attempt at bottling James Stewart's boyish charm. Rounding out the meal, each burger comes with a side of homemade, fresh-cut fries ($2).
A neighborhood pub sitting minutes from Lake St. Croix, Hit-N-Run entertains patrons in a cozy atmosphere of sporting décor. Exposed rafters and pendant lighting lend the space a modern counterpoint to the mounted fauna and fishing-themed etchings that adorn the walls.
