Hunger, like a paper cut, is difficult to ignore, easy to treat, and makes people think twice the next time they are tempted by the minty-fresh flavor of envelope sealant. Treat your taste buds and protect your tongue with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Holiday’s Restaurant, in Ann Arbor.
Holiday’s Restaurant has been dishing out delectable platters and a multitude of menu options since 1997, catering to the morning, lunch, and dinner diner. Morning misfits may enjoy the breakfast burrito, a flour tortilla filled to the brim with scrambled eggs, sausage, and mushrooms ($5.99), while the syrupy set can swathe a belgium waffle or three buttermilk pancakes in fruit toppings ($4.29) and create visual representations of their dreams with whipped cream (an additional $1.59). The grande burger quells carnivorous cravings, catapulting sautéed mushrooms and grilled onions onto a swiss-soaked 1/3-pound patty ($6.99), while the thinly sliced philly cheesesteak livens up a hot french roll with cheese, vegetables, and a festive attitude ($6.59).
The palates of dinner patrons can succumb to the slow-bake sizzle, gravy-sauce drizzle of the country meatloaf ($9.99), or dive in to the filo-dough foundation of Sofia's spinach pie, filled with spinach, feta, eggs, and spices ($9.99). Satisfy longings for the succulent flavors of summertime cookouts with the boneless, barbecue-simmered smoky-mountain chicken ($9.99), and fulfill nutritional needs by getting the recommended daily serving of pies, sundaes, and milkshakes.
On chalkboards mounted above hanging lights and family-style booths, Holiday Restaurant’s servers carefully record the day’s specials. Many of the servers chalking in prices have been at the eatery for years, pouring hundreds of cups of hot coffee and setting countless plates of housemade meatloaf, sirloin pot roast, and tuna-melt sandwiches. Cooks also griddle buttermilk and banana pancakes for breakfast and ladle hollandaise sauce over eggs benedict—a dish that they serve until 4 p.m. In the warmer months, an outdoor garden thrives with green peppers, gleaming eggplants, various tomatoes, and strawberries that brighten from green to red. Those vibrant fruits and vegetables go into crisp salads, BLTs, and fruit cups.
