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 $5, you get $10 worth of American fare at In the Buns Burger Joint.
In the Buns' exceptional pattysmiths forge cheese-filled delights, whose unconventional succulence is heralded by a bouquet of spectacular aromas. Study a menu full of more hearty goodness than a nest of lumberjack eggs, and select from one of the preconfigured masterpieces. Wet your fangs in preparation for the Frito pie burger, a tender mountain of molten cheddar and chili atop a mouthwatering patty, crowned by a crispy golden corona of crushed corn chips ($5.59). The fajita burger is a mariachi mosh pit of flavors, brimming with roasted peppers, onions, pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream ($5.59).
The menu offers all the opportunities for artistic expression of a Jackson Pollock paint-by-numbers, and boasts a roster of buns, including whole wheat and gluten-free, which serve as edible canvases for veggie, tilapia, or portobello-mushroom patties. Stray from the burger genre completely with a bacon-wrapped, queso-drenched hot dog ($5.89), or oil flying mouthparts with one of a dulcet mélange of organic sodas.
