The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Equip your hands with real edibles with today's deal: for $6, you get $12 worth of burgers, beers, and more at The Iron Horse in Westwood. This Groupon is not valid with any other specials or discounts.
Open since 1972, The Iron Horse has garnered legendary status for its heartily stuffed burgers, generously cut fries, and a beer and wine selection worthy of a boisterous yodel. For dining, unacquainted eaters can shake hands with the original stuffed cheeseburger ($10.99), injected with one of five potent cheeses and stacked next to clunky-yet-tasty Railroad Tie fries, and veteran foodies can vanquish dreams of rarebit fiends with a bounty of a beer-laced, cheddar-cheese-laden welsh rabbit ($13.99), topped with tomatoes and bacon and served over toast points. All meals come standard with crocks of unlimited coleslaw and pickles, perfect for quenching a thirst, squelching an appetite, and spritzing fellow diners in one fluid swoop.
The Iron Horse
Learning to make The Iron Horse's signature stuffed burger is a right of passage for many chefs. Since 1972, chef after chef has mastered the art of taking ground beef and stuffing it with a diner's choice of cheese, perhaps fresh mozzarella, cheddar, or swiss. To date, the restaurant has welcomed about 5,000 employees into the family—40 of whom have gone on to culinary school. Others have become doctors, lawyers, superheroes, or other professionals. Yet there's a good chance they still remember how to grill a perfect burger and cook the requisite railroad-tie fries.
Indeed, tradition defines The Iron Horse. Just ask one of friendly staffers, who might tell a story about an old coworker or the time they had Bruce Springsteen as a customer. Or ask one of the many regulars, who have passed the years over beer, burgers, and other house specialties, such as sandwiches and welsh rarebit. Seats at the long wood bar or near the dining room's wood burning fireplaces aren't exclusive to veteran diners, however—The Iron Horse always welcomes new faces.
