The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of ice cream and grilled fare at Leason’s Dairy Bar and Grille in Warren.
The Leason family, which first opened the doors to its vintage diner four decades ago, serves up a menu of made-to-order frozen and grilled classics marinated in friendly service. Live life on the edge of an arctic avalanche and start meals with a frosty dessert churned from real dairy products, such as a frozen yogurt sundae ($2.19–$3.85), or a glacier blended with soft-serve ice cream and customized with a bevy of toppings that range from Oreos to apple crisps ($3.36–$5.46). The large soft-serve banana split ($5.39) encourages couples to share their goods and face their fear of random monkey attacks head on.
After ice cream move onto heartier, made-from-scratch spreads adorned with fresh-cut vegetables, such as the classic 100% lean-beef double burger ($3.19), classic italian pita ($4.09), or turkey club ($5.49). The marinated yellow fin tuna steaks leap gracefully from the grill to a kaiser roll for the tuna sandwich ($5.59), and the exotic Michigan-raised buffalo patties saddle toasted, land-locked buns ($5.49). Meals can pair with freshly made salads or fries cut in the straight, curly, or waffle forms.
Leason’s retro eatery boasts a bright orange roof on the outside and light pink walls on the inside, hosting two-dimensional cowboys and classic car portraits in the spacious dining room. A neon-rimmed jukebox from the 16th century fascinates curious children and historians, as it brims with archaic 45s about writing love letters, souping up vintage horse carriages, and rock rolling.
