It would take more than 30,456,890 12" pizzas to create a mozzarella-covered bridge to the moon. Lay down the first melty stepping stone with today's Groupon. For $10, you'll get $25 worth of award-winning pizzas, appetizers, calzones, sandwiches, drinks, and other noshables at Legends of Aurora.
The family-owned operation has been serving delicious grub with a side of sports since 1990. Twenty-nine televisions, liberally distributed and tuned to myriad sporting events, simulate stadium excitement. The menu features a roster of familiar fare: chicken wings slathered in Jamaican jerk, whiskey barbecue, or hot sauce ($7.99), fried mushrooms ($6.99), and steamy pizza rolls ($7.89). Award-winning pizzas include the cognitively dissonant Philly cheesesteak pie ($14.99 for a small) and a sauce-free white drenched in olive oil, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper ($11.49 for small). Sample varieties by the slice, starting at $2.19 for a thin crust, or opt instead for burgers, calzones, or sandwiches. While Aurora prominently features the legends of sports-accompanying foods, it also offers savory underdogs such as the avocado mandarin salad with grilled chicken breast, avocado, and mandarin orange ($8.79) and classic spaghetti and meatballs with soup or salad and garlic bread ($10.99).
Legends of Aurora attracts a diverse clientele of regulars, pizza enthusiasts, and sports nuts. Famous for its friendly staff and weekly events (bingo, poker, karaoke), this laid-back snacking station is a tasty alternative to scalpers' ticket prices and long lines for the bathroom. Challenge friends to a game of pool, lounge on the outdoor patio, or catch the big game.
This Groupon is not valid with daily and happy-hour specials.

Legends of Aurora Sports Grill
At Legends of Aurora Sports Grill, philly cheesesteak could mean a traditional sandwich, a pizza, or a 24-inch sub food challenge. For more than 20 years, Legends of Aurora‘s hand-tossed pizza dough has formed the foundation for this and other pies, including the supreme and the White pizza, a sauceless number with cheese and tomato slices. And though their patrons order enough pizzas each year to pave a route from Peoria to Buckley, they somehow find time to nosh on pepperoni pizza rolls, calzones, chimichangas, salad, and wings as well.
