Dining at a neighbor's house always carries the risk of ending in awkward spats about leaf-raking boundaries and brutal, no-holds-barred Girl Scout cookie sell-offs. Feast feud-free with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of gourmet burgers, all-American classics, and drinks at Max & Erma's. This Groupon is good for the cheerful franchise's East Nationwide Boulevard location.
The Max & Erma's menu opens with appetizers that run the gamut from finger-friendly chicken tenders ($7.99) to a gooey plate of guacamole and sour-cream-topped nachos ($8.99). Completely fresh gourmet burgers ($9.29 for 10 oz., $8.29 for 6 oz.), sided with seasoned fries, let more carnally inclined 'vores flex their finger muscles around the Ragin' Cajun with a special blend of spices and pepper jack cheese, or indulge in tropical tastes with the pineapple-and-fruit-salsa-stacked Caribbean burger. Those hankering for a less meat-based meal can opt for salads such as the Third Street ($9.29) with chicken, seasoned almonds, blue cheese, bacon, tomatoes, and red onions. Vegetarians will appreciate the black-bean veggie burger ($8.49), served with baby greens salad. Characters in Hitchcock films, meanwhile, can conceal the blood stains on their shirt before the police officer sees them with a little help from the house specialty, fall-off-the-bone barbecue ribs ($14.99/half). For dessert, spoon indulgent mouthfuls of triple chocolate cake with eight layers ($4.99), made-from-scratch banana cream pie featuring a wafer crust ($5.49), or Max & Erma's signature fresh-baked cookies ($5.99/half dozen).
Kitschy artwork, friendly service, and a dependable sitcom-ready soundtrack give Max & Erma's a nostalgic, fun feel. Two Groupons can be combined for tables of five or more, so organize a reunion with all the other fifth Beatles at Max & Erma's.
