Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of hearty grilled fare and drinks at Mother Burger in Midtown West. Mother Burger serves only fresh, antibiotic-free and hormone-free meat, including humanely raised angus beef. Sink drooling canines into a 1/4 pound single Mother Burger, stacked with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a loving spoonful of Mother's special sauce ($5.95), or appease mightier appetites with a double Mother Burger ($8.95). For a taste of the garden that's a cut above garden variety, go for the vegetable Mother Burger, a healthy blend of free-range veggies infused with tahini and zesty spices ($6.95). The 1/4 pound Kobe beef hotdog ($4.95) embodies Japanese-American fusion at its finest, edging out sea urchin Slim Jims and Hummers stuffed with anime. Wash it all down with a milkshake, $2 beer, or a stiff cocktail from the full bar.
- I went to motherburger [sic] today for the first time and I found it to be incredibly inviting with a good simple burger and perfectly crispy and seasoned fries. – Seth, MenuPages
- Perfect sized hamburger patty with a delicious potato bread bun. Extra points for using hormone-free, free range beef. The fries are wonderfully crisp and fresh. Nothing was too greasy either (i barely needed to use a napkin!). Overall: delicious. – Laur N., Yelp
