Today's Groupon gets you $16 worth of lunchtime grub for $8 at Paradise Park downtown. A trailer-park-themed diner is the last thing you’d expect to find in downtown Nashville, but this honkytonk hotspot proves you can’t judge a kitchen by its vinyl siding. This Groupon is only good during lunch hours (10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and can’t be used toward alcohol.
Plop down in a lawn chair and prepare for a feast. Paradise Park offers a no-nonsense, Americana-inspired menu that's simple yet gratifying. The lunch lineup includes four basic offerings: burgers, dogs, sandwiches, and salads. Burger wranglers can choose from a 1/3-pound singlewide cheeseburger (doublewide also available), the Paradise patty melt (includes caramelized onions and swiss), the bacon cheeseburger, or the chili cheeseburger. All burgers are hand-pattied and come with all the trimmings. There’s also an herbivore-friendly veggie burger. No matter what your choice, you should have no problem filling your stomach for under $10.
If you prefer white meat, Paradise Park serves a variety of chicken sandwiches (grilled and fried) or turkey sandwiches and clubs. If it’s combo meats you’re after, go for the grilled Spam and cheese. Also on the menu is a gooey grilled cheese or crisp BLT. Choose from sides such as fries, mac 'n' cheese, and chili all served by a friendly staff. Just say the word and your entire order will come covered in chili, or say another word and your entire order will come covered in scotch tape. While you eat, soak in the Paradise's sights: Astroturf floors and a mullet hall of fame.

Heroes of Irony
The atmosphere at Paradise Park taps into the raw strangeness of the American experience in a way that transcends irony and reemerges as giddy nostalgia. Of course, some self-conscious trendsetters are so deep into ironic culture that they’ve actually set world records for irony:
- Pete Tenuta, Austin, Texas: Replaced every single item of clothing in wardrobe with second-hand Spice Girls merchandise culled from thrift stores and online auctions.
- Deborah “Dee” Milakis, Champaign, Illinois: Liquidated entire life-savings in order to bankroll direct to video Pluto Nash sequel.
- Brother Alban, Blantyre Priory, Lanarkshire: When fellow monk observed that it was raining, Alban broke 17-year vow of silence, replying, “Duh.”
- Kitt Saskell: World’s first Sarcastronaut.
