The art of short-order hash slinging recalls a simpler time, when cars hopped, argyle reigned supreme, and the Cold War made every burger even better. Eat all-American with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of burgers and classic American diner fare and drinks at Peggy Sue’s downtown Park Avenue location.
Peggy Sue’s menu of tasty treats, crafted according to the culinary preferences of the nifty ’50s, is accented by the nostalgic décor of autographed mementos from rock legends and famous figures. Buffalo wings and fries ($5.95) launch a bohemian repast that continues with a Shark Bite, Peggy Sue’s bacon-draped, 100% ground-chuck double cheeseburger ($7.25). Patrons can snap to a beatnik breakfast (served daily until 11 a.m.) of flirtatiously accented french toast with a choice of bacon or sausage ($6.95+), or a vegetarian omelet, which marries sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, and cheese ($7.95).
Naked lunches may seek the demure cover of a freshly felted poodle skirt or a multifariously flavored milkshake ($4.55) or float ($3.55). Rebel without a particular cause at Peggy Sue’s bar, where you can seize a domestic, microbrew, or imported bottle of beer ($3.50–$4.25) or a glass of wine ($4.50).
