The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Equip your hands with very real edibles with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of burgers at Rosie's Café at John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.
When not busy battling for burger supremacy in national forums such as the Travel Channel’s Food Wars, the meat-slinging chefs at Rosie’s Café dash together beefy eats from their hearth at the heart of the Nugget Casino Resort. Sink choppers into a welcoming bite of the signature Awful Awful ($6.95), whose name belies the savory science of a recipe honed over the course of five decades. After grinding their own beef, baking their own buns, and hewing their own toothpicks, Rosie’s cooks drape juicy patties in melted cheese before enrobing burgers in generous helpings of traditional hamburger fixins. Rosie’s Café also flips other variations on the theme of beef, such as the deluxe mushroom burger, which arrives slathered in melty swiss, sour cream, and sautéed onions and ‘shrooms ($7.50), or the Sonoma burger, in which the beef is grilled, the cheese is jack, and the accessory is avocado ($7.50).
Rosie’s Café packs patrons with proteins 24 hours a day, helping diners heed the call of late-night cravings after boogying at the club or stealing quarters while dressed as a slot machine.
