Without restaurants, people would have to use their pots and pans for cooking instead of reserving them as protective headwear during hail storms and spatula duels. Keep your armory intact with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two appetizers, two entrées, and two beers at Silke's American Grill in Mesa (up to a $55.50 value).
Silke's American Grill delights lunch and dinner diners with a menu of American favorites, many of which are built on foundations of locally sourced ingredients. The meaty chili-cheese fries ($6), jumbo clam strips ($7), and breaded zucchini ($6) represent the eatery's orchard of alluring appetizers. For an entrée, the Silke's Burger's roasted tomato, caramelized onion, and portabella mushroom ($7.99) beckon beef patties to their savory pastures, and the battered Icelandic cod in the fish 'n' chips anticipates a squirt of lemon and a dip in the tartar sauce characteristic of its native ocean ($11). Bodies seeking refuel can fill up on a hearty number from the post-workout menu, which includes a whole-wheat wrap brimming with chicken, strawberries, oranges, walnuts, low-fat vinaigrette, and half-baked motivational speeches ($7.99). Two beers see the meal to a fitting end as dining companions reflect on their culinary journey.
Foliage spills from shelves that rest above green-and-red booths, where patrons wrangle free WiFi. Tiny diners entertain themselves in the kids' area while waiting for their cuisine to arrive or for their parents to finish critiquing their mashed-potato sculptures.
