Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the bar often begins with an introduction to colorful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other. Continue an age-old struggle with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of burgers, steaks, and drinks at Stable’s Bar & Grill in Livonia.
Neon signage glints off Stable’s burnished-wood bar, where tap masters furnish pint glasses with suds from domestic and craft hop houses, and servers tote hearty plates ordered from a menu of classic bar fare. Cheese and onions adorn bowls of homemade chili ($3.75), which part their spicy lochs for intrepid spoons and deep-fried pickles sheathed in a rich, golden robe laced with dollops of ranch dressing ($3.95).
Stable’s six half-pound burgers flip off the grill, much like a gymnast after accidentally dismounting on the grill, forming such meaty amalgamations as the western burger slathered in barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, and onion rings ($6.25). Hold, slice, or juggle a pair of beef or chicken sliders served with fried onions and freshly fried frip chips ($4.50). Cups of chablis and chardonnay clink as Guinness and Blue Moon drafts flow from foam-flecked taps, shimmering beneath the glow of the eatery’s flat-screen TVs and electronic bar games.
