Disprove outdated foodie philosophies with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Starks Saloon in Eagan. The cuisine crafters at Starks Saloon serve up an extensive menu of delectable American fare and frosty beverages in a beguiling structure dating to 1865. Diners can start with an appetizer, such as zesty jalapeno poppers ($6), before committing to a meaty entree, a seafood selection, a meal-sized salad, or another culinary creation concocted from classic American flavors. An enormous assortment of sandwiches and burgers, including a chili cheeseburger topped with homemade chili and cheddar ($6.35), offers an array of handheld hunger halters. Pair your fare with a potable partner from Starks' beverage menu, which features 25 different brews hoping to be set up on blind dates with handsome pork chops ($7.95) and debonair sirloins ($9.50). A breakfast menu helps early-morning eaters celebrate another night of successful sandman defense, and country dancing on Wednesdays and Saturdays provides two-steppers with an outlet for their fancy bootwork.
