Ever since a peanut butter and jelly sandwich ended the Peloponnesian War in 404 BC, humankind has been obsessed with the mashing together of different food types. Enjoy the latest chapter in hunger-treating hybridology with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of casual fast food from SteakenBurger. This Groupon can be used toward dine-in or carryout.
SteakenBurger's friendly staff, like mad scientists experimenting with hybrid horse-clone soldiers, combine Philly cheesesteaks, or Steakens, with burgers, or burgers, to make the SteakenBurger ($4.99), the restaurant's signature cheesesteak-on-burger sandwich. The SteakenBurger, along with the restaurant's other sandwiches, is cooked to order, using fresh ground beef and rib-eye steak, as well as other fresh ingredients from local vendors. SteakenBurger offers specialty burgers for the curious and courageous carnivore, including the satanically sizzling HellzaPoppin burger ($3.79) topped with pepper-jack cheese, jalapeños, cayenne, and habanero sauce, and the tropically tangy Spicy Hawaiian ($4.49), bedecked with ham, pineapple and jalapeños. A VeggiePhilly ($4.99) is available, as are salads ($1.99 for small). SteakenBurger's french fries are picked straight from Arizona's potato trees and cut fresh in the kitchen daily.
SteakenBurger is located on the former site of Long Wong's, with some of the menu items from that restaurant haunting SteakenBurger's slate of eats like gastronomic ghosts. Dive into a dozen chicken wings ($6) with sauce flavors ranging from "plain" to "suicide," partake of a 14-inch cheese pizza ($8.99, $1.79 per topping), or combine six wings and a slice of pepperoni pizza ($5.69) for a single meal of savory splendor.
