Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of grabbable grub and drinks at Tastee Inn and Out.
Tastee Inn and Out has been serving up sandwiches, sides, fountain sodas, and milkshakes for more than 50 years, with cozy, unpretentious confines that cocoon customers in toasty aromas fresh from the grill. The restaurant's charming, antiqued ambience is matched with a short-but-sweet menu of old-fashioned fare, transporting patrons to simpler times when wearing poodle skirts didn't inspire protestors to throw red paint on you.
Protein-seeking incisors track down their bread-trapped target within a classic Tastee burger ($1.49, add $0.25 for cheese) or western steak sandwich ($2.49). Recovering carnivores can distract themselves from temptation by tossing back an order of onion chips ($2.25) or by anchoring seafaring teeth with a delicious fish sandwich ($2.29). Rinse down your rations with a fizzy fountain soda ($1.59 for a medium) or a creamy chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla milkshake ($2.50). For a Tastee experience to go, take advantage of the joint's quaint drive-thru window or pick up a package of the lauded meat to grill at home ($4.25/lb.).
