Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers, sandwiches, and more at The Burger Joint.
The Burger Joint satiates carnivorous cravings with a savory selection of half-pound burgers and other toothsome edibles. While do-it-yourselfers craft a Diva Burger with toppings such as bacon, jalapeños, onions, and pickles ($6.94), others can opt for a specialty protein patty such as the Empire Burger, which is built up with apples, brie cheese, lettuce, and tomato ($6.94). To accommodate herbivores and those toting cow spirit animals, beefy patties can shape-shift into veggie patties, turkey meat, or grilled chicken breasts.
Meanwhile, panini sandwiches on homemade focaccia bread ($6.48) and cups of homemade soups ($2.50) mix things up on the menu, and a variety of smoothies ($3.70) lavish taste buds with fruity flavors. Nosh tasty handheld fare in the casual dining room or on the outdoor patio.
