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 at The Burgery Company in Emmaus.
The Burgery Company's menu shakes up the classic construction of an American standard by using fresh, local ingredients and a cornucopia of protein options to suit all tastes. Defying the austerity of the plain––yet delicious––beef burger ($6.25), the roadrunner ostrich burger slathers itself in vibrant mango relish, plaintain crisps, and a fake accent ($12.95) to appeal to roving, worldly stomachs, as two varieties of veggie patties ($6.95) quell voracious vegetable appetites with the fresh taste of flame-kissed unmeats.
Custom burgers begin with any of The Burgery's 14 types of patties, which include standbys such as beef, turkey, and chicken alongside gourmet options including prime rib, salmon, and venison––permitting diners to take aim at preferred ingredients and sidestep aversions and allergies. Top an elk burger ($10.85) with pepper jack cheese ($0.50), garlic hummus, and roasted red peppers ($0.50 each), or outfit a tuna patty ($9.85) with a seaworthy spread of pickle planks ($0.50) and thousand-island dressing ($0.25) on a bed of mixed greens ($1). Augmenting the bun-based bounty, tater tots ($3.25) and fried dill pickles ($3.65)––fried too crisp to move––watch helplessly as gallons of Longacre's ice cream succumb to greedy milk shakes ($4), while The Burgery Company's BYOB policy welcomes diners to tote potent potables from home to toast their grilled repasts.
The Burgery Company
Elk. Bison. Ostrich. Not only are these the most popular pets among billionaires, they're also three of the most popular burgers at The Burgery Company. Since 2010, The Burgery Company's chefs have been putting their own twist on the classic American burger by building them with high-quality beef and more exotic meat patties.
The Mountain Hawk burger, for instance, teams bison with swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, and sweet bourbon sauce; the Roadrunner, meanwhile, features ostrich with lime-pepper seasoning, guacamole, and pineapple. Pierogies, onion rings, and fresh-cut fries round out Burgery's spread, along with Longacre's ice cream shakes and malts.
