The great fixin's shortage of '69 forced the American government to send men to the moon in search of cheese, take the dollar off of the pickle standard, and tap into the country’s strategic ketchup reserves. Bite into some burger-fueled prosperity with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get two burgers at The Heartland Grill in Dayton (up to a $16 value).
The Heartland Grill’s deft chefs nimbly assemble leaning towers of protein out of half-pound Choice-beef patties, fluffy buns, and a mélange of savory toppings. The All American burger ($5.95) arrives tableside to peals of patriotic fanfare, marching with cheddar cheese and traditional toppings next to a french-fry diorama of Washington crossing the Delaware. The mushroom-swiss burger’s ($6.95) savory sauté conjures memories of autumnal mushroom hunts, and the barbecue-bacon burger ($6.95) doubles up on the meaty munchables beneath a healthy slather of toothsome sauce. Mix and match a pair of burgers with a dining companion, or practice for upcoming taste-tester auditions with blindfolded bites of two personal sandwiches.
Located in historic Dayton, The Heartland Grill sets out suppers against a backdrop of both lakes and mountains, sating appetites for natural beauty and hearty home cooking. The big-screen plasma TVs festoon interior walls, helping diners stay current with broadcasts of breaking news, sports scores, and C-SPAN’s coverage of congressmen reciting the phone book.
