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 $5, you get a Traditional Tavern burger and a domestic beer (or nonalcoholic beverage) at The Tavern, located in Warner Robins (up to a $10 value).
The Tavern serves up hearty American fare in a casual, welcoming environment awash with music and lively conversation. The menu brims with an array of seafood, steak, and chicken platters ($7–$18), more than 10 sandwiches ($5–$9), and meaty mainstays including the Traditional Tavern burger ($7). Atop a foundation of fresh-ground Black Angus chuck, the Tavern burger rises mouthward with a lettuce-and-tomato lobby topped by red-onion apartments and a cheese penthouse. The burger jostles for plate space with hand-cut french fries, a pickle spear, and expansionist ketchup puddles, chaperoned by a choice of domestic beer ($3) or nonalcoholic beverage ($1.95).
Though not included in today's deal, diners can bookend their beef excursion with appetizers such as deep-fried dill-pickle slices ($5) and desserts including key-lime pie ($5) and chocolate molten turtle cake ($5). Chat in the confines of cozy booths, hold riotous mime-school reunions around wooden tables, or pull up to sprawling horseshoe-shaped bar to quietly contemplate why more things are not built to resemble feet.
