To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of diner fare at Theios Restaurant.
For 35 years, Theios’ inexhaustible cooks have been coaxing eggs from their shells and burgers into buns to forge a 24-hour menu capable of alleviating any craving. Shelve sandwich pangs with the towering triple artifice of ham, turkey, bacon, swiss and american cheeses known as the Theios club ($7.99), or snuff hunger out entirely with the smotherburger ($7.59), which bears the delicious weight of sautéed onions, green peppers, and mushrooms on its beefy, cooked-to-order shoulders. Late risers can hit the snooze button for the 17th time, knowing that breakfast is available all day. Hunks of the baked-in-house raisin bread put on their best egg coats before frolicking on a griddle to create the raisin french toast ($4.99), a pleasantly accented dish with a deep knowledge of French wines, and the spartan sandwich ($6.99) elevates scrambled eggs, ham, three cheeses, and hot slices of homemade white toast to near mythic proportions. Inventive breakfasticians can also craft their own omelettes from Theios's wealth of ingredients ($5.99 plus $0.50 per ingredient), selecting from a delicious list of meats, cheeses, and veggies.
Sizzling bacon, runny egg yolks, potatoes crisping to a golden brown—breakfast's sights and sounds aren’t constrained to morning at Theios Restaurant, where chefs have been making a.m. feasts 24 hours a day since 1976. The chefs’ never-ending breakfast also consists of mexican omelets and homemade raisin french toast, though around lunchtime diners are more likely to order grilled cheese sandwiches and half-pound all-beef burgers with toppings such as olive sauce. With such appealing staples, not to mention all-night hours and complimentary Wi-Fi, it’s not surprising the diner is a favorite hangout of students from nearby Michigan State University, who often prep for exams there by carving notes on Sartre’s Being and Nothingness into their toast.
