What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Contains No Bigfoot
Cryptozoologists recognize the thunderbird by its featherless, bat-like wings and alligator face, but Denver's local population is specially equipped with olfactory sensors, heightened in states of extreme hunger, that lead them to the creature. Today's Groupon leads you to Thunderbird Burgers & BBQ, where you get $20 worth of juicy burgers, fall-off-the-bone ribs, hot wings, BBQ, and more for just $10.
Though Thunderbird is not a bird of prey, its comfortable and casual interior, while calming, cannot stop the ravenous masses from attacking its fresh, natural, USDA ground-beef burgers. Customize your burger with any of Thunderbird's ingredients, or order a Thunderbird classic off the menu. For a unique flavor punch, try the kahuna burger (topped with grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce) or the ABC burger (with avocado, bacon, and cheese). Groupon is still petitioning for an XTC burger, topped with xylophones, trombones, and clarinets.
Thunderbird features succulent St. Louis–style ribs and three unique BBQ sandwiches (smoked BBQ chicken, KC-style beef brisket, and Memphis-style pork shoulder) for a well-rounded taste of regional barbeque styles. Bring a couple of pals to sample each style, and wash it all down with gullet-rinsing gulps from Thunderbird's full-service bar.
Swoop into Thunderbird at one of its three convenient locations—two in Boulder and one in Denver.
- I love that it is right on the hill and I enjoy it very much. The cheeseburgers are so good and I love going there when I am in the mood for a good burger. – Christina O., Citysearch
- Oh Thunderbird. While I initially wrote you off as a generic burger joint, you have consistently proven me wrong in most delicious ways. Your ribs are epic, your burgers are amazing... – Nick R., Yelp
- Staff is friendly, food is always fresh, always tastes great. – Kyle J., Yelp
Contains No Bigfoot
Despite having a name derived from a mythical creature, Thunderbird serves absolutely no meat from fantastical or otherwise undocumented species. In fact, quite the opposite: the staff has provided us with this list of recipes from notable crypto-zoological creatures:
Sasquatch says: Before serving a crudités platter of sliced roots, ash bark, and moth grubs, coat the grubs in fresh moss for a presentation that is downright Christmasy.
Nessie says: Bottom-feeding sturgeon, naturally marinated by the briny loch, are moist and delicious, but go straight to your hump. Stay sleek and elusive: stick with salmon.
Chupacabra says: Drain goat. Repeat.
