Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated pickle discs to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of gourmet burgers, sandwiches, and more at Topz Healthier Burger Grill in Birmingham.
The calorie-conscious cooks at Topz practice what their title preaches, serving up a full list of fit-as-a-fiddle grabable grub. Lightened-up options range from gourmet burgers on wheat buns ($4.95–$6.25) to sides of baked Aero Fries ($1.95), in addition to healthier hot dogs ($3.95–$4.95), freshly chopped salads ($6.35–$7.15), creative sandwiches ($3.95–$6.35), and bowls of Black Angus chili ($3.25). One of the eatery's signature treats, a1/3 lb. all-white-meat turkey burger, arrives with all the usual vegetable suspects and fat-free Thousand Island dressing ($5.15). A grilled Asian salad keeps taste-buds' dance cards filled with a fiercely competitive array of crisp veggies, toasted almonds, baked wonton strips, and soy ginger dressing, with the equally dashing chicken breast and Ahi tuna at fisticuffs for the first waltz ($6.35).
The edibles at Topz let customers feel all the thrill of eating indulgently without leaving behind an aftertaste of guilt or cream-filled guilt. Supplement solid sustenance with a fun, casual night out; enjoy the restaurant's outdoor seating with friends.
