The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they discover that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Soothe that disappointment with today's Groupon to Tycoon Flats: for $7, you get $15 worth of tremendous burgers and other similarly monolithic grill fare.
Tycoon's stars of the menu are the half-pound burger baskets, each of which includes hand-cut chips or sweet- or regular potato fries. The traditional house burger with cheese ($7.99) is a bastion of patrician tastes, whereas the bean variety ($8.49; with refrieds, house salsa, onions, cheddar, and Fritos) and the piggy piggy ($8.99; with Canadian bacon, creole mustard, and chipotle mayo) push the meat-patty envelope with their multifarious trimmings. Bovinophobes can swap out the beef for a chicken breast or a turkey or Garden burger for $1 more. To twice-kill an undead appetite, heft into your maw the one-pound double-meat, double cheeseburger for $11.99. Tycoon has also paired every day of the week with a special, extra-fancy Fancy Burger for those who prefer their golden buns to actually be made of gold. And if you come Monday through Thursday, you'll get a free appetizer.
Though their burgers remain true meatburgs, Tycoon has introduced a variety of items that don't weigh as much as an average neutron star, including a chicken Caesar salad ($3.99 for a small, $9.99 for a large), and tilapia fish tacos ($5.99). To aid in digestion, Tycoon keeps a selection of live music rumbling through to emit the most pleasing, belly-rubbing melodies. Enjoy it all in the remodeled dining room or the outdoor patio, beer garden, and sarsaparilla farm.

- Excellent burgers, and they have [sic] playground for those of you that have kids and you'd like to actually be able to sit and eat for five minutes. – Dr. Shaun F. Hedgepeth, Urbanspoon
- Fried veggie appetizer was very tasty as were the fish tacos. Their burgers are also topnotch. Make sure to try the sweet potato fries. – Kyle P., Yelp
