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 fare at Wild Willy's Burgers, located near the Greendale Mall.
Juicy, handmade patties and toasted, buttery buns build the foundation for the 13 different specialty burgers at Wild Willy's, home of the 2010 winner for best cheeseburger in town by Worcester magazine. Beef lovers can sink their teeth into an American classic with the Willy Burger ($6.15), a go-to standard topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles or venture forth into the wilds of burgerland with specialties such as the Rio Grande ($6.15), piled with roasted green chiles and Cheddar cheese. Swap out a domesticated Angus patty for a leaner native bison patty for about $1 more, or try the Buffalo Bill Bison burger ($7.25), with horseradish, cheddar, and mushrooms. Wild Willy's caters to special dietary needs as well as burger-wranglers—a full gluten-free menu is available, as well as a veggie burger and salads. Finish off the meal with a cold and creamy frappe ($4.50) or an ice cream float ($4.25) before riding off into the sunset.
