When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Zuma Grill and Lounge, located in Tempe.
Zuma satisfies food-related cravings with a menu that drops easy-to-read hints about tasty American eats. Start with a heap of sirloin steak nachos, piled with cheddar, jalapeños, black olives, and onions and served with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa ($7.95), or a dozen chicken wings with medium, hot, AZ hot, barbecue, or teriyaki sauce ($7.25). Diners can sic their canines on one of Zuma’s nine different burgers, including the Zuma burger—a chipotle-infused patty topped with gooey swiss cheese and guacamole ($8.25)—a bacon cheeseburger ($8.25), and a veggie burger ($7.95). Pair any burger with beer-battered steak fries, shoestring fries, onion rings, a cup of soup, cottage cheese, or a side salad. Zuma also concocts a classic Philly sandwich ($7.95) and expands the standard BLT by adding avocado and inexplicably calling it the BLTA ($7.95). Zuma's grill is open until 10 p.m., but stomachs that stick around later can behold the transformation from grill into party-ready lounge, a post-sunset metamorphosis that keeps patrons more entertained than watching a caterpillar turn into Mothra and destroy Tucson.
