A meal can bring friends closer together, much like a camping trip or a pact to never mention what happened on the camping trip ever again. Have an evening you'll never forget with this Groupon.
$16.50 for $30 Worth of Cajun Food
The menu features bourbon barbecue ribs ($11.99+), a 10-ounce grilled top sirloin ($12.99), and the fried-seafood platter ($17.99). See the full menu. These dishes are largely influenced by creole foods, a specialty cuisine that includes some of America's oldest recorded recipes. Dig in to Groupon's exploration of perhaps the most famous creole specialty—gumbo.
As far as impulse buys go, it's hard to beat the Louisiana Purchase. That massive 19th-century land acquisition essentially doubled the size of the United States, but more importantly it paved the way for restaurants such as Belleville's Bayou Grill. Nearly everything at this Cajun haven smacks of New Orleans, from the party beads at the hostess stand to the gargantuan alligator parked on the roof. But the food is what really stands out here. The Cajun- and creole-inspired menu features everything from baked seafood platters to spicy jambalaya. French, Italian, and Spanish influences are easy to pick out, unlike the string of beads you might accidentally drop into a bowl of piping hot gumbo.
