Though charcoal drawing was once the dominant artistic medium in America, precious few masterworks survived the realization that those early portraits could be crumpled up and used to smoke delicious stacks of ribs.

The chefs at Fatso’s Sports Garden prepare a menu of slow-smoked meats and house-made sides using recipes and techniques perfected during the eatery’s 25 years in business. Smoked sausage links stash savory juices inside reddish-brown casings, and tender slices of brisket blossom with flavors during 12 or more hours of mesquite smoking and sauna-style sweating. Grill masters rub a half chicken with spices before charring its white and dark meat and slathering the bird in tangy barbecue sauce. Patrons can supplement their meaty entrees with nibbles of freshly made sides and sips of ice-cold soda or tea.
Alight with 16 flat-screen televisions, neon beer signs, and sports-enthused fireflies, Fatso’s interior dining room accommodates patrons at wooden picnic tables, and an expansive outdoor patio encourages alfresco eats. Six sand volleyball courts host seasonal tournaments, and an onsite playground entertains frenzied tots. Though alcohol is not included with this Groupon, the full bar offers 22 beers on tap.
Fatso's Sports Garden
Since 1987, Fatso's Sports Garden’s roster of chefs have been slow cooking meats with passion and precision–they mesquite-smoke their brisket for 12 hours and dish out racks of savory baby-back ribs that slide off the bone. Housemade sides and sauces are crafted fresh daily, and 22 beers on tap fill frosty glasses that frequently clink after touchdowns, homeruns, and slam dunks flicker across satellite-equipped TVs lining the restaurant's walls. Outside, a playground beckons youngsters, while grains of sand and old blueprints for Victorian-era sand mansions kick up across six outdoor volleyball courts.
