Barbecuing is a distinctly American art form, much like listening to jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of smoked barbecue and Southern-style cooking at Sir's Restaurant in University City.
The chefs at Sir's Restaurant take great care of the barbecued meats that populate their menu, marinating beef briskets, pork, and ribs for two days before cooking them in outdoor smokers for no less than six hours. Sir's signature smoked ribs ($11.99), prepared with a 60-year-old family recipe, entice bites of fall-off-the-bone meat, and the St. Louis–style rib-tips dinner ($12.99) plates cuts of trimmed full-pork rib brisket bones tenderized for morsels softer than a verbal jab from a Care Bear. Wield a smoked turkey leg ($6.99) to stave off encroaching hunger pangs, or wrap mitts around a pulled-pork sandwich ($8.99) swaddled with homemade barbecue sauce and served on a buttered bun. Diners can choose from a variety of homemade sides to wingman their meals, including steamed veggies and mac 'n' cheese ($1.50 each).
If there is food in heaven, Sir's is on the menu.Mike R., Yelp, 4/20/11
