Like phone numbers and ill-considered doctoral theses, barbecue sauce often ends up on a napkin. Dole out savory blots with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of barbecue fare and drinks at Texas Tony’s BBQ Shack.
Tony Phelan, owner of Texas Tony’s BBQ Shack, rubs beef, chicken, and pork with a secret combination of spices to fill a menu of Texas-style barbecue smoked slowly over low heat. The meat absorbs citrusy flavor from orange-tree wood for 18 hours, or about the time it takes to overtake and lasso a tumbleweed. Hands wrap hungrily around the texan sandwich, two pieces of texas toast stockpiling heaps of beef brisket, slaw, pickles, jalapeños, and sauce ($10.99). A shot of one of three house-made barbecue sauces adds sweetness, mustard-tinged piquancy, or a spicy habanero kick to test the endurance of flame-resistant taste buds. Diners can foresee a finger-licking future with a full rack of baby back ribs escorted by sides such as collard greens and onion rings ($14.99). A cold beer or sweet tea clears mouths of lingering smoke, and a piece of sweet-potato cheesecake ($3.99) lowers a sweet, smooth curtain over meals. Each table's upside-down tin-can lampshade shines a spotlight on plates of savory barbecue and invites exuberant midmeal drum solos.
Fun casual dining. Country music. They have TV's to watch sports so the men are happy. Beer and wine is served. Friendly staff too.FLmarinemom, TripAdvisor, 9/9/11
