Inspired by early 20th century chili parlors, Hard Times Cafe aims to preserve the tradition of delectable, hearty fare served in a friendly, lively community eatery. Elevate taste buds to new heights with an order of legendary grilled wings in one of five flavors, including original Texas, chili-lime, honey-barbecue, and eternity ($8.99 per order). Hard Times Cafe serves four distinct varieties of chili. The authentic chili mac is served over spaghetti with your choice of accouterments ($7.49–$8.89). Burgers, sliders, and chili dogs are easily transportable by hand or hovercraft, and savory steaks and other suppertime favorites provide more refined nourishment options. To reward you for your literary prowess, every Groupon reader who texts HTCGRP to 59925 gets an additional coupon good for one order of bar nachos. Combine this offer with a Groupon, or save it for a subsequent visit.

Patrons struggle to narrow down choices from a menu of pizzas, burgers, and seafood at FireFlies while live bands and athletic events on a big-screen television draw cheers beneath eclectic works of art. Chefs slip norwegian smoked salmon amid the seemingly conventional BSLT sandwich's apple-smoked bacon, lettuce, and tomato ($9.99), delighting diners and homesick mermen. Light chipotle jus permeates slow-roasted pork shoulders ($14.99), and ripples of garlicky goat-cheese sauce gurgle among roasted red peppers, onions, olives, and artichokes atop the Red, White & Green pizza ($13.99). Chipotle mayo and guacamole compete for top billing in maws clamping around the half-pound Cali burger ($10.99), which hides beneath a house-made bun like a baker's spare house key. Though they are not included in this Groupon, inventive cocktails such as the FireFlies chocolate toddy, which floats a marshmallow on a dark sea of chocolate sauce, Maker's Mark, and Disaronno, slide down the gleaming bar to chatting patrons. FireFlies' online calendar and Twitter feed contain constantly changing updates about live musicians, trivia, and other events.

Surrounded by dark wooden accents and a single grand chandelier, T.J. Stone’s serves a menu of modern American cuisine peppered with saucy barbecue, fresh seafood, and innovative recipes. Chefs forge tender pasta and savory sausage from scratch for the sausage-and-mushroom pasta, baked in a rich sauce of shallots, garlic, and dry vermouth. Half-racks of pork ribs adorn faces with smoky and stylish sauce beards, served with a selection of two sides, such as coleslaw or baked beans. The pepper-crusted tuna rolls blissfully in cracked black peppercorns before pan-searing in its savory flavors and donning creole-mustard barbecue sauce, baby arugula, and leafy cilantro.
