Houston's settlers built their city on a barbecue bayou, and for decades their city sunk 2 feet a year into the smoky, tangy quagmire until they found a solution: drain the swamps of the sauce and slather it on their ribs. Eat your way out of a hungermire with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of barbeque and drinks at Alexander the Great Restaurant in Westland. A family-owned eatery that has pleased people palates for more than three decades, Alexander the Great boasts a menu brimming with more than 42 saucy entrees including ribs, barbecue chicken, steak, salads, burgers, seafood, and pasta. Spice-craving omnivores can indulge in the pulled pork platter, or tackle the great feast, a formidable gathering of juicy barbecue ribs, flavorful chicken, and crispy breaded shrimp that once foiled even Millard "Never Full" Fillmore. Wash down your meal with one of 11 cocktails, six wines, or 10 coffee and ice-cream libations. Children and sentient souls younger than 12 can enjoy a kids' menu packed with pint-sized staples including chicken tenders and grilled cheese. The mural over the bar depicting the great Roman triumph over the kebab insurrection of 44 BC inspires patrons to great feats of hunger satiation.
