Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic cuisine at Allen's Bistro.
Owners Troy and Tonya Allen share a mouthwatering menu of their favorite American, Mexican, and Southern dishes with the masses at Allen's Bistro. Nibbles of appetizers such as catfish nuggets ($6.99) wake drowsing taste buds as they kick off culinary excursions in savory style. Soul-food-seeking customers can dig into a chicken thigh ($2.79) and cajun-style red beans and rice ($3.99), or dive fork-first into a helping of black-eyed peas ($4.59), a tasty alternative to green-kneed garbanzos. Inspired by south-of-the-border fare, the egg-and-potato burrito ($3.79) allows diners to eat breakfast and lunch in one meal. Those looking for stacked satiation can sample the bistro turkey burger ($7.99), layered with lettuce, tomato, grilled onion and capped off with melted cheddar cheese. While mouths are busy, keep ears occupied with live entertainment every Friday and Saturday night, or dine al fresco on the patio for additional windblown glamour.
