Like a political sign, food mounted on a stick often captures the attention of passersby when displayed in one’s front yard. Show flavor solidarity with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a meal for two at Batter Up (up to an $18.50 total value). The meal includes the following:
- Two corn dogs, Double Plays, or Triple Plays (up to an $8.50 value)
- Two desserts (up to a $6 value)
- Two drinks and two bags of chips (a $4 value)
Batter Up’s kitchen staff dip sausages and desserts in house-made batter before bringing them to deep-fried perfection behind a mural-bedecked façade. An expansive lineup of sausages—which includes Louisiana hot link, smoked bratwurst, kielbasa-spiced tofu, and Cajun turkey—don cloaks of savory batter before taking a dip in the hot swirling bubbles of a deep fryer, much like Colonel Sanders did after a hard day’s work. Or combine multiple types of sausage or cheese blocks on one stick with the Double Play or Triple Play meal options. Batter Up also transforms Snickers bars, peanut-butter cups, and other confections into gooey-centered desserts by frying them in oil or cooking them over an exposed lightsaber.
