When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's Groupon demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $22, you get $45 worth of upscale and classic tavern fare at BBC Tavern and Grill in Greenville.
Taste buds embark on a gastronomic odyssey through BBC Tavern and Grill's menu, which is full of upscale takes on classic pub and tavern cuisine including steaks, pasta, seafood, sandwiches, salads, soups, and appetizers. While sitting on a 150-year-old refurbished church pew under pumpkin-tinged arched ceilings, douse warm soft pretzels with house-made hot horseradish and apple mustard ($7.25) before diving into the sea bass, 6-ounces of pan-seared protein served with thai chili and indonesian kecap manis sauces, mashed potatoes, and asparagus ($19.95). Served with homemade bourbon barbecue sauce, fries, and cornbread, braised baby-back ribs, flown in from Denmark, disprove the myth that pigs don’t fly coach ($16 half rack, $24 full rack).
Make merrymaking even merrier with a voluminous beer list including 16 drafts on tap, an exhaustive wine selection featuring hard-to-find vintages, and a convoy of specialty drinks. Micro and craft beers ($4.50–$12.75), such as Lindemans Lambic Raspberry Framboise and gluten-free Green's Discovery Amber Ale, mingle with the decadent butterscotch martini, a whirlpool of butterscotch vodka, Malibu rum, and Godiva white-chocolate liqueur ($8). Two fireplaces illuminate a mahogany bar, local artwork, and high-definition TVs, and the patio area gives claustrophobic drinkers and anthropomorphic shrubbery the chance to guzzle al fresco.
Delaware Today magazine awarded BBC Tavern and Grill the 2010: Best Bar Food and reviewed its opening. More than 2,300 Facebookers are friends of the business, and 66% of Urbanspooners like the tavern.
- Divine bar munchies remain the backbone. The famous warm soft pretzel sticks and the scene-stealing homemade apple mustard and hot horseradish mustard are must-haves – Delaware Today
- In two opposing dining areas, ocher walls loom above tall, darkly stained wainscoting, and repurposed church pews stand in place of banquette seating. Cathedral ceilings and a gas-burning fireplace illuminate local artwork, including several prints of outdoorsy etchings by Gordon Allen. – Matt Amis, Delaware Today
