Talking about sports, like winning the lotto and undergoing surgery, goes better with a cold beer. Make every hour happy hour with today's Groupon: for $13, you get $30 worth of casual fare and drinks, or for $99, you get an all-inclusive three hour party for up to 10 people (a $350 value) at Big Daddy's. Your Groupon is valid, open to close, for the three Big Daddy's locations at Belleville, Soulard, or The Landing.
The Big Daddy's menu loudly boasts a bevy of classic bar fare, particularly after it's had a few. Start a marathon of munching with an order of deep-fried mini tacos ($6) topped with two kinds of cheese, or feel guilt-free as you feast on the brined-then-breaded cucumber spears from a basket of pub pickles ($6). To keep a hand and both wings open for tankards of ale, sandwiches and skewered meats dominate the entrees, and include the motherclucker ($6.75), a chicken breast blanketed in bacon, cheddar, and Kansas City–style barbeque sauce; the marinated and grilled skewer of steak served with a red-wine dipping sauce ($6.50); and the warm and cozy tuna melt on sourdough, covered with American cheese ($6.25). Kids, meanwhile, can take a break from the heavily breaded food and free-flowing alcohol of their school cafeteria by popping into Big Daddy's for a plate of mini corn dogs and fries ($4.50).
The party-minded can choose to fete in Big Daddy's casual, fun atmosphere complete with full bars and outdoor patios made for people- and cattle-stampede-watching. You and up to nine companions (over the age of 21) can snack on an appetizer food buffet, then reasonably boost courage with all-you-can-drink bar selections including beer, wine, and well beverages. Evening attendees can take the party to the floor, boogying to beats supplied by live DJs who mix top-tier tunes and booty-rattling bass into a dance-floor concoction that fuels the kind of night Facebook photo-tag removals are made for. Bring a group of gardeners down for a post-potting libation, or host your next 30th birthday party among the beer and boys at Big Daddy's.
Pricing varies by location; all pricing listed is from Big Daddy's on The Landing.
Big Daddy's Soulard and Landing
In 1999, Jimbo Sinovic opened the first Big Daddy's in the historic Soulard district, less than a half-mile from the iconic Anheuser-Busch Brewery. The eatery's drink specials and tasty pub staples—served for lunch, dinner, and late-night owl watching—established the bar as a neighborhood favorite and inspired its owner to declare it "The Best Bar in the Whole Wide World."
