In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce (as chronicled in the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Sauce). Get the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of barbecue fare and drinks at Big R's Bar-B-Q in LaGrange.
Thanks to a menu that's packed with slow cooked, flavor-laden fare, Big R's is a meaty mecca for fans of barbecued fare. The restaurant's pork butts and briskets are hickory smoked for at least 12 hours, delivering a savory succulence without liquid smoke or MSG.
Soothe a ravenous appetite by offering it a full slab of baby-back ribs seasoned with a homemade dry rub and smoked for four hours ($18), or take a low-carb route to satiation with a barbecue chicken wrap and a side of greens, baked beans, or potato salad ($6.95). Big R's also offers pulled pork, pulled chicken, and chopped brisket with sauce by the pound ($11). During their visit, eaters can seek and destroy a few drinks at Big R's full-service bar, then pause to fling a bunch of pointy objects at patiently waiting dartboards.

- It is rare to get Southern Barbeque as good as this north of Tennessee. We were greeted by Randy (The Big R) and the food and service was fantastic. Great Ribs and the beef brisket was the best! – RL Weave2
