In the old days, the only thing to drink at a tavern was trail dust and the only food was whiskey. Leave the past in your horse's saddlebags and celebrate freedom of foodchoice with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of casual dining from Big Shotz Tavern, at one of its two locations: in Winston-Salem on South Stratford Road and in Clemmons on River Ridge Drive.
Ride your tongue to town with Big Shotz's newly revamped menu, starring a cast of grilled eats and meats, pastas, burgers, and pizzas. Start your meal with a winsome appetizer, such as one pound of seasoned, marinated black and bleu wings, spiced to spicy spicedness and topped with melted bleu cheese ($8.50, two pounds for $15.95). For a quick fare foray, order up a satisfying salad such as the turkey cobb (field greens with house-roasted turkey, avocado, lacquered bacon, diced tomatoes, and blue cheese crumbles, $9.50), or sample some of the freshest fusion bounty with the Baja fish taco platter (tilapia-filled soft flour tacos topped with fresh pineapple salsa and Asian slaw and served with seasoned rice and Cuban black beans, $10.95). To dive deeper into the meaty, appetite-pummeling tides of taste, order a 14-ounce center-cut rib eye, grilled over an authentic flame and served with buttermilk mashed potatoes ($18.95) or prepared Cajun-style with shrimp ($21.95). For a traditional American tavern meal, punch yourself in the mouth and then order a Big Shotz burger, with lacquered bacon, muenster, lettuce, tomato, and Bermuda onion, served with your choice of seasoned fries, kettle-fried chips, sweet potato fries, fresh fruit, or a small garden salad ($8.95).
Big Shotz's locations host a bevy of events and live music nights within their spacious, family-friendly interiors, so you don't need to hire a babysitter to take care of your parents or maroon the kids on a deserted freeway median to enjoy today's Groupon.
Big Shotz Tavern
At Big Shotz Tavern, chefs celebrate American comfort food with a vast menu of pizzas, burgers, and barbecue. They season and marinate chicken wings in homemade rubs, and whip up sauces and dips from scratch.
A bustling, lively atmosphere prevails in the spacious dining room. Big-screen TVs hover above the wraparound bar, and, in the warmer months, musicians serenade adorable diners with spinach in their teeth on the outdoor brick patio. The restaurant also hosts a weekly trivia night.
