Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip ‘n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of upscale barbecue at The Blind Pig No. 55, located on 12 South. The Blind Pig plates traditional southern eats spun with head-turning ingredients, mixing old and new like a DJ in a pool filled with constitutional documents. Scramble for a booth or nestle at a table as you peruse the hearty and tasteful menu. Apply an old high-school wrestling move to the Pig burger, a special blend of fresh-ground chuck, brisket, and boneless short rib lightly dusted with Benton bacon, served on a soft potato roll, and sidekicked with caramelized onions and fried green tomatoes. Or jump into the ocean fully clothed with the hickory-grilled blue ridge rainbow trout with crab meat, scallions, and smoked bacon ($18). Lofted ceilings and partially exposed brick create a casual ambience for socializing, while mounted flat-screen TVs allow solo diners solace for pondering hand-to-hand napkin tactics.
- It was great!! Juicy, flavorful, smoky, awesome! The corn pudding wasn't sweet, the cabbage was tender and sweet and smoky, and the pork was perfect. And the pork came with pickles!! And those buns with butter flavor baked in!! We will definitely be coming back. – ehalvey, Visual Vacation
- You must try the memphis style baby back ribs and the sweet corn and poblano pudding which are equally delicious! – Lashona M., Yelp
