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). Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth: for $5, you get $10 worth of Southern barbecue fare and drinks at BubbaChuck's BBQ in Winter Haven.
BubbaChuck's specializes in Southern barbecue, stuffing growling gullets with slow-smoked meats and sides prepared using homemade rubs and sauces. The menu fires up taste buds with the signature barbecue eggrolls, a mix of pork and slaw shrouded in an eggroll wrapper and deep-fried ($4.95). A bevy of sandwiches served on texas toast, including pulled pork ($5.55) and sliced brisket ($6.55), busy chompers as eyes ogle the green walls of the cozy casual dining room.
Hearty meals such as the St. Louis-style ribs come escorted by an entourage of Texas toast, plus two sidekicks such as BBQ baked beans, coleslaw, and fried okra ($10.95). The veggie salad, a fresh bed of greens with tomato, onion, cucumber, cheese, and croutons, sates both the herbivore-oriented and carnivorous canines desiring a leafy spread ($4.95). The 1-pound B.F.T. (Big Freakin Tater), whether loaded with butter, cheese, sour cream, and chives ($5.95), topped with pulled chicken ($6.95), or covered with chopped brisket ($7.95), irons out pesky belly wrinkles.
