When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's Groupon demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $20, you get $40 worth of grilled fare at Cadillac Ranch.
Revelers at Cadillac Ranch sup upon steaks and burgers while raising a pint to televised sports action and free-style mechanical-bull riding. A menu of protein provisions fills the sizzling grill with options such as the big barbecue burger, a half-pound Angus patty festooned in smoked bacon, sautéed onions, and cheddar cheese like a chef's prom tux ($10.95). Steak hankerings succumb to the 10-ounce sirloin, which is broiled and laid upon a demi glaze beside steak fries and green beans ($19.95). The sauce-laden half slab of Jack Daniels barbecue ribs ($14.95) rides a slow wave of warmth to smoky tenderness, and penne pasta swirls in the clouds of creamy tomato sauce and grilled chicken of the Chicken Diablo ($13.95).
Bold diners climb aboard the mechanical bull, which replicates the exhilaration of a real rodeo without the raucous crowds of tumbleweeds. Following the robotic jaunt, patrons bask in the glow of an indoor fireplace or the more than 30 flat-panel TVs while souvenir guitars jealously supervise joviality from the restaurant's paneled walls.
