Getting food is more convenient than it used to be, when you had to wait for the milkman to deliver a jug of milk and the strawman to deliver a tray of straws. Get it all at once with this Groupon.
- $11 for four Groupons, each good for $5 worth of corn on the cob or loaded, regular, or sweet potatoes ($20 value)
Under the thatched roof of the Corny Island cabana, diners order from a small but hearty menu of roasted corn on the cob and loaded baked potatoes. After an ear roasts for 45 minutes, the charred black-and-yellow kernels—grown sweeter and more flavorful—withstand a deluge of flavored butters and seasonings. Butter comes in flavors such as garlic, spicy Cajun, crab, and sweet lemon-lime; customers can also adorn their cobs with a pat of plain butter. Next, they hold their buttered corn beneath a raining cloud of parmesan, lemon, or chili pepper. Potato-eaters can choose an extra large potato, then crown it with the likes of sour cream, cheese, bacon, and chives. A simple but filling menu, a whimsical stand on the boardwalk, and the opportunity to customize a whole meal or snack—these things and more keep fleets of fans returning to Corny Island.
