Every morning, farmhands rise at dawn to guzzle a dozen eggs, devour a slab of bacon, and shake a cow until it makes buttermilk. Sample the fruits of farm life with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of breakfast fare and country eats at Country Kitchen in Columbia and Jefferson City locations.
Since 1939, Country Kitchen's menu of all-day breakfast staples, hearty dinner options, and farm-fresh fare has sated honest appetites with down-home flavor. Start mornings right or throw dinner off the tracks with breakfast choices such as the Country's Best Skillet—a bed of diced potatoes cushioning scrambled eggs, diced ham, crumbled bacon, and sausage links, all wreathed with laurels of bacon ($8.99). Light, fluffy pancakes are delivered to tables au naturel or with a variety of sweet and fruity toppers. To craft country fried dinner steaks, Country Kitchen's cooks fry breaded, seasoned beef to golden-brown crispness, then pour on a peppered country gravy ($9.99), and the Big Bad Bacon burger loads four strips of cherrywood-smoked bacon onto a dual-patty beef truck, along with traditional burger fixins and a smothering of barbecue sauce ($9.99). Pair a hearty meal with a similarly substantial dessert, such as a hand-scooped shake or malt flavored with Oreos, caramel, or any of the neapolitan three and served in a sizeable tin ($4.95).
