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 $7, you get $15 worth of comfort fare and gelato at Cowboy Gelato.
Travelers poking along the historic Route 66 can journey to Cowboy Gelato for a respite from atmospheric heat with a hearty sandwich and a cup of smooth, icy gelato. Chrome trays convey globs of creamy italian ice cream and sorbet ($2.99–$4.99), available in cups containing up to four choices from a flavor selection that evolves as rapidly as the Texas triceratops population. Pique the palate for maximal icy pleasure and temper ice-cream headaches with selections from a menu that mixes southwestern and barbecue flavors. Savory sides such as crispy beer-battered onion rings ($2.99+) and crunchy fried pickles ($3.99+) set the scene for starring options that include the Bronson burger, which confronts bovine buffs with a monster slab of beef stuffed with cheddar, monterey jack, or pepper jack cheese ($7.49).
