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. Travelers poking along the Historic Route 66 journey to family-run restaurant Cowboy Gelato for a respite from atmospheric heat with a hearty sandwich and a cup of smooth, icy gelato. The menu stars pulled pork dripping with barbecue sauce, crispy beer-battered onion rings wrapped in checkered paper, and crunchy fried pickles. The Bronson burger confronts bovine buffs with a monster cheddar, monterey jack, or pepper-jack cheese-stuffed slab of beef, stylishly slathered in mayonnaise and outfitted with pickles, tomatoes, and onions. After ingesting your daily dose of meatberg, saunter to the gelato bar, where chrome trays convey globs of creamy Italian ice cream. Like the Texas triceratops population, the homemade gelato flavors evolve often, but past flavors include pistachio, papaya, and spicy strawberry habanero.
