In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth. For $10, you get $20 worth of savory barbecue fare and refreshments at Dave's Brick Pit BBQ & Catering on SR-13.
Though not traditionally considered a first-date food, a romantic pit-barbecue lunch or dinner functions as a relationship barometer, marking a milestone in your relationship's level of security and sauce. Take your saucy sweetie to Dave's Brick Pit BBQ for the restaurant's titular barbecue, made authentically in a brick pit over hickory and oak wood. Try a pulled-pork sandwich with house-made slaw, or a traditional cheeseburger with sweet-potato fries. Once the sun is hanging low and all the day's duels are done, start dinner off with appetizers such as fried pickles, fried corn nuggets, or fried mushrooms. Dinners come on plate-shaped pedestals, served with two sides and two pieces of garlic bread for sopping up loose sauce. Endulge in a tumbling-off-the-bone baby-back-rib dinner or brick-pit pork. Balance the scales with a tossed salad, then give up the battle altogether and indulge in a gooey dessert. A variety of libations are also available to cleanse barbecue-saturated palates; draft beer comes by the pitcher, or get fancy with a margarita or Jim Beam and coke.
Dave's Brick Pit has a homey atmosphere aided by a fun-loving staff and wood-paneled walls lined with photos of local hunters, fishermen, athletes, and car lovers posing with their souped-up automobiles. The tables are coated in easy-wipe tablecloths, foretelling the decadent sauce-swim in which your meal will indulge. The wide-ranging menu also features addictive early-morning meal options, with breakfast served on weekends. Dave's comeback pancakes create regulars of casual visitors, with cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg in the fluffy buttermilk flapjacks. Try the double stack alongside a bowl of stone-ground grits and a heady pour of mimosa.
