Breaking bread is a bonding experience, encouraging new friendships and testing the strength of communal sledgehammers. Swing into sustenance with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of ribs, sandwiches, and seafood at Dick's Last Resort.
At Dick's Last Resort, a surly staff dispenses napkin-nullifying eats by the plateful—or bucketful—during spirited lunch gatherings, dinner rallies, or late-night noshings. Pull aside a quick-witted waiter and kick-start meals with a variety of finger-food favorites such as deep-fried crab balls ($7.99), or dive right into a half-pound bacon-cheddar burger and corral protein-packed energy for nightshifts as the mini-golf windmill. For mammoth appetites, chefs load buckets o' grub with piles of fried catfish, fried shrimp, or a fusion of barbecue ribs and buffalo chicken wings ($13.99+). Bourbon-glazed salmon is festooned in a Jim Beam lacquer ($16.99), and hunks of succulent sirloin sidle up next to caramelized onions and sautéed mushrooms to craft a refreshing Southwest steak salad ($14.99).
Foregoing awkward pleasantries and standard niceties, the staff at Dick's Last Resort couples attentive service with full doses of sarcasm, dishing out paper-made dunce hats, balloons, and unbridled enthusiasm for shredded inhibitions. A full schedule of live entertainment compounds the festive atmosphere, where diners are encouraged to kick back and watch games or practice retorts against defenseless ceiling fans.
Dick's Last Resort
Though waiters are commonly revered for their courtesy, the servers at Dick's Last Resort skip the usual niceties in favor of sarcastic quips. When they aren't jotting down orders and engaging in verbal jousting matches, they happily dole out balloons and paper-made dunce hats to diners willing to play along. Live entertainment and sports games shown on big screen TVs sustain the restaurant's festive, freewheeling atmosphere. Over in the kitchen, chefs complement the front of the house's high spirits by incorporating different kinds of spirits into bar food classics, from salmon coated in a Jack Daniels glaze to buckets of shrimp simmered in beer. The culinary team crafts plenty of other alcohol-free goodies, including deep-fried gator and frog legs, BBQ pork ribs, and half-baked chicken cooked over a half-extinguished fire.
