Barbecue is a distinctly American art form, much like jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of barbecue fare and soft drinks at Dixie Belle’s Bar-B-Q in Apex.
Dixie Belle’s Bar-B-Q's meats, such as a platter of juicy pulled pork ($7.99), spend 3–12 hours soaking up flavor vapors from slow-burning hickory logs to acquire their telltale pink inner rings and alluringly husky voices. A half slab of ribs slathered in homemade sauce ($8.99) keeps the wet-nap industry flourishing, and sandwiches count among their ranks the Western ($6), a hunk of flame-nuzzled beef brisket accompanied by mushrooms, sautéed onions, horseradish mayo, and the score of a Sergio Leone movie. The menu mates most dishes with a choice of more than a dozen flavorful fixins, which include fried okra, collard greens, and cinnamon apples; fixins are also available in dinner-size half-pint ($1.99), pint ($3.49), or quart ($6.49) servings.
