Like a locked steamer trunk in an attic, barbecue recipes are better when they contain a closely guarded family secret. Finally taste the truth with this Groupon.
$12 for $24 Worth of Barbecue and Vegan Food
The menus include a slow-roasted barbecue pulled-pork sandwich with fries ($9.59) and a barbecue pulled-seitan sandwich on multigrain vegan bread with garlic-and-vinegar slaw ($9.19). Alternatively, visitors can build their own TV dinner with entrees such as brisket or wood-grilled portobello mushroom and sides including creamy cherry slaw and vegan shoestring fries ($12.99–$19.99).
Double Wide Grill
You wouldn't expect a restaurant that specializes in beef brisket, wood-grilled steaks, and burgers to be referred to as "a hidden vegan-friendly gem" by a blogger from Yummy Plants. And yet, Double Wide Grill satisfies both meat- and vegetable-lovers, with menus that run the food-chain gamut from lentil veggie burgers to St. Louis–style pork ribs. Adding to the eclectic feel, the restaurant is housed in a converted gas station where vintage pumps still stand out front. Indoors, the decor pays homage to these rugged beginnings with bottle-based chandeliers, a hubcap ceiling, and a vintage trailer that recalls Floridian vacations to the wetlands where all lawns' pink flamingos migrate every year.
Patrons can also stop by on weekend mornings for brunch on the outdoor patio, or hang around until late at night for karaoke and more than 30 types of beer at the license-plate-covered bar. Sports fans can watch games on four 10-foot-wide high-resolution projection screens.
