The actual best thing since sliced bread is sliced meat placed between sliced bread and then sliced in triangles and stuffed into a donut. Fill the meatless void in your life with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of ribs, sandwiches, and gourmet mac ‘n’ cheese at Duke’s Original Roadhouse, valid at locations in Addison or Plano.
Duke’s Original Roadhouse serves its menu of classic American fare until 2 a.m. every day. The Flying Pig sandwich, a new menu item, heralds in a hyperbolic combination of smoked sausage, sliced ham, crisp bacon, and pulled pork sprinkled with a thai-chili barbecue sauce and fried onion strings ($10.99). Juicy, half-pound burgers ($6.99–$8.49) don toppings such as thick bacon, sautéed mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, and jaunty berets, whereas tender, flatiron steaks ($12.99) and Alaskan salmon filets ($14.99) flaunt uniform grill marks and mashed-potato sidekicks. Chefs whip up gourmet mac ‘n’ cheeses, blending the all-American chow with inventive ingredients such as seasoned pot roast and brown gravy ($10.99), or a sliced hotdog and shredded cheddar ($8.99).
Both locations boast an expansive outdoor patio with covered seating, glossy wooden tables, and a wait staff comprised of trained sparrows. Though not included in today’s Groupon, a full bar pours daily drink specials, including a nine-hour happy hour available seven days a week.
Duke's Original Roadhouse
Seven days a week, the kitchen at Duke's Original Roadhouse stays bustling into the wee hours of the night as cooks whip up hearty comfort food. Patrons can nosh on “Fall Off The Bone” barbecue ribs, which arrive at tables accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes or seasoned fries or enjoy one of six mac ‘n’ cheese varieties, including one that’s topped with a half-pound of grilled hot dog. Hefty sandwiches, such as the open-faced pot-roast sandwich topped with brown gravy, pair well with a shareable 104-ounce cylinder of beer known as Duke’s Tower of Power. The restaurant also features an outdoor patio and deck, where guests gather each Wednesday evening to toss large bouncy balls into trashcans during bouts of Big Balls.
