When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is, "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's deal demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $17, you get $35 worth of grilled fare, drinks, and more at Embers Tavern and Grille in Columbia.
A full menu of burgers, steaks, beer, and more welcomes guests to Embers, where meats are slow-cooked on an open grill fueled by flaming hickory chunks. Glimpse sports action on one of the bar's hi-def televisions before starting the feast with an appetizer of thickly sliced onion rings ($3.95) or a basket of fried, hand-battered pickles ($3.95). Burger buffs can sample the Embers Angus burger, whose 10 oz. compacted disc of premium Black Angus beef is first hand-patted to perfection, then served between the two hemispheres of a toasted kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a pickle ($7.25). Or, make your mouth merry with the delicious flavors of a full rack of baby back pork ribs, which are designed to fall off the bone like jam sandwiches sliding from a flimsy picnic plate ($16.99). For the quenching of thirst, the bar stocks a rotating selection of drafts and a large gathering of domestic and imported beers.
Embers entertains patrons with live music on Fridays and Saturdays, featuring popular local bands and musicians (check the schedule here). Enjoy dining on the new patio, where maroon umbrellas protect diners from sun, rain, and falling birds, or stay inside and challenge your meal partner to a game of pool or darts.
