Though charcoal drawing was once the dominant artistic medium in America, precious few masterworks survived the realization that those early portraits could be crumpled up and used to smoke delicious stacks of ribs. Honor forgotten artists with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of barbecue at Famous Dave’s in Simi Valley.

Famous Dave’s dishes out a hearty menu of down-home barbecue drawing on founder Dave Anderson’s 25 years of culinary exploration and experimentation. Diners can kick off the carnivorous carnival with buffalo-style shrimp ($9.99) sporting spicy cornmeal breading and tiny Bills jerseys. To sate hungrier stomachs, pit masters slow-smoke ribs over smoldering sweet hickory fires to create The Big Slab of 12-bone ribs ($22.99). After first passing through a sauce-slathered shrink ray, Dave’s BBQ Buddies ($9.99) offer bite-size versions of the restaurant’s most popular sandwiches, including Georgia pork, Texas brisket, pulled chicken, and hot link sausage. Afterwards, a lineup of sugary treats, such as Dave’s famous bread pudding smothered in pecan-praline sauce and vanilla-bean ice cream ($6.99), pleases even the sweetest of teeth. The laid-back barbecue mecca also keeps eyes and ears entertained with its playful décor and blues- and klezmer-spiced soundtrack. Diehards can join Famous Dave's P.I.G. Club, designed to keep members current on the restaurant's happenings via email.
