Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Firebird Rotisserie and Sports in Dunwoody.
Firebird's menu of classic pub fare beckons guests through its doors, which stay open until 2:30 a.m. every night. The signature Firebird rotisserie chicken ($9.95 for a half chicken) fills plates with flame-roasted poultry shrouded in fragrant marinades and seasonings. Meanwhile, a half rack of slow roasted ribs ($9.95) spends 24 hours marinating in a dry rub before drifting toward tables with a side of sweet-potato fries and coleslaw. Hoagie rolls overflow with marinated beef tips fresh from the grill as well as lettuce, tomato, sautéed onions, and a side of horseradish sauce when the tenderloin beef-tips sandwich ($9.95) is ordered. All meals can be paired with glasses of wine ($4.75–$8) or beer flights ($5.95) that change monthly to keep palates from parching with four 5-ounce pours of brewed ambrosia.
Flat-screen TVs placed throughout the restaurant keep patrons informed on the latest sports happenings, and fresh air on the covered outdoor patio delights nonseeing senses. But no matter where you sit, the friendly, attentive serving staff tries to meet any request, except for those beginning with "I dare you to . . . " Firebird also hosts team trivia, live music, DJ performances, and karaoke throughout the week to entertain feasters.
