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 $5, you get $10 worth of American fare at Gil’s Bar-B-Q.
Gil’s Bar-B-Q's cuisine creators dish out a mélange of barbecued meat that can be read about on the straightforward menu. Flavorify mouths with a sweet sampling of Gil’s slow-cooked meats—including beef, chicken breast, sausage, ham, turkey breast, and pork ribs ($3.75+)—are doused in a cascade of Gil’s scrumptious barbecue nectar. The kitchen staff delicately bakes each meat in a wall-sized wood-burning pit to sizzle a juicy delicacy and stamp it with smoky flavors and a “Made by Gil’s” tattoo. The dinner plate (starting at $4.95) presents patrons with one meat and a choice between two sides such as coleslaw crafted from Gil’s family recipe or onion rings that accost the palate with flaky goodness. Guests can complete dining fests with a number of Gil’s other taste-bud-enticing items such as salads, burgers, wings, and desserts. Patrons can settle into the laid-back diner outfitted with green-backed booths and an eclectic mesh of pennants tacked along the walls to prevent them from tickling nearby ceiling fans.
