Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stovetop suitors with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual American cuisine at Gullifty’s.
Gullifty’s chefs sculpt a melting pot menu that bursts with barbecue, seafood, chicken, and pizza, followed up with succulent helpings of house-made desserts. As guests enter the eatery, desserts tempt them from glass cases, with new york cheesecake ($3.99/slice), deep-dish chocolate-mousse pie ($4.99/slice), and flourless chocolate cake ($4.99) offering sweet bites and time-shares in Candyland. Diners prepare palates for after-dinner dessert with barbecue dishes such as the barbecue broken ribs, slathered in Gullifty’s Lip Smackin’ barbecue sauce and buttressed by corn bread and sweet-potato fries ($12.99). Sandwiches, from the batter-dipped fish sandwich ($6.99) to the Club Grill’s turkey, bacon, and veggies ($7.99), roam the restaurant, sating stomachs and ganging up against lone forks.
A vast parking lot lies behind the restaurant, where visitors leave their cars to play and make friends before venturing through a rear entrance that overlooks the dining areas. Brick walls and neon lighting bathe the bar area in coolness, and glass-block walls add to the ambiance by filtering light throughout.
