Mastering the art of barbecue involves tasting multiple sauce samples, just as painting a still life of a fruit basket requires the artist to lick each section of the palette. Paint your tongue tangy with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of ribs, barbecue, and sauces at HillBilly Deluxe BarBeQue in Mishawaka.
Barbecue lover Michael Kauffman puts his Tennessee roots on display in the newly opened HillBilly Deluxe BarBeQue, serving up a menu packed with southern-infused fare and monsoons of sauce. Starters such as fried green tomatoes ($5.95) and deep-fried zucchini ($5.95) rev up dormant digestion engines for dinners of ribs ($13.95 for a half slab) or rib tips ($8.50), both of which arrive at tables with corn on the cob and corn bread. A bratwurst basket ($5.50) comes with two sides, such as hillbilly baked beans or hillbilly potato salad, and strings of warm pulled pork ($5.50) serve as the perfect building materials for aromatic welcome wreaths. HillBilly Deluxe BarBeQue’s dedicated, friendly staff welcomes all levels of barbecue warriors, including perpetually sauce-covered veterans in need of fresh bottles to bathe in.
