Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Jake's Country Cafe.
The resident chefs at Jake's Country Cafe cobble together old-fashioned country cooking traditions with unique house recipes to construct a menu of homemade American country dishes. Munch on meal-prefacing portions of fried green tomatoes ($4.59) or limber chomping muscles with chili cheese fries ($4.29) before tooth-wrestling giant portions of country-fried steak, each piece of which is breaded by hand and set adrift in a pool of house-recipe country gravy like a stowaway caught on a gravy boat ($6.99). Lunch enthusiasts savor fist-filling burgers ($4.99+) made from fresh ground beef that has never known the icy sting of the freezer, in between sending french fry care packages to stomachs. A pair of side dishes such as homestyle mashed potatoes and fried okra sidle up alongside dinner entrees, ready to back them up in escalating food fights.
