The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Today's Groupon presents another option when there are no illusionists handy: for $10, you get $20 worth of tasty southern fare and drinks at Jefferson's Restaurant in Brentwood.
An extensive menu of fresh and comforting treats takes shape in Jefferson’s laid-back interior, where friendly servers warm up crowds with starters such as fried dill pickles ($3.05/$5.75), corn nuggets ($6.15), and Ultimate fries, smothered with three types of cheeses, Cajun seasoning, and a layer of crispy bacon ($6.25). Spice up a slow workday or a slow-moving fasting day with an order of Jefferson's fully customizable wings ($6.95–$28.50), or nosh on a fried oyster po' boy, a hearty hoagie stuffed with fresh gulf oysters that are battered and fried until golden brown ($7.95). Other seafaring portions include fried catfish ($7.45), a spicy shrimp basket ($7.95), and a melodious band of fish 'n' chips ($7.75) fronted by soulful slaw and backed by harmonious hush puppies. Customers craving candied confections can find fulfillment in slices of creamy peanut butter or pecan pie ($2.95 each).
It was more than two decades ago that Jeff "Jefferson" Webb opened the first Jefferson's Restaurant in Jacksonville, Alabama, funding the venture with a little help from his parents and the profits he earned from selling his precious baseball cards. Since then, Jefferson's Restaurant has expanded to twenty across six states—each one dishing out the signature wings, burgers, and fresh gulf oysters that made the original location famous. At the Brentwood location, diners can lounge on a sprawling outdoor patio, watching football on flat screens and clinking frosty brews beneath the sun.
