What You'll Get
Steakhouses are famous for hearty dinners of state-sized meat slabs, tortoise-sized baked potatoes, and troughs of beach-ball-sized peas. Enjoy a meal of similarly colossal flavors with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of meaty cuisine and drinks at Jess and Jim's Steak House, a Martin City steakhouse that has been family owned and operated since 1938.
Jess and Jim's menu features exclusively hand-cut Angus steaks, so waste no time in ordering the Playboy Strip, an award-winning 25-ounce KC strip served with your choice of twice-baked potato, french fries, cottage fries, rice, or green beans, plus salad or steak soup ($41.99). If you'd rather have a less prodigiously sized entree, opt for the 12-ounce prime rib (with the same choices of sides, $21.99), or have a Missouri freshwater staple—a 16-ounce channel catfish (with sides, $14.99). If you like a meaty challenge of meat-sized proportions, take on the 30-ounce porterhouse and choice of sides ($41.99). To collaborate on a large dish, you can split one entree order with another diner for $8.95. To celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary or narrowly avoiding indictment, or to rebel against the strict diet your adoptive cow parents forced on you as a child, grab today's Groupon and sink your teeth into a huge, perfectly sizzled slice of domesticated ungulate flesh.

- Close your eyes and imagine you're hearing the KC Playboy Strip -- a 25-oz sirloin -- cooking. Next imagine eating it. If you are not within a one-hour drive of Jess & Jim's when you perform this exercise...well, that'll be unfortunate. – John Mariani, Esquire
- We all had great steaks - tender and cooked to perfection. – almamelina, Citysearch

About Jess And Jim's Steakhouse
Celebrating its 74th anniversary on April 15, 2012, Jess And Jim's Steakhouse has stood the test of time. The Van Noy clan owns and operates the throwback eatery and leads a staff whose dedication dates back, in some cases, more than 40 years. They serve hand-cut Sterling Silver beef sourced from the Great Plains and showcase fresh varieties in a chilled meat case.
This family-friendly establishment owes at least some of its popularity to prominent men's magazines. John Mariani of Esquire magazine named their Playboy Strip one of the 20 best steaks in America in 2008. The cut—which weighs in at a whopping 25 ounces and arrives with soup, salad, and choice of potato—was named after the publication whose 1972 story by writer Calvin Trillin placed the restaurant in sight of the public eye nationally. The menu also includes lobster tail, house surf ‘n’ turf specialties, pork chops, and chicken-fried steak. Guests can sip libations such as Boulevard Brewing Company's chocolate ale at the bar, which itself features a suspended model-train track and live singers harmonizing with the tiny train whistles every Friday night.
