Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Joe's Underground Cafe. You must be 21 or older to redeem this Groupon and 18 or older to enter Joe's.
Fun-seekers descend into Joe's subterranean digs to eat, drink, and be merry with the help of daily lunch specials, nightly beverage bargains, and lively live music. A lineup of 12 pizzas, 17 sandwiches, and an abundance of appetizers, salads, and grilled eats offers patrons sundry ways to sop up domestic and imported brews and happy tears. Give your napkin a sense of purpose by ordering a plate of Joe's sloppy fries ($7.25), or offer warm shelter to an orphaned cajun dog, a feverishly spicy andouille sausage donning a shawl of remoulade sauce ($3.75). All items on Joe's grill menu cost less than $7; the tempting list includes filling eats such as the fried bologna sandwich ($4.50) and the meatball bomber ($6). Top off your tongue buds with a homemade dessert or your favorite mixed drink or shot from the full-service bar. Joe's Underground Cafe is open Monday–Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 a.m. and on Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Joe's Underground Cafe
When it comes to nightly entertainment, Joe's Underground Cafe fulfills plenty of pub requisites: trivia, poker, live music, and pint glasses brimming with domestic and imported beer. Although many of its dishes, such as Philly-style cheesesteaks and chicken wings, evoke classic pub grub, the cafe's culinary team doesn’t limit itself. Chefs cater to more refined palates with almond-topped baked brie, whip up comfort foods such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches filled with banana, and prepare homemade desserts.
The warm, no-frills bar sits at the bottom of hard-to-spot stairs, located beneath Augusta's SRP Federal Credit Union but still high above the city's subterranean mutant population.
