In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce (as chronicled in the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Sauce). Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth: for $20, you get $45 worth of Texas-style barbecue and drinks at Joey's Bar-B-Q in Pomona.
At Joey's Bar-B-Q, charcoal, mesquite, and hickory woods join forces with USDA Choice meats, and 25 years of family recipes to create a menu dripping with smoky, saucy, Texas flavors. Torture taste buds on a rack of smoked baby back pork ribs, served with a choice of baked potato, yam, or charbroiled vegetable kabob ($21.95 for dinner). Or, sate the most demanding of carnivorous claws by opting for The Works––a heaping helping of ham, beef, chicken, beef ribs, pork ribs, and country-style sausage links, lacking only in its absence of bacon ($27). Those who prefer their sauce in a glass rather than on their hands can augment a 12-ounce USDA Choice filet mignon ($28.50) with one of the restaurant's many beers, many of which are procured from local breweries, or plucked straight from L.A.'s natural beer fields.
While stocking up on saucy staples, visitors can soak up the down-home ambience by feasting on picnic-style dining tables, which give diners a taste of the outdoors, while keeping them safe from its man-eating grass. While Joey's Bar-B-Q boasts several mouthwatering meat-stablishments, today's deal is only valid at the Pomona location.
- The Works includes ham, beef, chicken, beef ribs, baby-back ribs, hot links, and several sides---a mountain of food recommended for sharing. – Gayot
- I ordered the slice pork sandwich and OMG I was so happy after the first bite!! The pork slice were thick and moist. The BBQ sauce was sweet and tangy, and the fries were prefect! – Miki W., Yelp, 5/26/09
