Today's Groupon gets you in on a 60-year Houston family tradition that doesn't involve mowing Astroturf: $20 of bigger-than-Texas sandwiches and other comestibles at the award-winning and recently renovated Kahn's Deli for $10.
Being a traditional deli, Kahn's major claim to fame is its sandwiches, particularly its "world famous" reubens ($9.49–$14.99). If the regular Reuben (corned beef, swiss, cheddar, sauerkraut, mustard, and homemade Russian dressing on rye) isn't gigantic enough for you, you can always get the Biggio (with grilled Vienna knockwurst instead of corned beef) or the Olajuwon (corned beef and knockwurst). Other signature sandwiches include the world famous hot pastrami on your choice of bread ($9.49–$11.99) and the Marcia (mesquite smoked turkey breast, melted swiss, cranberry sauce, mayo, lettuce, and tomato on wheat, $8.49). Sports fans will find no less than seven sandwiches that finally allow them to indicate team preference through eating, including the Astros buffalo chicken with provolone, lettuce, tomato, and ranch or bleu cheese on ciabatta bread ($6.99).
Beyond edibles that can be encased in fresh bread, Kahn's also offers lunch special combos, breakfasts, salads, soups, and hard-to-find soft drinks such as Mexican Coke (made with cane sugar, $2.50), Original Dr. Pepper (also cane sugar, $2.50), Pepper's age-old nemesis Dr. Brown ($1.55), and fizzy Izzy ($3). One Groupon is good for two people, so you can easily buy enough to treat the whole clan while basking in free WiFi. Given the size of the sandwiches, you can be sure there will be leftovers. Kahn's is open seven days a week until 9 p.m.
