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 Southern fare and drinks at Kodiak Jack's Restaurant and Saloon.
Kodiak Jack's Restaurant and Saloon, a country dance bar, gussies up local meat and produce for a menu of hearty Southern-inspired fare alongside beers and cocktails. Reminiscent of the mandatory hug that begins any business meeting, beef ($9.99), portabello ($9.99), and lean buffalo burgers ($12.99) embrace a multitude of toppings to solidify their stake of Kodiak Jack's signature sauce. Petaluma Hill garlic jack and cheddar cheeses melt between pieces of freshly baked bread ($8.99), and the Rustler salad uses its alluring baby greens and candied pecans ($6.99) to flirt with the Bayou Gal plate's catfish fillets with rémoulade sauce ($11.99). Ginger- and root-beer floats ($4.99) join traditional hops-laden beers and other refreshing liquids on the drink menu.
Kodiak Jack's cultivates a welcoming ranch atmosphere with wagons, twinkling lights, and country vignettes on a demi-balcony surrounding the rustic wooden dance floor, which hosts live music and DJs. The karaoke corral welcomes crooners and caterwaulers every Thursday and Saturday night, and the club's mechanical bull tenderly whispers the secret of life into every successful rider's ear. Kodiak Jack's also hosts beer-pong tournaments, theme parties, and other festive events.
