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 $10, you get $20 worth of tasty barbecue fare and drinks at Luckie B's Bar-B-Que, located on 4th Street North in St. Petersburg.
Luckie B's cooks up batches of authentic barbecue, smoking meat up to 10 hours to create a tender, robust flavor. After memorizing the menu, hang a fang on a 1/3 rack of baby back ribs, dry rubbed and slow smoked with your choice of sauces ($9.95), or befriend the barbecue-smoked half chicken, rotisserie smoked and lightly seasoned ($8.95). Other edible options include salads, sandwiches, and a plethora of sides. A full liquor bar helps keep conversations lubricated, and a relaxed, family-friendly vibe will make diners feel like their clingy home is following them around again.
- Luckie B's brings a Carolina bent to its menu, and that means mostly pork. And that brings three options: • Spare ribs, if you like to gnaw at bones to get your meat. • Baby back ribs, if you like to pull the bones away from the meat and stack them on the side before attacking the meat. • Pulled pork, if you don't even want to see bones. The good news is, all of those options are good here. — Jim Webster, St. Petersburg Times
- Don't be fooled into thinking it's only BBQ classics though - with innovative starters and sides alongside yummy burgers and entrees, you'll find a variety of southern-style foods that will keep tickling your taste buds in new ways every time you visit. — Summer Lott, Metromix
