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 $22, you get a Southern-style comfort-fare dinner for two at May’s Counter (up to a $45 value). The dinner includes the following:

  • One starter or salad (up to a $13 value)
  • Two entrees (up to a $16 value each)<p>

May’s Counter, situated near the University of Arizona campus and called a “go-to eatery and hip hangout for college athletes” by the Arizona Daily Star, satiates students, friends, and families with a menu of Southern-style comfort fare. Ignite appetites or build an unwieldy skyscraper with a waffle-crouton-laden crispy-chicken-club salad, drizzled with chipotle ranch, or split an order of Tot-chos, tater tots covered with cheese, jalapeños, and chicken. Diners can savor the eatery’s signature chicken and waffles, which includes four wings, two waffles primed for coating in syrup, and a selection of hot sauces. The Wildcat burger’s grilled onions and sriracha ketchup help demonstrate school spirit, and the chicken-fried steak, drenched in country gravy, sates stomachs with its classic, down-home taste. Blues music courses through the restaurant’s speakers, providing a soundtrack to sports on flat-screen TVs or to dramatic encounters with napkins.

May’s Counter

Head chef Aaron May, a Culinary Hall of Fame inductee, presides over the kitchen of May’s Counter as the diner-style eatery turns out made-from-scratch southern cuisine. With bluegrass music thrumming in the background, diners delve into the kitchen’s trademark fried-chicken-topped waffles, or nosh on corn dogs surrounded in waffle batter. Red stools line the counter at the full-service bar, manned by bartenders equally willing to mix sophisticated cocktails or slide a cold PBR into a brown bag. As they feast, diners nestled in cozy booths can watch sports competitions unfold on flat-screen TVs, rather than watching their water glasses compete for the title of most transparent.
