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 $7, you get $14 worth of Southern barbecue and drinks at Moe's Original Bar B Que in Daphne. Celebrated for its Alabama style pulled pork and fall-off-the-bone ribs, Moe's is leading a Southern soul-food revival with a menu of hardwood smoked meats, two signature sauces, and a slew of home-style sides. Sandwiches ($9) include pulled pork, smoked chicken, smoked turkey, and Shrimp Moe Boy. Platters provide options for a bread-free bounty of Southern-style meat, such as chicken wings ($10), catfish ($10), or ribs ($11.25–$13). All sandwiches and platters come with your choice of two sides, a drink, and vessel of vinegar barbecue sauce.
Once a historic home, Moe's Daphne location has been converted into a Southern-themed mecca for foodies and blues gurus. The restaurant has pine floors and walls, fireplaces, a large porch, and a bar made from an old carriage house. Every weekend, the Daphne location hosts live blues bands, whose woeful, down-tempo songs sound more like romantic fugues fit for royal eardrums after inhaling a slab of Moe’s tender ribs.
