When a golfer seeks inspiration, she looks toward the skies over Scotland, just as a baker gets a second wind from his brochure of the Choco Mountain Range. Today's Groupon inspires with a saucy salute to Memphis: $20 worth of sweet meats and succulent, finger-licking barbecue for $10 at Lil' Piggy's Bar-B-Q in Coronado. Follow the sweet-smelling dreams that haunt long nights in your rib-shack.
Choose from one of a hundred beers stored cold in their bottles, and then prepare your wet-nap for a journey through a menu of savory porks and beefs cooked low and slow. Break in your barbecue fork on a piggy plate of pulled pork ($12.99 for a big portion), a round of beef brisket ($13.99 for a big portion), or baby back ribs served wet or dry ($15.99 for a medium-sized portion). Lil' Piggy's mouthwatering comfort food takes its cue from Memphis, where slathering style and smoky aromatics crown motivated pork-based cooking. While the mouth can't avoid a respectably sloppy time at Lil' Piggy's, the fingers can stay clean and cool through the bread-barricaded Bar-B-Q bacon burger with smoked applewood bacon, onion rings, and cheddar jack cheese ($9.49) or the lean pulled-chicken sammich topped with slaw and slapped on a potato bun ($9.49).
Your appetite is a barbecue geyser that needs sweet and savory alms to keep clear of delicious combustion. A person can always tell when the barbecuesplosion has been through town because of the molasses footprints and carelessly flung bibs that pave the streets. Start vindicating sauce stains at Lil' Piggy's, and keep an extra dining shirt in your back pocket.
