The spaghetti-Western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of Western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get an Italian dinner for two at On the Rocks (up to a $48.97 value) in Cottonwood Shores. Dinner includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $8.97 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $19.99 value each)
Set atop Texas hill country, On the Rocks curates views of Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, glimpses of falling sunsets, and a menu of diverse Italian dishes. Hover over a bowl of jalapeño-and-cream-cheese dip, a blend of jalapeños, artichoke hearts, and parmesan and cream cheeses (a $6.99 value), which can be sifted from its vessel by swarms of low-swooping pita chips. Among the entrees, cheese ravioli stuffs pasta pillowcases with parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta, romano, and asiago cheese, being slept on by a full-bodied, creamy marinara sauce (a $12.99 value). Eaters illuminate their senses with the italian chicken fried steak (a $12.99 value), a tenderized rib eye battered and fried in a splash of slick olive oil that trips up unsuspecting tongues. The shrimp scampi, gulf shrimp sautéed in a garlic-butter white-wine sauce (a $15.49 value), and the veal parmesan ($19.99), lightly breaded veal cutlet fried and topped with cheese, roost on beds of angel-hair pasta.
On the Rock entertains guests with live music and dancing on a regular basis, and its positioning atop Little Castle Mountain gives guests an aerial view of stunning lakescapes and undulating uplands, making it an excellent location for announcing your previously-secret ability to fly.
