According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, humans cannot attain self-actualization without first tending to such basic physiological needs as water, sleep, and brisket. Achieve overall fulfillment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue fare at Opie's Barbecue in Spicewood.
The flame-wielding chefs at Opie's Barbecue whip up hearty platters to create a menu of smoky, stomach-sating barbecue grub. Nosh on succulent slices of brisket ($6.50/half-pound) or tender baby back ribs ($20/full rack) while Opie's tangy sauces distract mouths from blurting out credit-card numbers. Side dishes such as the tater-tot casserole ($2.95) and spicy corn ($2.95) back up mighty meals with complementary flavors. Meanwhile, a lineup of libations, including fresh-brewed sweet and unsweetened tea ($1.75), waits in the wings to extinguish incendiary thirsts or a pyromaniac friend's creations.
Like many Texans, Todd Ashmore grew up eating barbecue at gatherings with family and friends, but when backyard cookouts weren't enough for him, he began driving for miles in search of the perfect sauces and meats. Eventually, Ashmore decided to create his own supply, opening Opie's Barbecue so that he could consume sauce-covered brisket, ribs, and pork chops with his family and friends at any time. Sunlight pours in over sturdy wooden tables and chairs in Ashmore's clean, casual restaurant, where he often savors the aromas of the eatery's signature sweet and spicy sauce alongside customers while clad in his usual flip-flops-and-shorts ensemble.
