Barbecue is a distinctly American art form, much like jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Discuss the smoky notes with this Groupon.

Ossie's Bar-B-Que

As a feature on Local 15 shows, longtime Mobile residents can fondly remember warm summer nights in the 1950s, when they’d cruise the parking lot of Ossie’s Bar-B-Que with their sweethearts, singing along to the radio and sharing milkshakes. Cheerful carhops would dart about the parking lot, toting baskets of fresh fries and tangy barbecue-pork sandwiches straight to car windows. Though Ossie’s closed its doors in 1984, loyal patrons never forgot the legendary barbecue joint where they received first kisses, proposed to their wives, and spent many a Friday night.

It was the owner’s son—Rudy Boutwell—and his son-in-law—Chip Deupree—who came up with the idea to reopen the popular eatery more than 30 years later. The duo unearthed a handwritten copy of Rudy’s father’s famous barbecue sauce and fired up the grills in the restaurant’s original location. Today, cooks continue to whip up the beloved barbecue plates, chic-loin sandwiches, and hand-battered onion rings that made the original location a local favorite. The skilled cooks use Chip’s mother’s recipe to craft the creamy potato salad that was lauded by reporters from Mobile Bay magazine. Succulent barbecue sandwiches get devoured within the booths that line the lively dining room; elsewhere, drive-thru service facilitates a quick snack within the comfort of a car or atop a small pony dressed up to look like a car.
