Without steak, most Americans wouldn’t be able to justify owning such terrifyingly sharp steak knives, much less an entire rack of steak guns. Today's Groupon gives you a chance to use them: for $8, you get $20 worth of steak, drinks, and more at Pickles Steakhouse in Emmaus. Pickles' menu pulsates with prime steaks, super-sized entrees, and 22 beers on tap. Wrap food depositories around a stuffed Philly cheese steak deluxe ($7.99) or a Kobe-beef burger ($13.99). Triumph over epic portions and celebrate with a whistle-wetting beverage from Pickles' full bar. With more than 20 televisions strategically placed throughout the dining room and bar, the soft glow of entertainment vies for illumination domination with Pickles' nifty neon signs. The restaurant's eclectic, playful décor blends kitschy pop art, Greek-style columns, and gravity-defying merry-go-round horses floating menacingly above diners' heads, waiting to pick off forgotten garnishes with their cloven clutchers.
