In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce (as chronicled in the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Sauce). Taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and drinks at Red's Backwoods BBQ in Boca Raton. The slow-cookery's extensive menu features a secret house-made wing rub and versions of barbecue staples like chicken, beef, and pork. Red's prides itself on catering to entire families, which is why it offers an extensive kids menu and a Moon bounce made entirely of rib meat.
Red's Backwoods BBQ
Most barbecue joints slather their food in one type of sauce—the smoky Texas style, the sweet Memphis style, or the vinegary North Carolina style. That’s not the case at Red's Backwoods BBQ. There, six signature sauces from various regions coat fall-off-the-bone ribs, slow-cooked pulled pork, and juicy chicken.
The chefs also use a secret rub to bring out the flavor of their homemade gator bites. And though the large portions of meat and two sides offer filling meals by themselves, taste buds pine for decadent Southern sweets such as housemade banana pudding, Kentucky bourbon pecan pie topped with scoops of ice cream, and frothy root-beer floats that harken back to a simpler time when everyone moved at a slower pace and rode dinosaurs everywhere.
