What You'll Get
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 fare and drinks at Red's Backwoods BBQ. Today's deal is valid for dine-in at Red's Boca Raton location.
Red's Backwoods BBQ's menu is a culinary compendium that features a secret house-made wing rub and versions of barbecued staples such as chicken, beef, and pork. Peruse the menu for your preferred sauce-slathered selection, from the North Carolina–style pulled-pork sandwich ($7.99) to the full rack of St. Louis–style ribs served with cornbread and two sides such as the sweet-potato fries and homemade mac 'n' cheese ($19.99). Bite-sized protein is available with the popcorn chicken entree ($9.99), and cantankerous stomachs and sauce-deprived fingers can be quelled with the backwoods sampler, a bib-worthy platter of pulled pork, pulled chicken, and barbecue beef ($15.99).
For parties or home gatherings, Red's offers catering services (not included in this Groupon) for either pickup or full-service delivery. 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.

About 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.
