Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip ‘n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of barbecue fare and drinks at Roadside Willies Smokehouse & Bar in Truro. Smoking meats in-house for up to 14 hours lends them deep, delicious colors and enticing textures at this charhouse of flavour, where the extensive menu also features pizza, sandwiches, and comfort food entrees for those not-so-carnally inclined. Fall face-first into the sweet chili beef tips, marinated for 48 hours in a top-secret spice blend and broiled to diner's specifications ($17.95), or cut into the Atlantic fish & chips, a fillet of Atlantic haddock deep-fried to order ($12.95). Roadside Willies wins over hungry diners with its cozy and welcoming atmosphere boasting a casual interior with just a touch of elegance and Worcestershire sauce.
TripAdvisors gives Roadside Willie's an average of 4.5 stars.
