According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig-picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Celebrate saucy beards with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of classic barbecue fare at Shane’s Rib Shack on University Avenue in Clive.
Skewering up a menu of barbecue favorites in a no-hassle, family-friendly setting, Shane's Rib Shack slathers up saucy good times via its slowed-cooked ribs, pulled pork, and chicken seven days a week. Venture to the edge of meat madness with a full rack of ribs ($18.99), served with two heaping sides. Bone-phobic folk can opt for a six-piece plate of fresh, never frozen, chicken tenders ($6.99 for six pieces), while pairing them with a corn muffin ($0.75) and a dousing of barbecue or signature wing sauce. The smothered chopped pork sandwich dons a fashionable fedora of coleslaw, making it an ideal companion for patrons flaunting equally stylish oversized bibs ($5.99). Finish each feast with a sweet iced tea ($1.49–$1.99) or a rich brownie ($1.29). Those with restrictive, gluten-free diets may peruse a menu chock-full of edible decoys that include chopped barbecue chicken and pork plates, as well as the classic beef brisket salad, which, while fashionably flavorful, does not double as a skirt.
