Family psychologists suggest sharing a meal with loved ones as a way to connect, release repressed "mmmm" sounds, and prove which family member has been a robo-spy all along. Refuel your clan with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of homestyle Texas-inspired dinner fare at Silver K Café in Johnson City.
Chefs at Silver K Café pay homage to the best of Texas dining, plating hearty chicken and seafood orders off of a weekday homestyle-supper menu and a weekend fine-dining menu. Though menus change, like the public's opinion on Burton Gilliam, from week to week, the fine-dining menu stars plates such as roasted-artichoke pasta, a bed of farfalle peppered with marinated artichokes and roasted tomatoes ($15.95), and shrimp paired with a smooth herb-and-olive tapenade. Sunday through Thursday, Louisiana shrimp-and-tomato cheese grits ($15.95) waltzes out of kitchens. Fried chicken proves compatible with creamy honey-pecan sauce ($10.95), and the Texas-size pork chop ($16.95) takes more than 10,000 people and eight years to finish. Live local music and a bottle of Texas wine expertly accent dinner-table conversation (not included in this Groupon).
