Barbecue is a distinctly American art form, much like jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue fare at Slabtown Ribs & BBQ.
Slabtown Ribs & BBQ conquers tempestuous tongues with a menu of pork, beef, and chicken fortresses sprinkled with a shower of barbecue sauce. Slabtown’s St. Louis–style pork ribs test the structural integrity of plates with a half rack ($13), full rack ($25), or car-tipping brontosaurus rack. Wandering appetites can taste worldly flavors with the texas plate, a succulent serving of sliced brisket and sausage ($12.50). Meat-munchers can gild their entrées with an extra side of sauce including the kansas city classic, texas hot, and carolina-style mustard ($0.50 for a small, $2 for a large). Choices of sides include collard greens, baked beans, mac 'n' cheese, or buttermilk biscuits.
Slabtown prepares its meat fresh daily and may occasionally run out of select menu items.
Slabtown Ribs & BBQ
The menu at Slabtown Ribs & BBQ contrasts starkly with your garden-variety fast food menu. That's because Pitmasters can spend most of a day tending to their meats, with smokers set to low heats for long periods of time to bring out each cut's flavors. Though this flavor alone is juicy and savory, they can further enhance these flavors with one of their trio of barbecue sauces. Pitmasters take cues from barbecue regions from throughout the country to make sauces including the tangy Carolina mustard, the spicy Texas hot, and the complex Kansas City classic.
While the Pitmasters specialize in brisket—which they put in everything from platters and sandwiches to the house chili—they also prepare a range of other barbecued meats. They cook up Zenner's German sausage with a scoop of sauerkraut, serve barbecue chicken in a flavorful sauce, and grill their pork spare ribs St. Louis style—in one giant arch.
