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. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth at Slope's BBQ in Cartersville. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get $25 worth of dine-in or carryout barbecue and beverages.
• For $20, you get a family pack of barbecue fare and sides (up to a $45.99 value).
Slope's BBQ serves up old-fashioned Georgia-style barbecue, fusing the flavors of premium meats and signature southern sauces. Bread-enclosed beauties such as the jumbo barbecue pork or chicken sandwich ($4.90) offer a relatively tidy take on sauce-soaked favorites. Combination plates promise a harmonious hodgepodge of happiness for customers' internal habitats by pairing entrees with two side items, bread, and a pickle. The rib plate mingles nicely with sides of macaroni and cheese and fried okra ($12.30), and black-eyed peas and collard greens add old-school vegetable flair to the pork and chicken plate ($9.60). Put a cap on a stomach chamber with fruit-filled treats, such as the blackberry cobbler ($4.05) or banana pudding ($2.80).
Slope's BBQ's family packs deliver picnic-ready fare, satiating stomachs with a choice of a pound of pork, a rack of rib and pork, or a whole chicken. Each meal is flanked by buns or a dessert as well as a gallon of tea. Diners can also pick three–four fixings from a menu that has enough sides to make an octagon jealous.
