Smoke signals can convey important messages over vast stretches of land, especially when the smoke is hickory flavored and the message is “I found the delicious.” Answer the signals with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of barbecue and more at Texas West BBQ, which has locations on Fulton Avenue and in Roseville.
Voted Best BBQ by Sacramento’s CBS affiliate five years in a row, Texas West BBQ treats palates to an array of tender cuts hand-rubbed in spices and slow-cooked to exude a signature smoky flavor. The menu foregrounds Texas West’s barbecue platters of tri-tip steak ($13.99) and sliced beef brisket ($11.99). Each dish is laid aside texas toast, and guests can then feel free to use two homemade sides to dress the beefy bundles of joy in coleslaw onesies and top them with macaroni-salad bonnets before holding an optional sweet shower of fresh-baked peach cobbler ($3.99). Meanwhile, parents concerned about televisions hypnotizing their children and convincing them to eat violent video games can treat kids to safe, savory portions such as corn dogs and fries ($4.99).
