Studies have shown that indulging in messy meals leads to more captivating dinner conversation, as well as the potential to create priceless works of napkin art. Invite your inner condiment Picasso out to lunch with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of barbecue at Texican’s BBQ Pitt in Crestwood.
With a menu of appetizing dishes, Texican’s satisfies stomachs with its tongue-tantalizing Texas-style slow-smoked meats and sauces, served as condiments at the table. Whether hunkering down for an in-house experience or ordering chow on the go, the friendly barbecue buffs make it easy to fill up on feasts such as the hearty hickory-smoked beef brisket, either in a bold, savory sandwich ($4.99) or part of a meal with your choice of two sassy sidekicks such as skillet-fried taters and slaw ($6.99). More adventurous diners can duel with a posse of four fiery wings ($4.99–$6.99) as taste buds take part in an old-West-style shootout on the mouth’s main street. A serving of cherry-wood-smoked pork spare ribs ($4.99–$6.99) vies to steal eaters' attention from its succulent cousin, the 18-hour smoked pulled-pork sandwich ($3.99–$5.99), flanked by a bevy of personal-size spectators including mac ’n' cheese or cinnamon apples. Also served in pints ($3.25) and quarts ($5.99), the sides can feed a family or an entire army of little green men.
As a locally owned eatery, Texican’s whips up hefty portions of flavorsome fare while sticking with tried-and-true barbecue methods for loyal locals and visitors alike. With a cozy feel accented by wooden floors and country décor, the atmosphere encourages diners to relax and feel at home enough to kick up their feet and unhook their belts to make room for every last bite.
