Ordering multiple food items prevents midmeal boredom, thereby eliminating the need for postappetizer-conga lines. Keep bellies entertained with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Cajun-style tapas and drinks at The Big Ugly.

The Big Ugly synthesizes small plates of Cajun-centric fare with a fully stocked bar and the spinning sounds of house DJs. Recall summer nights spent gadding about New Orleans by munching on Bourbon Street gumbo—a medley of sausage, crawfish, peppers, onions, and celery in a spiced stew ($9)—or stifle angsty hunger pangs with fried-green tomatoes layered with goat cheese, homemade marinara, and capped with parmesan and parsley ($8). Alligator bites fried in the Cajun tradition arrive at tables served with chipotle mayo ($8), perfect for practicing gator wrestling in a controlled setting. The Big Ugly’s dim interior lighting casts a romantic mood on an elegantly elongated bar and hardwood floors. Quaff a Fat Tire or Magic Hat #9 on the open-air outdoor patio replete with its own bar while relaxing or listening to the witty banter of nearby wood nymphs.

Great service!

I'm glad I found this place through Groupon. The service was a little slow, but our waiter was really nice and personable - so that made up for it. The food was really good!
