Barbecue has held a cherished place in American culture ever since Andrew Jackson earned the moniker "Old Hickory" by naming a wood-smoked beef brisket as his Secretary of the Treasury. Take a taste of cabinet-level cuisine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue at The Famous Rib Shack in San Bruno.

The Famous Rib Shack pleases hungry bellies and the mouths that married them with a menu brimming with saucy, smoky meats and tasty fixings. Friendly staff members prepare each dish of lip-smacking barbecue the old-fashioned way, slow cooking slabs of pork ribs ($14.95 for a half; $26.99 for a full), beef short ribs ($29.95), and beef brisket ($15.95) to fall-off-the-bone tenderness over an open flame while reciting the pledge of allegiance in their best William Faulkner voice. Meat eaters unable to choose just one item from the bib-worthy bounty can combine two or three choices into a sauce-based smorgasbord that pairs the proteins with cornbread and a choice of mac 'n' cheese, poppy-seed coleslaw, or two other sides ($14.95–$19.95). Or, save some stomach space for a sweet and sticky dessert such as cobbler or sweet-potato pie ($3.95) to complement a plate full of savory vittles the way an elaborate pyrotechnics sequence complements a middle-school play.
