Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip ‘n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of barbeque, comfort food, and drinks at the Hickory Pit Too, located in Semmes.

- The Hickory Pit Too at 8919 Moffett Road is a throwback to a simpler time, when dinner was served at noon and supper was served about dark. When portions were generous and a bottle of hot sauce was on every table…They offer pulled pork plates, sliced beef plates, ribs and chicken — and just about any combination available. And their homemade sauce is worth a trip all by itself. – David Holloway, al.com
