In the late 1800s, thousands of Texans struck it rich when they tapped into veins of thick, dark, tangy barbecue sauce (as chronicled in the Oscar-winning film There Will Be Sauce). Today's Groupon gives you the chance to taste this natural bounty while it's still hot from the earth. For $15, you get $30 worth of ribs and drinks at The Rib Rack. Your Groupon is redeemable at both the Waterford and Lathrup Village locations of the righteous ribporium, so round up a group of hungry haberdashers for a feral feast.
The Rib Rack's extensive barbecue menu of hand-held meaty eats will quell carnivorous cravings for any winged, finned, or hoofed beast or vegetable. Opt for a half-rack of its fall-off-the-bone baby-back ribs ($10.95), a 12-piece bucket of chicken ($18.95), or one of its signature ribs and chicken combos like Mark's family style #4, with four pieces of chicken, a half-rack of ribs, and a choice of side ($19.95, serves two to three). Aquaphiles will enjoy the 10-piece shrimp dinner ($8.95) served with choice of potato side and a roll, or the fish 'n' chips ($7.95), while sandwich fans can nosh on a bread-enclosed handful of pulled pork ($4.95) or a blazin' chicken sandwich ($4.95). The Rib Rack's savory side selections feature classic southern specialties such as mac 'n' cheese ($1.95) and collard greens ($2.45), and are sure to evoke memories of childhood picnics or romantic Fourth of July fleeting glances and barbecue-laced first kisses.
The Michigan-owned-and-operated eateries boast friendly and boisterous environments for your feasting comfort and make ideal locations for any barbecue-themed birthday party or page-turning book-club meeting. Although barbecue sauce is an essential ingredient in any home-repair undertaking, a visit to The Rib Rack will enlighten you to its other uses as a tasty rub, dip, or swimming pool for savory meats.
