Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of ribs, burgers, and more at The Shack Hometown Grill, located on Post Road.
The Shack Hometown Grill adds sizzle to juicy burgers, mouth-watering ribs, gooey nachos, and other comfort-fare favorites. Crispy tortilla chips lend structure to an avalanche of tasty toppings in the local favorite Sidetrack’s nachos ($10.95), and a Vermont cheese board impresses first dates and curd connoisseurs with its creamy private stock cheeses and tart apple accompaniment ($9.95). For the main event, The Shack’s versatile menu offers up everything from avocado-slathered veggie-burger sliders ($8.95) to a decadent full-rack of County Line baby-back ribs balanced by nutritious sweet-potato fries and cool house-made slaw ($18.95), ensuring that even beef-jerky-for-breakfast carnivores eat their veggies.
The family-friendly eatery holds kids’ movie nights on Tuesdays and Fridays, and live music on Saturdays gives adults a chance to finally perform the interpretive dance version of Death of a Salesman before a live audience.
