Barbecuing is a distinctly American art form, much like listening to jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon to The SugarHouse Barbeque Company. Choose between the following two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and Cajun fare.
- For $27, you get lunch or dinner for two, including one appetizer (up to an $8.99 value), two entrees (up to a $20.99 value each), and one dessert (up to a $4.99 value; up to a $55.96 total value).
The SugarHouse Barbeque Company's savory menu seamlessly blends Memphis-style barbecue with classic Cajun specialties. Appetizers such as the cherrywood-smoked chicken wings arrive sporting a house blend of spices (an $8.99 value) and raring for a lifeguard-supervised dip in wading pools of house-made blue cheese or ranch dressing. For the main course, a slow-smoking process renders tender, succulent offerings such as tender pork ribs (a $13.49 value for a half slab) programmed by nightclub hypnotists to exercise Pavlovian powers over salivation. Fruitwoods envelop marinated dixie chickens in plumes of sweet smoke (a $7.49 value for a quarter bird), while the Cajun-style Bourbon Street jambalaya plays host to a spicy festival of crawfish tails, andouille sausage, and smoked chicken (an $8.99 value). Three-course meals reach their confectionary conclusion with desserts such as homemade pecan pie à la mode (a $3.99 value).
The SugarHouse Barbeque Company
The SugarHouse Barbeque Company's owner, Bill Smithers, recommends the cherry-smoked chicken wings or the carolina pulled pork. Regardless of what diners choose, they'll enjoy the truly southern environment Bill has cultivated at his barbecue restaurant—a warm family-friendly atmosphere permeated by a sense of respect for the food, diners, and servers. Skilled barbecue chefs send out dishes from a menu of dry-rubbed Memphis-style specialties that let the meat shine through the seasoning, whether it's turkey breast, chicken and ribs, or beef brisket. The platters all come respectfully dressed in a choice of four sauces: the signature sauce is sweet and mild, whereas the hot sauce gets its fire from a healthy dose of cayenne, the mustard sauce's unusual bouquet adds depth to smoked meats, and finally, the carolina pig sauce is made from a traditional recipe that uses cider vinegar and a special blend of spices. To cap meals off, diners can choose from a menu of southern specialty desserts that include classics such as pecan pie, bread pudding, and lightly battered wraparound porches.
