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 $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and drinks at Tommy's Country BBQ in Ocala and Silver Springs.
With its homemade fare and home-feel atmosphere, Tommy's Country BBQ has served comfort food to its friends and neighbors for more than 10 years. Starting with only USDA Choice meats, high-quality produce, and hand-forged iron tongs, Tommy's Country BBQ makes every item from scratch, such as the half slab of baby back ribs ($12.95) or the 20-piece basket of fried shrimp ($14). Before enjoying the 10-ounce cut of filet mignon ($13), nibble on the fried pickles and peppers ($4.95) or Ocklawaha River gator bites ($8.95), which have a rounder, more u-shaped flavor than fried crocodile. Tommy's Country BBQ's homemade sides include mac 'n' cheese, coleslaw, and cheese grits, and the peach cobbler ($2.99) makes a delightful dessert, especially when also slathered in barbecue sauce.
