Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Texan fare at Wil Jenny's in Overland Park.
The Wil Jenny's menu tantalizes tasters with the promise of sizzling hand-cut steaks and homemade salsas and sauces made from fresh vegetables, fruit, and dairy. Smoked daily, meats form the heart of dishes such as Street tacos, which enshroud skirt steak in lime, onion, and a cocoon of queso fresco and cilantro ($13). Smoked prime rib saunters onto tables draped in au jus and accompanied by galloping horseradish cream ($18 for 12 oz., $21 for 16 oz.). Shrimp curls up in a bacon blanket and cuddles with jalapeño before teaming with smoked tomato and cheddar grits to create the barbecue shrimp and grits ($14). The Davy Crocket slathers pulled pork and slaw in barbecue sauce ($8) and covers them in a coonskin cap.
Hunting trophies hang above the wooden tables and chairs in the tile-floored dining room, which is accented by a large stone fireplace where cowboys can warm their hands and melt the steel in their eyes. Although this Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, Wil Jenny's stocks a full bar of refreshments. The restaurant creates a lively atmosphere by providing a free jukebox and live music every Friday and Saturday night.
