Smoke is useful for communicating messages over long distances, such as, "Help us!" or, "Help us eat these ribs!" Send your taste buds a smoky message with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Southern pit barbecue and drinks at Willie Jewell’s Old School Bar-B-Q.
Inspired by the story of a 16-year-old orphan with a sparkling personality and a penchant for cooking, Willie Jewell’s Old School Bar-B-Q serves up heaping helpings of traditional slow-smoked barbecue from recipes passed down through generations. Diners step under a corrugated tin roof and follow a bright red arrow toward a menu saturated with succulent meats and savory sides. Pork cooked for 12 hours and stuffed between bread ($6.49+) goes head-to-head with beef brisket rubbed in a secret spice blend and suspended over smoldering wood chips until it breaks down and reveals its undercover flavor ($6.49+). Four signature sauces bathe tender vittles in sweet and tangy hickory, spicy classic, traditional hickory, and carolina classic, accentuating the down-home essence of suppers such as smoked turkey ($8.99 with two sides) and half chicken ($8.99 with two sides). Third, half, and full slabs of St. Louis ribs are also available for tickling practice ($8.99–$19.99).
Side dishes provide a refreshing detour with plates of green and baked beans, mac ‘n' cheese, and collard greens ($1.79 each). Sweet treats, including banana pudding and pecan pie, are hard-won awards for clean-plate-club inductees prone to eating their trophies ($1.49–$2.49). Wash the meal down with Willie Jewell’s famous grape-juice lemonade amid the restaurant's warm wood paneling, cozy wooden booths, and shelves of essential barbecue ingredients.
