Although fine diners promise common groceries a glamorous gourmet life, only a pub provides an environment where food can kick back and relax in a stew of its naturally laid-back flavors. Feast on cozy cuisine with today's Groupon: $15 for $30 worth of dinner grub or $7 for $15 worth of lunchtime eats and drinks at Wooden Nickel Pub & Eatery locations in Sublimity or Silverton. Serving up fresh fodder, from bread and buns to french fries and sausage, Wooden Nickel takes comfort food to new levels of edibility by smoking, curing, and brining all meats in-house. The menu offers savory options such as the slow-smoked barbecue beef brisket ($11.25), the 12-ounce rib-eye steak ($14.95), and the 2/3 pound Rhino burger, whose ravenous rectangular bun is fed with thick strips of bacon and four swiss cheese slices ($9.95).

Wooden Nickel Pub & Eatery
For 60 years, Wooden Nickel Pub & Eatery has served up hearty eats in a wood-paneled bar with games, live music, and the familiar ambience of a hometown hangout. The pub's cooks smoke, cure, and brine meats in-house, sandwiching them within breads baked on-site. In addition to slow-smoked prime rib, German sausages, and sizzling fried chicken, they simmer pots of jambalaya or shrimp and grits. Diners can find the same savory, homestyle food at a second location in Sublimity.
