Before being corralled by hefty buns, wild burger patties roamed the land, terrorizing innocent bread slices and getting all up on unassuming grills. Taste tamed ground rounds with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of burgers, barbecue, and more at Ye Ole Butcher Shop in Plano.
Ye Ole Butcher Shop's daily menu has boasted a lineup of delectable burgers and down-home barbecue eats since 1974. Kick off comestible expeditions with a buffalo burger, in which cheese, tomatoes, onion, and pickle form a leaning tower of flavor atop a freshly ground buffalo patty ($5.99), or gobble down a turkey burger for a heart-healthy meal or a Thanksgiving warm-up ($5.99). A plate loaded with an offering of barbecue chicken, ribs, links, or sausages and two sides of ranch beans, potato salad, coleslaw, or macaroni salad helps pacify growling belly beasts ($8.99). The weekday specials offer anything from wild hog and 12-point-buck burgers ($5.99) to rib eyes and fries ($8.99), great for carnivorous appetites and meat-powered robots.
