We found this place by accident while waiting for Chinese takeout a few doors over. The place is what you would expect for a roadhouse BBQ. Pretty dark, nothing fancy - bar stools need a little carpentry work. However, one of the bartenders, Nancy, is great. She is friendly and has a great relationship with the regulars (which we now...

The food was excellent, the way BBQ should be. This is a bar with great food, not a great restaurant with a bar. I would not bring children here.

I'd like to point out something that some people seemed to have missed about Porky's Roadhouse. It is a bar, not a restaurant. There will be smokers there and quite possibly smoky. It is legal to smoke there. Having said that, I had the smoked turkey and it was delicious, the mac & cheese bites were pretty tasty also. The... More

My husband and I have been wanting to try this place for a while. I wanted to leave as soon as I walked in due to the smoking going on. My husband wanted to stay, so we stayed. I had chicken wings (very good), my husband had ribs (just okay), onion rings (very good). I didn't think smoking was allowed... More

Simply said t place has great food! I've had burgers, wings, beef and pork and all were spectacular. Have never had a bad meal! It really changes atmosphere at night. Loud people, loud music and lots of smoke so not good for kids after 6:00 especially on weekends.

I'm an independent food critic currently searching for the best burger in my area. My first stop was Porky's Roadhouse. This was my first visit and I can guarantee I'll be back. My burger was perfect. Ground beef and brisket on a Kaiser roll, flanked by baked beans and crispy fries. I was there for dinner service and greeted immediately.... More

Nothing fancy, the chow is good and you get plenty. The property is well maintained and clean. The cornbread is recommended.

Wife and I had a late lunch there, I had the ribs and she had a BBQ salad. My rib plate had four huge ribs that were tasty but two were nice and tender and two were like leather. The sides were all pretty good. My wife's salad was good and loaded with meat. The beer was also two for... More

Great food, get it to go, keep your receipt and count your change. People smoking in the bar which was full of riff raft and drunks. New owners recently I suspect but same old regulars that drove away walk in regular customers over the years. I wouldn't go near this place after dark and neither should you.

The bartenders were more worried about taking shots and playing with each other than serving clients
