Like nearly every place in Portland, and America, these days, the wine in no bargain, but I was really impressed with the selection, and got a bottle Cameron Pinot Noir to go with my Pit-Boss Platter. Contrary to at least one other review, my brisket...More

Good food not to expensive. Parking can be a pain somewhat but that’s pretty much the town. Enjoy the slaw best I had in a very long time. Good sauces to mix up the tastebuds.

One of the better bbq in Portland. Staff was friendly and the tables were clean. Nice variety based on the expected meats. The really fantastic items were the corn bread and coleslaw. The coleslaw had quite a kick to it so be aware.

Wonderful place for lunch or dinner. Dinner specials looked great but are only available after 5pm. There was a small band on Saturday afternoon. Great selection of beer and wines. Inviting atmosphere with indoor and outdoor eating area. Delicious BBQ with decent size portions. I...More

Ate here with friends before a show at the Alberta Rose. Between us we tried all the meat on the menu and everything was excellent. The meat was moist, with just the right amount of smoke. We also tried most of the sides and all...More
