Stopped in here with hubby and friend before going to a concert on Tuesday night. Popped in here about 5:30 and it was empty, but it filled up very quickly, and the place was full by 6pm. The Tuesday special is their "rib plate" -...More

We stopped in because Podnah's was on Diners, Driveins and Dives. My husband and I shared a Pittboss platter and we could not finish it all. It probably could have fed 3 people, but we did get to try all the different meats. We had...More

THE place for smoked meat. Take note of the daily specials schedule - prime rib on Saturdays, individual beef ribs on Mondays are favorites of mine. Why do I not get here more often?

My son dragged me across town on a Saturday night to eat here. WOW, so glad he did! The wait was short even for a weekend, and the smell made my mouth water. My wife ordered the smoked prime rib, I went for a la...More

It was my last night in Portland so I thought I would get BBQ. This place had a busy, friendly vibe. I sat at the counter and ordered a nice IPA and the "Pit Boss" - a combo of brisket, pulled pork, ribs and smoked...More

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.
