Hands down the best BBQ restaurant in town. I’ve been good to Porters since it was the red food truck years ago and haven’t had a meal that I didn’t like. There meats are cooked to perfection and never dry nor do they over sauce...More

Definitely the best true barbecue in the area. The smell alone is worth a visit. The pulled pork is lean, tender and extremely tasty. Bought several pounds for a July 4th picnic and everyone agreed it was excellent.

Excellent bbq. The pulled pork and brisket are great. Have to try the molasses bars. The Mac and cheese is good. Lots of great flavors. Service is great. Seating can be limited as Porter’s is very popular.

Great food and great portions! My husband adored it, calling it the best he's ever had! I'm not a huge bbq fan, but even I thought it was really good!
