Small Place, Big Taste

We were looking for a sit down BBQ place, it seems like the better ones now are served cafeteria style and we wanted table service. This place had some good reviews so we drove a few extra miles to check the place out. The restaurant is small and informal, tucked into a corner of a strip mall... read more

Food is average, not bad but not as good as some BBQ I've had in other parts of the country. Their BBQ sauces are good and they can be purchased in the bottle.

My son and I stopped on a whim. It was end of lunch beginning of dinner. The ribs were salty dry and tasteless. The mashed potatoes were watered down with no taste. The Mac and cheese fell in place with no taste. The French fries were limp. Could not even consider this a one hit wonder. Would not return or... More

My honey and I were starving and decided to stop for lunch on the way home. Decided on this place because he had never been there and I was there so long ago I forgot how bad it was. We knew we were in trouble when the waiter came back with our plates literally 60 seconds after placing our order.... More

This was our second visit to Porkopolis; despite a dust storm, the place was packed on a Friday night and the line continued to grow. We went during happy hour on our first visit a few weeks back and were very pleased (and full) with the options available. We shared the fried dill pickles (thin and crisp...large portion) as well...

The brisket was awesome, lots of flavor and juicy. The pulled pork was a little dry but tasted good. The fries were basic and the jalapeno slaw didn't really have any heat. The dressing on the slaw needed some acid to wake it up. It looked like they could use another server or two even in a half filled dining... More

Visited for dinner with a friend, shortly before closing. Ordered the baby back ribs and beans, friend ordered the red-neck tacos. Both were huge amounts of food, especially for a "starter" that the tacos were. The ribs were very tender and meaty, had to add a little bbq sauce as I like them "wet". The beans were ... beans.

Good experience - clean fun hip place, kids are welcome but its definetly a bar. Very busy, but able to handle the crowd. French dip was great, pulled pork sandwich was heavenly, wonderful seasonings.

This is the second time I've eaten at Porkopolis. On both occasions I was disappointed. The brisket was overcooked, dry, chewy, and seemed to have more fat and grisel than beef. The pulled pork was also extremely dry and chewy. The coleslaw was ok, but looked days old because it had browned. The mac and cheese was extremely bland, and... More

Loved the service, but the food was very disappointing. Basically no flavor anywhere: ribs, brisket or pulled pork. It's hard to find decent Q in the Valley these days; all the good places have either folded or changed ownership and gone downhill.
