The title says it all. 20 plus dollars for soggy, tasteless, char-less ribs. They can't spell BBQ. A total waste of over $20. I threw it all away.It is also a filthy grease pit. If you go, look around at the ceiling, floor and kitchen. Then go to the dirty bathroom and throw up those ribs.

This place has the best Tri-Tip sandwiches, they are served on a seasoned french roll and served with chil beans, potato salad, coleslaw, or .soup. It is about $15 for a meal, chips are extra, but it fills me up, and I am a beg eater.

We were passing through Eureka checked on Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat. Almost past this place because of some of the reviews. We decided to take a risk and stopped at Porters. The food was excellent! Best Tri-Tip Sandwich ever! Don't let the negative reviews let you pass this one up.

We stopped for Wendy's (next door), but the minute we smelled the pit just behind the restaurant, we walked right past the fast food. We got a tri-tip sandwich and 1/2 chicken. The rub was an interesting blend of spices and the warm bbq sauce was a nice compliment to both beef and chicken. Since we were heading the Avenue... More

Everything-- EVERYTHING! here was fantastic. The beans were a perfect accompaniment to the tri-tip (also good the next day on a picnic) which is served in abundance. The sauce. I could make a cocktail out of the sauce and drink it.

I heard great things about Porter Street BBQ and I really wanted to try it out with my family. When we walked into the restaurant we were not acknowledge. I softly said in a medium voice, "Do we just sit anywhere?" To one of the workers, a lady who was just chit chatting to another customer. We stood at the... More

I can not figure out why this place gets any good reviews! We took a guest there for dinner. Maybe it's OK for a quick sandwich at lunch but...IT IS NOT A DINNER VENUE! You order at a counter, the menu on the wall is confusing, you're rushed, and no explanation of anything. After much confusion we ordered 3 dinner... More

Tri-tip sandwich done medium was very very good. I LOVED all the options to put on top. A bit pricey, but yummy!
