Yummy but a bit pricey.

The coleslaw was crisp, cold, and uninspired, the corn-chowder too thick but flavorful and made well. The garlic bread was made with a little too far in advance. But the star of the meal, the ribs and sauce...just yummy. Very homey place. you can go in your jeans, talk relax and get sauce on... read more

I love their ribs. Tender, flavorful, a whole lot of yum! Nice space for family dining. Reasonable prices.

I was with my daughter-in-law, she ordered the small pulled pork sandwich with potato wedges. The roll was toasted quite nicely and the pulled pork came in a separate container. You go up to the condiment bar and dress it with anything you like; pickles, onions, lettuce, relish, mayo mustard catsup, etc...also there is a very large pot with warm... More

Look, I LOVE the food at Porter Street... it's enough for a die hard carnivore to sigh contentedly... But GUYS.. PLEASE, for the love of god, new floors, clean the tables, wash the windows, and CLEAN THE PLACE UP! Even having said that, I'll probably eat at Porter Street this weekend, I'm in a big 'ol meat sandwich mood!

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.
