Excellent barbequed meat

Once in a while we'll have one of the sandwiches offered - usually beef or pork - and they're excellent and very large and will definitely fill you up. About once a month we get a whole rack of ribs to go - the beef is good, but does not have a whole lot of meat. The pork is out... read more

We have wanted to try this place for some time and during a recent family visit we finally stopped. Wow, what took us so long! This place is awesome! Awesome BBQ!! Best tri-tip we've ever had and we have had lots of BBQ. Get the tri-tip!!!!!! I won't takeaway from other items as their chicken was great, burger was great,... More

Best BBQ I've found outside Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City, MO. You have to tear the meat off the bone - a good thing - versus seeing it drop off like the ribs were boiled. One of a very limited group of BBQ houses that do beef ribs. And their sauce is just spicy enough for me. Prefer the location... More

Down home BBQ diner. Large entrée portions with generous side servings, but a bit pricey.. Bring your appetite.

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 your shirt in a family-friendly atmosphere!... More

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.
