Most reviews I've read say this place is slightly better than Daddy D's. We had the St Louis ribs, baked beans, potato salad and also had the collard greens. This place is no match for Daddy D's. I had exactly the same meal that I ate at Daddy D's. The ribs potato salad and baked beans. If Daddy D's didn't... More

Truly BBQ cooked slowly. Very ample servings and the brisket was excellent. The hot BBQ sauce is spicy hot but the sides are very good. The beef ribs were too dry. It looks to be more of a carryout restaurant than a sit down type of place. I live in Texas and have been to many BBQ s and would... More

This is true southern BBQ at it's best. They smoke their meats on site...the aroma makes your mouth water. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich with a side of their slaw and a side of greens. The medium sauce is just right, but the next step up is also great. The ribs are a great choice as well. Don't... More

Oh. My. Gosh! Love this place! The brisket is melt in your mouth delish, and the sweet potato fries....oh, don't get me started on the sweet potato fries! Yum, yum, YUM! (Honey mustard to dip them in and I am in Heaven!!) They were closed on Sundays for awhile, but I'm glad they're back as it's the perfect day when... More

We are Southerners and are therefore pretty picky with our BBQ. Went there for lunch and it was pretty good. I asked for my BBQ with sauce on the side, but it came with sauce on it. We ordered a large pan (About 5 pounds) of pulled pork for a party. We got home and it was sliced brisket. Took... More

We went into Goldies BBQ tonight as a family birthday dinner. Mr. Bibbens and his daughter came out and brought some specialties to share. The food was really good! I had pork ribs and the sauce was really nice but the smoke and flavoring was really well done. I would rival this against anything in the Portland area. I sampled... More

We hired Goldies to deliver 9 racks of beef ribs and 13 pounds of smoked chicken breast to our party in SE Portland. We selected Goldies after touring local BBQ restaurants and carts. Their ribs were the best we found, and the fact that they had the experience and capacity to deliver an order of this size sealed the deal.... More

Just walk into Goldies and you know that you're in a good BBQ spot. The smoked meats, awesome sides and friendly staff are why we come back every time we're in town. One of our favorites is the pulled pork sandwich, but you really can't go wrong with anything you get here!

We've been here about 5 times in the last 4 months. The BBQ is great. We usually get the pork ribs or pulled pork sandwiches. Their food has always hit the spot and their staff have always been very friendly. It's just the best BBQ in Vancouver which keeps us coming back for more!

A warm little hole in the wall. Chairs a bit worn, panting tape used as decor, and the best brisket this side of Texas. So very good. The chicken was a bit dry, but flavorful, the pork was meh, but GET THE BRISKET. Just a Cavet, if you want the fried okra, it is done in a beet batter, not... More
