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 as the Red Neck Tacos. Three generously portioned servings of pork and jalapeno slaw atop a sweetly delicious corn cake. The slaw gave this combination a really great kick. My only criticism of the corn cake is that it had obviously been made earlier because it had to be cut with a knife. I prefer them fluffy and soft to the cut - made to order because they take very little time on the griddle.
Last night, I opted for the short rib served over garlic mashers and topped with teriyaki veggies. It was a very appealing presentation and the flavors didn't disappoint. The short rib (singular) was quite large and more than I could finish.
Hubby ordered a 2 meat platter - brisket (delicious!!) and ribs. Smoked perfectly and finished with a nice glaze of sauce. His sides (getting on a carb high) were creamed corn (oh my goodness delicious with what appeared to be fresh sweet corn in a smooth cream sauce) and mac 'n cheese. Not the best mac I've ever had, but far better than what most bbq places serve. It was piping hot out of the oven with melted cheese lightly browned on top. This is a lot of food and again, more than he could finish.
Service is very good and they serve the food quickly.
