Pulled pork, BBQed ribs, tri-tips served with fries and cole slaw, take-out sandwiches, Porter street Barbeque has it all.

My wife picked the place because of my love of bbq. I set the bar high to be fair. What I experienced was an eclectic mix of burned bread, overcooked meats, and a sauce that tasted of kc masterpiece. Not a fan, but it was fed in quantities that will keep me fighting for another day.

Worth the stop. Fast food that isn't fast-food. Friendly staff, pretty good food. I might be a little spoiled because of great BBQ in Kansas City and the rest of the midwest, but this was a reasonable substitute when on the West Coast.

I always think I will try ordering their hamburgers, but the tri-tip always wins. You can get a tri-tip sandwich in either 6" or 12" sizes and any condiments you might think of are available to add to your sandwich. Tried the BBQ pork and chicken and they are good, but my fav is the tri tip.

Tri tip seems to be the house speciality. So I get thr pulled pork . Not bad, everyone else gotthe tri tip ane really enjoyed it. No fries! but that was ok because they had sides like potato sald (very good) cole slaw and chili.

Very few places seem to get the approval of the entire family but Porter Street Barbeque is one of them. We visited here a few years back and again today and everyone was happy with their selection. We liked the pulled pork and tri tip sandwiches. I like how the BBQ pork is served in a container allowing the customer... More

Maybe it's just me, but the sliced pork sandwich was barely edible. It was sliced thin and grilled till every last grain of taste and moisture was eliminated. If I eat there again, I wouldn't order that. Atmosphere is coffee shop mediocre.

They are known for their tri tip sandwiches. Always good but the inside of the restaurant itself is disgusting, tired and on serious need of a remodel. I order take out because it is very uncomfortable to eat in there.

I have not been here is several years. Used to go here before we moved and get a pound of the tri tip meat and make sandwiches as we wanted them at home. The quality of the meat (sandwich) was Very Good. The service here was Excellent. The price (around $9 for a small tri tip sandwich) is a little... 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
