Rated by WWeek "Portland's Best" a few years ago, the usual hipsters took about badmouthing it, but rarely for the food or service, which were both excellent. Whether it did or did not contribute to gentrification is another review. No indigenous species were sacrificed in...More

Another trendy place that has been written up in foodie magazines, but personally I find it lacking any real flavors. Just meat and meat, and not much sauce. Usually crowded and over priced and the seating is extremely uncomfortable. Try The coop or Clay's BBQ...More

The BBQ beans were a slam dunk! Brisket was a bit fatty, the Lima beans with bacon was a swoosh! Fried catfish left a bit to be desired but the tartar sauce brought it home! A smidge pricey. Definitely plan to go back and try...More
