I went to Goldie's for the first time last month for my birthday dinner. I am a BBQ snob after living in the South and I'm always on the search for the best BBQ. Everyone claims to have it but Goldies truly does. It's the best BBQ I have had since moving back to PDX. The atmosphere is great, the... More

Went on a Sat afternoon. Order at counter and they bring food to table. Wooden tables and benches. The Brisket sandwich was great as was the pulled pork - and this quality BBQ is why you go there - the side dishes are just average, Will have to return for a rib rack. This is a lunch or very casual... More

The meat is smoked under smoldering dirty smoke conditions giving the meat an unpleasant creosote bitterness. I burped up campfire for hours. To add insult to injury, the meat was held cold and reheated after ordered, in my book I call that "leftovers". The bright spot was friendly service and great sauce.

One of my friends recommend this place for good BBQ. Wow, just pulling into the parking lot a person can smell the wonderful aroma of the restaurant's offerings. I got a sausage sandwich with spicy sauce. It was delicious, both the meat and the bun. My husband got the brisket dinner with baked beans and cold slaw sides. Everything was... More

We went there for some lunch. Walked in and there were two kids, maybe 9 years old, that were working over the candy machine hard to get free candy right in front of the oblivious gal taking the order. Really bothered us as they were obviously getting candy out for free, plus candy now on the floor, plus where are... More

Goldie's has some of the best ribs and brisket in the metro area. Its a little off the beaten path set back off the main road though its us worth searching out. Quiet in the afternoon though in the evening you will be in line for a while but it is still woirth the wait.

This Texas style bar b que is literally the best in Vancouver. I'd venture to say best in the greater pdx area. The owners are from Texas & Louisiana & boy does it show in the cooking. The pulled pork is full of flavor. The mac n cheese is delicious. The fried okra was cooked perfectly. I can't wait to... More

After a day of photo hunting my husband and I ate dinner here it was worth the drive. Goldies uses a combo of hickory and mesquite wood for their smoke. The smoke worker gave us a sample of the pork spare ribs and we ordered the 12oz chili and the jalapeno poppers and the 3 meat combo with pulled pork,... More

This place is the best for BBQ pulled pork with their spicy BBQ sauce. Their sweet potatoe fries are to die for - I haven't had any better ones and I travel across the country!! The peach cobbler is always a wonderful finish to a terrific meal! The restaurant is always neat and tidy, and the people (who are also... More
