I was so looking forward to eating here after reading all the reviews. Sorry but TA let me down. The food was so-so, maybe a 2.5 rating at best. I guess the best way to describe our experience is to say we will not be...More

This was a total surprise and what a treat. Funky place with the best ribs and brisket I have ever had. Both were juicy, tasty and succulent. The best flavor. The side dishes are killer as well. If I lived closer, I would be there...More

My taste buds started watering when I saw the smokers going right outside. Gritty atmosphere. Great smoked meat. Excellent collards and cornbread. Reasonable prices.

We live in Hawaii and can't get the southern style BBQ with that great smoked flavor. The People's Pig filled the bill! We both loved what we ate. I had the BBQ beef sandwich and my husband had the ribs. Both to die for!

My son and I love this place. Everything here is good. Sides: macaroni and potato salad are amazing. Corn bread is so good it's dessert. Lamb, pork, chicken, etc. It's all amazing. One plate is enough food for two. Your clothes may smell like BBQ...More

Oh man was I bummed out with this experience. The quality of the ingredients was good - I'll give them that. We just did not enjoy the flavors at all. Everything was very salty and the cornbread was cold. Portland has some quality BBQ spots,...More
