Quick to get food and the food is always great! Make sure you get there early for the best selection. Everything is cooked fresh, so once it runs out it is gone for the day. Everything is great, though, so if your first choice isn't...More

If you are hungry and enjoy great BBQ, you must go to Porter’s. Their BBQ sandwiches are second to none and will satisfy the hungriest of appetites. A trip to Porter’s will get you hooked.

I was at lunch time couple times. There was not anything interesting. First time ribs were good, second time - too dry. If you like barbecue meat it is ok to stop time to time because there is not good place in Tri-Cities.

Porters is a community favorite. Great brisket and pulled pork. Sauce is the real deal. More Texas than Carolinas so don’t expect chopped pig😂😂. Get there early for the jalapeño poppers.
