bbq or soul food in Portland
I am moving from Ga to Portland this summer...any good BBQ or soul food places around or am I going to be at a loss?
There's Podnah's Pit for BBQ along with others on both sides of the river so you're definitely not lost there.
As far as soul food, what exactly are you looking for? I'll second the Screen Door rec, and while some of the menu might be fancied up, cheese grits are still cheese grits. I still need to make time to head over to Pine State Biscuits for the Reggie Deluxe: biscuits, gravy, fried chicken, eggs and bacon. Oh yeah, that's the stuff.
I like the Delta for southern food-yummy, inexpensive, funky atmosphere, huge portions.
