Hey, y’all! Tomorrow, May 16th, is #NationalBBQDay — if that ain’t a reason to celebrate, I’ve never heard of one!
While there is a plethora of BBQ in the city, I urge you to visit my friends at Porkland BBQ. Located in the Portland Neighborhood in the West End, Porkland is a destination in and of itself. The restaurant is very large and is the perfect place to meet friends, eat with family, and enjoy community.
Housed on 26th and St. Cecilia, Porkland started as a Friday Fish Fry. The crowds proved that they were on to something, for each fish fry proved to be a bigger success than the last! The original fish now resides on the daily menu at Porkland and I’m definitely ordering it on my next visit — from what I’ve heard, it’s Write Your MeeMaw Good!
At Porkland, you’ll find all of your favorites — pulled pork, pulled chicken, round steak, rib tips, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, and more. The portions are hearty and the price point is low; I know you’ll be pleased!
Other highlights of the menu include the “Churched Up Tater Tots”, which features deep-fried tater tots smothered in nacho cheese, pulled pork or chicken, and sautéed onions; oh, and they have a Louisville classic – rolled oysters!
Rolled oysters are one of my absolute favorite foods – and to be honest, they are hard to find! Porkland’s take on the dish garnered two thumbs up from me!
So, you want delicious food — that in and of itself should be enough to make you want to visit my friends at Porkland BBQ. That said, there’s more — it’s a restaurant with a mission!
All proceeds go back into the Portland Community, as the restaurant is a part of local nonprofit Love City Inc. I got to sit down and have lunch with one of the owners during my visit and the passion and hard work that goes into Portland was palpable. It was inspiring!
They claim to be a restaurant for the community by the community – and y’all, I can assure you that they stand up to their words.
