Look, barbecue isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Portland, but if it’s possible to get burnt out on lobster, Salvage BBQ is where you should go for a break. They serve all of the barbecue greatest hits and a variety of sides, like mac and cheese and hush puppies, along with great homemade pies. Besides the food, Salvage is also a great place to go just to have a few drinks and catch some live music, which happens every Friday and Saturday, or to play trivia on Wednesdays.
