Matt’s BBQ



$$$$Perfect For:Quick EatsLunchCasual Weeknight Dinner

Even though some people like to compare us to Austin, Portland can’t really compete with cities in Texas when it comes to BBQ. That said, the smoked brisket at Matt’s BBQ could get a cautious nod of approval from any Lone Star state transplant (and that’s saying a lot). Lines can be long and the cart does sell out, so if you have your heart set on a pile of burnt ends or spare ribs, order ahead online. The best part about this truck’s location in the Prost Marketplace pod is that you can stage a mini-food crawl that includes breakfast sandwiches from Fried Egg I’m In Love and a pho’rench dip at White Elephant Asian Fusion without leaving the block.
