Portland can’t really compete with cities in Texas when it comes to BBQ, even though some people like to compare us to Austin. That said, the smoked brisket that comes on a butcher paper-topped tray with pickles, red pickled onions, and white bread at Matt’s BBQ wouldn’t upset a Lone Star state transplant. 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.
