Portland >Delicious Texas Pit Bbq
Texas pit BBQ --- FAIL.
We were so excited to find there was a pit BBQ place near by. After searching for it for 40 minutes ( a wild goose chase as they have moved a few times and the address listed above is no longer valid), we arrived at a trailer. Okay. Not to be too judgy, but really?
The smoke house aroma was enticing...
we ordered a chopped beef sandwich, two racks of baby backs, collard greens, texas beans, and macaroni salad, all for take away.
The ribs looked steamed...no rub, no flavor. The greens were bland. The chopped beef was not a true texas pit bbq chopped beef sandwich, and the bbq sauce tasted like kc masterpiece.
The whole experience was a serious let down.
I ended up reseasoning the ribs and popping them under the broiler. meh.
All in all I'd suggest giving this pit bbq a miss. Sorry, folks.
What Portland's been missing for so long!. Charles, the owner, is the nicest guy you will ever meet. My favorite dish is the pulled pork with Texas beans and for dessert, pecan pie. Charles does Texas BBQ right and is hands-down the best barbecue in town. I've tried many other establishments that charge 2x as much and they're lacking. Meat is moist with a smoky flavor and a great price. AMAZING!
Smoky, moist, and delicious.. Solid BBQ, and trust me, I've had my fair share of good and bad BBQ. They have $1 sandwiches with a pork/brisket/sauce combination on a hamburger bun, and is better than anything you can find for that value. Their pulled pork is possibly the best I've had. The pork ribs were great. The brisket was decent. The texas style sandwiches carry a hefty price of $10 (for just the sandwich) but they are large and in charge and could feed 2 people. They also have $7 sandwiches if you want something cheaper. The sauce always depends on personal taste, it's more sweet than spicy (which I like) but I love it. The sides could be better, however. The slaw, macaroni, and potato solids are all good, but the beans had a little too much chili flavor, but I still finished them and the corn bread should be served warm. The guy Charles that r uns the place is a real nice guy, I plan on taking advantage of the little patio area this summer.
I didnt want to use utensils!. Delicious Texas Pit BBQ, catered a family meal event for a group of NG soldier and we were on a tight budget. They worked with us and the food was amazing. I never had brisket before but now I am sold. I would recommend them over and over again. THANK YOU!
Good BarBQ. The sausage links were very good and the best part of the meal. Their brisket is more like roast beef, so I suspect it spends more time in the oven than the smoker, but I didn't ask. The pecan pie is tolerable, but not as good as what they serve up at Buster's.
One of the B E S T BBQ Pork in Town!!!.
They recently did the BBQ at a company picnic I was at and I tell you what.....This Pork shoulder was outstanding! Timely prep, great service and what a nice layout for food.
Recommend more try this company out!
Charles Moss "the chef" has it the right idea
I've been to Delicious BBQ twice, and will come again. It's delicious, just like the name says. All the businesses nearby must go crazy smelling that wonderful smoky meat cooking every morning. The pulled pork is especially good, as good as or better than I've ever had. Charles must have an awesome top-secret recipe. On the day I had it, the brisket was dry--I'll give it another try. The sausage and spare ribs were quite yummy. Normally, BBQ sausage is tough, but there it was tender, not overcooked, and not overwhelmingly fatty. Delicious is supposed to be "southern style", so the sauce is on the sweet side. If you're only going to have one sauce, this is a good one because it works with the meats. By the way, about the quantity of sauce--if you need a little more, the staff will gladly comply.
My favorite sides (so far) are the potato salad and macaroni salad. I didn't really care for the cole slaw. Can't wait to try the others.
The service was good--quick, pleasant, and professional. My order both times was exactly what it was supposed to be.
It's mostly for takeout, but there is a small outdoor seating area during good weather.

Im a sw portlander, who was happy as all get out to see a brother bring his barbeq to the sw. I greedly bought a combo (two meats) for myself.
First of all, they did not include the piece of bread/muffin that i was suppose to have. The brisket that I got was freakin fatty. I couldnt eat this. There was more fat/grismism/ than meat. I couldnt chew the substance. I definitely pick over the meat. Not much there today. The chicken thighleg was dry, like it was from yesterday batch and they just reheated it. The sauce was OK. You definitely wanted more sauce to chomp thur the brisket that was tough and fatty.
It was the first time I stop by. Ive been debating everyday ever sense, as I drive by two times a day five days aweek about going there again. And as a black man , I love barbeq. I dont know about this shop.
One suggesion: Have your female counter people "smile" and say "hello" or something to new customers. My first impression before I even ordered the food was, these women dont want to here or I was brothering them. And it showed. Its probably why my first food experience at this joint was less than good. And why I havent been back since as I drive by everyday five days a week.
Outstanding BBQ. We had them cater the meats for our office BBQ. The price was more than reasonable and the meats were so moist and flavorful. I was worried the brisket would be dry but it was fantastic. along with pulled pork and smoked chicken. Everyone Loved the meats. We will definately go there again for parties and meals. I am very picky about BBQ Sauce but I loved it too! Great Service and Great Food!
Texas BBQ'd Fat. Like many others who live in SW Portland, I was happy to see Texas BBQ set up a more permanent home. Today was the first time that I had the opportunity to stop in. I ordered a regular size beef brisket sandwich. What I got looked good, but for $10.00, I think it should have come with a side. Inside the Styrofoam box sat a Costco roll (the kind they serve their hot dogs on. Nothing wrong with the roll. I mention it so readers can judge the size) well piled with thick chunks of delicately burned brisket covered in just enough sauce. It smelled great. Then I bit in. The first bite was 90% fat and so were many of the remaining bites. I couldn't swallow that bite and didn't want to. I removed it from my mouth to salvage what little real meat remained. When I was done, I looked at the disgusting pile of suet and realized that about 1/3rd of the brisket that was on my sandwich was inedible. The few pieces that came from the bottom, single cut were tasty, smoky and similar in spirit to Texas BBQ that I've had in Texas. Texas BBQ, please teach your help how to trim the fat.
I want to thank this person for the review as this helps me to serve each one of my customers.As for the bread we use I believe it is the best for this size sandwich,but if you can give me a better vendor for my bread I will look into it.The bread is not from Coscto it is a fresh Hoggie bun.As for the fat on your brisket I will surely take care of this today,and I don't think you want to hear me when I discuss this with my employees.For your troubles,please come by and I will give you your money back and also a full Brisket to take home along with our fresh buns.As for our sides with the sandwich .The price of meat has gone up so has everything else except my prices on my food.I believe I give a very large amount of meat with my sandwiches and cannot afford to give the sides away.$2.00 is not to much to pay for a side dish I believe.Again thanks for the review and I hope to see you soon.
