Went in for a dinner with the girls on a sunday, about 5:30. Absolutely no wait time to get a table. Drinks came fast, dinner came even faster! Great food, and very attentive staff. I didn't even get into the huge whisky menu they have. Will have to return with hubby, and let him do that!

I was skeptical at first however it is true Texas BBQ in Portland. Great brisket and awesome sides. Nice job.

Came for Sunday brunch around 11:30 & & got a table right away. Were given menus, but they didn't include brunch so I went to ask for one & was told it was in the book on the table. Our table had no book, so I just grabbed one from another table. Brunch menu was not extensive, but everything on... More

This place smokes, cures, brines, etc...all their meats in-house. I waist start by saying I am from the South so I am picky about what I consider true southern food. Southland (in my opinion) is a NW take on Southern food, but is done really well in a lot of areas. The fresh pork rinds were delicious! They could sell... More

The decor is amazing. I ordered the ribs and they were packed with dry spice and then topped with bbq sauce. My 2 sides were rice and beans and potato au gratin. Shortly after eating my mouth was burning from spice. Not sure if it was the ribs or the sides? I can not handle the heat and don't enjoy... More

Unplanned stop, we were wet, cold, and hungry. The service was okay, just okay because our waitress seemed to keep forgetting our silverware each time she stopped at our table. It wasn't a bad experience per say, just maybe an off night for her. The food was of good sized proportions, but I am not thoroughly impressed, very forgettable experience.... More

Our son took us here for Sunday brunch. We each ordered a Bloody Mary, which came with a large amount of garnish in the drink AND a beer chaser! We're still reliving that wonderful memory. And the food was good -- we ordered the biscuits and gravy. Lots of TVs in the bar area ... would be a great place... More

My son chose this restaurant during a trip to Portland as he was interested in the extensive menu of whiskies offered by this restaurant. I ordered a chicken/sausage combination with red beans and rice, plus a biscuit, while my son ordered a burger and fries. He ordered a whiskey sour as a starter, while ordered a locally sourced IPA for... More

The atmosphere is nice, the waitress was very friendly. The food was very good. The fries are spicy and crisp, the brisket tender and the red beans and rice quite tasty.
