Smoked everything; trout, salmon, pig, chicken, beef, and sausage. Yummy southern sides especially the cole slaw. But they are closed; going to reopen in the spring on NE. Mississippi hopefully.

I'm writing this days after Clay's last day on Division Street. Walking distance for my family. I'm going to miss this place! Been a regular for a long time. Almost always ordered the Catfish Platter. Was sad when the Brussel Sprouts went off the menu. We also loved the wings. My family likes the Pesto Buffalo sauce best.

Podners in N. Po so overrated and expensive, but this place doesn't get much play but it should, because it's delicious and great service and great prices. Usually parking is no problem. Brisket sanwhich is a wonderful mess. Great value, my Portland BBQ fav.

I have not had BBQ this good since being in the south! Found this place on accident. Other places claim to have great BBQ but this place is amazing, everything was great! And the service was great too! Very nice people! I plan to go back soon!

Happy Hour is fantastic at this place! The bbq pork sliders were tender, lean beef with delicious bbq sauce and a potatoe bun solid enough to not be soggy, but soft enough to pair well with the pork. Come hungry because happy hour or not, they give a lot of food! It was pretty busy during HH and the service... More

Family ate here to celebrate a birthday and everyone ordered something different. I've been here before and always ordered the brisket, which is fantastic. My husband ordered the ribs and I ordered chili this time. The chili was very good, but those ribs were outstanding. I also got the grilled Brussels sprouts and really enjoyed those, and the poppy seed... More

Went here with my dad and a best friend hoping to find a new BBQ joint semi-close to my apartment. The area Clay's is in totally rocks and you will find so much food that is much higher quality and more affordable prices anywhere except here. The chicken was decent but they don't really offer any variety of sides, which... More
