We had 2 chefs salads and beer for lunch. One was pulled pork and smoked turkey, very good too much to eat. The other was burnt ends brisket, excellent again too much to eat. Kilt on draft, medium priced.

We went to porkopolis for a late lunch as it was close to our hotel and we love barbecue. The lunch menu offered immense portions, which we found out when we ordered a brisket quesadilla and an order of burnt brisket ends. The brisket ends don't come with a side dish, just a heaping basket of absolutely delicious chunks of smoked meat. The taste was amazing--rich, smoky and paleo heaven. It was the best barbecued beef we've had in a long time. The quesadilla was great also--packed with chunks of brisket and cheese. Each of the servings was more than enough for two. Service was friendly and quick. We would be regulars here if we lived in Scottsdale.

Went to Porkopolis on Sunday at 11:30 AM. Very quiet time in the restaurant, no wait at all. The food that we got was fantastic! The brisket and ribs were outstanding. The pulled pork was a little dry but it had very good flavor.
Burnt ends are an great appetizer.
Fast and friendly service.

Check it out if you're in the Chandler area.

Mi dad and I have wanted to check this place out for a while. I decided to take him there for his birthday. Wednesday night at 7pm, we walked in and the place was empty. The bartender joked and said they saved the place just for us, sit any where. I made a joking comment to the waitress and said i hope this isnt a bad sign.

I ordered the nacho appetizer and it was delicious, but it went downhill from there, fast.

Nothing exciting really stood out on the menu, we asked the waitress for her recommendation and the only thing she would talk about was the pulled pork sandwich. We asked her about a few of the other items and she didnt have a whole lot lot to say and even kinda shied away, should have seen that as a sign and left.

We decided to try a few of the sandwiches,

I had the combo meat sandwich with the jalapeno mac and cheese. The sandwich was ok after i scraped the coleslaw off. The coleslaw and weird taste to it, not sure what it was but it definitely was not appetizing. The jalapeno mac and cheese was bland, i could see the jalapenos but i couldn't taste them.

My dad had the southern fried chicken sandwich and garlic mash potatoes. We've had better sandwiches from a fast food joint and the potatoes where dry.

My daughter had the Brady burger and creamed corn. she took three bites and was done. My dad and i picked at her plate and we were not impressed. The creamed corn had jalapenos in it, again could not taste them, and it also had a really weird sweetness too it. The burger was ok at first bite but after dissecting and inspecting the burger it self had a pre-made cooked from frozen texture and it was a funky liquid smoke after taste. it was not good at all.

This place is not good and completely over priced. Your paying for Ruth's Chris but getting less then Denny's quality. There are so many better BBQ places in AZ do not waste your time or money on this one.
