Walking into Porky G’s your shnauz is assaulted by the sensuous odors of fresh, southern-style cooking. While you wait for your meal, you can sit at the bar-style window table or at a spot by the heater and watch the skilled staff tend porky’s trailer-mounted smoker pit.
Located at the corner of Lacross and busy Northwest Boulevard, Porky G’s is a mid-priced lunch spot serving southern barbeque cuisine. Choose any number of combinations from the massive, yellow menu board or just order a meat platter to taste a little of everything. For dessert, try cobblers and pies made daily.
Porky’s meats are slowly smoked in a closed-smoker pit using seasoned hardwoods at low temperatures to produce the best flavor and tenderness. Beef briskest and pork shoulders can take as long as 14 hours and ribs can take five to cook to perfection.
Most entrées come with one or two sides and, as long as you’re in the restaurant, your drink is bottomless. Porky’s will have beer on tap soon.
In a hurry? Porky’s has a drive through so you can get your baby back ribs on the run or pick up a meal for your crew. Porky G’s is also in the Spokane Valley at 15605 E. Sprague Ave.
Open Monday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call the restaurant at (208) 665-0044.
