ROADRUNNER BAR-B-Q - PORTLAND, OR
Turned out excellent. The old guy who runs this deal, Jim, said to us "it's good BBQ, trust me. I'm from Texas, I know what it's supposed to taste like" and he did.
We went with a chopped brisket sandwich and a chopped brisket plate. Had mac & cheese and BBQ beans as sides.
The sandwich had lean slices of brisket, but not lean like dry. Lean but flavorfully smoked. The plate's chooped brisket had some gristle, but it was welcomed gristle!
The sides didn't keep all that warm by the time we had it on the plane, so I can't really tell you the best opinion but it was pretty good. Probably top notch when hot.
Thinking back, wish I ordered a 1/4 chicken too.
