The team behind Laurelhurst Market brings you this BBQ joint in Sellwood, offering an array of draft cocktails. Featuring the usual assortment of smoked meats and typical Southern sides, you’ll find some of their more creative dishes on the sandwich side of things. Their best bite very well may be the buttermilk-soaked fried chicken.
