Porkopolis, the meats evolve,
All the platters would come with sides
I do Yelp, I do Yelp
Porkopolis is barbeque
Everybody got their eye on you
I do Yelp, it’s Scottsdale
Porkopolis, the barbeque
Sweet and Hot sauce on the table side
I do Yelp, I’m all here!
I was somewhat excited to finally come to Porkopolis simply because I was a fan of KUPD radio station!
I attended Porkopolis with my family for an early Friday evening dining. The place was pretty slow. We started off with some beer and I was pretty intrigued by the selection of moonshine, but rather shy away from it and shot for a beer instead. For my food I went for the 2 meats and 2 sides selection. I picked the Brisket and the Pulled Pork with a side of Jalapeno Mac and Cheese and the Baked Beans. This was definitely a big boys meal. The size of the platter was almost the size of a large pizza!
As for the food? The brisket was cooked to perfection, but I wished it had more of a crust to add that extra texture. Pulled Pork was a tad bit dry so I added some much needed BBQ sauce. My favorite was the Sweet & Hot house BBQ. The heat wasn’t overly bearing, but just enough sting for that added flavor. My star of the night was the Jalapeno Mac and Cheese; cheesy and warm with every bite while the jalapeno pepper was just enough for a minor aromatic scent. The baked beans were also my favorite since it had small chunks of pork and also was more of chili then just plain baked beans.
In the end, the pork didn’t win me over, but the BBQ sauce did and so did the sides. Service was fair and the moonshine might get me to come back. – Enjoy!
