Now, in case you haven't had the chance to eat at Porter's Real BBQ in Richland, you're missing out. It's DE-LICIOUS! For real! The meat choices are excellent, the sides are outstanding (can you say, gouda mac n cheese?), and the service is always with a smile. I was, like so many fans, stoked when I learned that they were opening a new location. They had a surprise soft opening yesterday, so I had to jump at the chance to see the new digs.

They're on Columbia Center Parkway across from the mall, and near Target. This location has been several restaurants before Porter's moved in, and sadly, they've all failed. But with Porter's amazing food, and awesome service, I'm thinking this local fave is just the right fit for that space. Take a gander at their new location and make sure you stop by for their grand opening on Thursday, March 8th, to get FREE BBQ as long as supplies last!
