Chicken Wings, Chicken Wings…  

“Seriously love this place!  No joke, they are the best I’ve had.  Fried chicken wings were delicious as well and HUGE!  Definitely a place to go when you are looking for some southern comfort!”

It’s Like Home  

“The waitstaff were incredibly friendly, and had exactly the sort of charm that we’d expect from a place such as this. Nothing high-falutin’ about this place at all, and with tremendously delicious food to boot – ”

Hush Puppies  

You can’t truly begin to experience Portland’s Southern food until you’ve tried Po’Shines’ hush puppies. Deep-fried and golden as the sun but not too greasy, the hush puppies are so incredible it’s tempting just to order a few sides and call it a day.”

- Willamette Week
