Where to begin? They have me at house-smoked vegan meats. I'm probably the odd vegan out here but I often just get a sides plate cause I love the veggies. But of course I love the mac & cheese and I love that it's homemade sauce. I might even say it's the best mac & cheese in Portland.

I often opt for the Side Plate, too. It is a ridiculously large amount of ridiculously good food for a ridiculously reasonable price.

Another fan of the side plate! Delicious. The macnocheese is so good, and all of it. They also make really good lemonade.

My first Arnold Palmer came from that amazing cart!

I love all the foods, minus the baked beans. I especially adore the bbq soy curls. YUM.

sad: my STFU puppies were undercooked and raw in the middle. I don't think this is the norm at all, especially if yours were delicious, and I think that their bar is sufficiently high that mine were just an aberration.

I heard they stopped the STFU puppies. Once, I gave my leftovers to Karla and she forgot about them. That's my input.

I don't go often enough, because it's just too much heavy food for a work day lunch. If there's ever a PPK weekday lunch, let me know, folks!

I freaking love Homegrown Smoker. I used to go at least once a week, but they changed their hours so I can't go anymore and it broke my damn heart. I should check to see if they are open late again.

I love the smoked soycurl sandwich and the chili dog and the macnocheeto if I'm feeling gluttonous.

Find out the hours? I am hoping to make a trip there between work and class in the near future!

Also, do smoked tomatoes feature prominently? Those are one of my favorite things about Dove Vivi and until I learn how to use the smoker I inherited, it would be wonderful to find another source.

Yeah, he's said that they'd start being open until 5 around mid-October but I don't think it's happened yet.
