Price Scale

Scuttled by a fire at its original Northeast Portland digs in 2017, Big’s rose again in late summer, like a phoenix slathered in Alabama White Gold barbecue sauce. The Big Family Meal brings everyone to the table at its roomier, raw-beamed new digs in downtown Beaverton. Share a char-skinned bird, singing with spice and smeared with that addictive mayo-vinegar-oregano-tanged sauce. Plus, a platter heaped with White Gold–dressed salad and a pair of generous sides—fluffy jojos to fried broccoli with pimento cheese, and maple-buttery corn cakes.
