Article written by guest writer Ramon Raya – a Banning High School intern with International Trade Education Programs (ITEP).

If you’re looking to have some good Southern style BBQ and don’t mind getting your face a little dirty, then swing on by Porky’s BBQ located at 362 W. 6th Street in Historic Downtown San Pedro. The BBQ restaurant brings a little Kansas City culture with its artifact-filled decor to its astounding food.

It includes picnic tables, booths near the windows and a patio so you can enjoy some nice ribs under that Californian sun. It truly is the best BBQ in town!

Porky’s is open 7 days a week and includes a delivery service to convenience those who want delivery but are tired of that same old Pizza.

Not only is the food top quality, but all meats are always slow cooked over hickory wood. That fall-off-the-bone tenderness and smoky flavor will have you asking for seconds every time. Check out some of Porky’s signature southern dishes below.
