Southland Whiskey Kitchen: The South meets The West

Southland Whiskey Kitchen  debuted on my block but a mere month-ish ago. I wish I could say I did research on it (I did not) but from the aura of the restaurant and the vibe of the food- I'd say it's going for Country Western BBQ meets Southern Soul Food.  And on a sunny weekend, we felt very happy to head North on our street to visit the West & the South.
Ready to eat and ready to drink.
Walking on over to welcome the new restaurant to our hood.
The sign had been painted long before it opened leaving us waiting w/ bated breath for its debut!
Inside couldn't be more of a giddy-up, good time.
What you do between ordering and getting your food: pictures.
Various homemade BBQ Sauces to try.
Take a seat, pod'na.
Food and Spirits at your command.
The Boy's order: The Smokestack
My order: Buttermilk Fried Chicken Cobb
And topped it off with a 'Bourbon & Bubbles'- yummy.
Feeling very happy and very full.
From the yummy food to the inspired Whiskey-laced cocktails (from a girl who really never drinks the stuff), Southland Whiskey Kitchen can be assured that we will be back. I suggest Portland locals give it a try - but make sure you go on an empty stomach. You'll need all the room for food you can get.

The Boy's sandwich looks delicious! And those homemade chips??? I could eat buckets of them! That's great you guys have a cool place to eat within walking distance. That is one of the few downsides of living in the "country"...We have to drive at least 10 minutes to get to any food places!

Thank you for all of your sweet words and support about my grandfather. He's the closest relative I've ever lost, and it's quite hard as you know. We'll make it, but it sure does suck.

@Mrs.Poustie- Thank you for the kind words! But I must say my skin is just normal, what you are evidently seeing is likely a combo of makeup and photo editing glow :)
