I have NEVER got worst service from any other place than I did here. If you hate your job so much find a new one. I bought a groupon for Reo's and went to use it and they have us so much hassle for using it. Kept saying how they are losing

What does smoke pumping from Reo's Ribs do to the air quality, the health of the neighbors and the housing prices in the neighborhood?

Buy a house in John's Landing and discover for yourself...

The food is fatty and full of grissel. Difficult to chew at times. The flavor is Eh! at best. The staff seems to think that you should be lucky they even acknowledge you. We're happy that they left Aloha but not so happy that they left behind about 10 rabbits (in cages no less) and 15+ cats. I thought animal abandonment was illegal. Guess not for Snoop Doggs uncle huh.
Don't know how they're still in business. Must be a big demand for food that compares to road kill.

Decided to drop into Reo's for a quick pulled pork sandwich combo, had to wait 45 minutes. Plain cold hamburger bun with a pile of way over-smoked meat (bitter) with some honey/vinegar sauce drizzled on top. Cole slaw consisted of just shredded cabbage. Corn bread was ok. The guy had two huge smokers really smoking out in the parking lot. I feel sorry for the neighboring merchants, they are literally getting smoked out of their businesses.

Pros: Nothing I could find

Cons: Long wait, rude service, over-smoked so so meat.

My roomate had the bright idea of trying REO's Ribs.What an experience that was.First we stood in line for fifteen minutes to place our order of very expensive food.Second we waited forty five minutes to get our order.We finally asked one of the rude servers where our food was.Alas it finally came,the three dollar beans were cold,and they might as well cooked an old boot for what they called RIBS.NO meat and tough as nails.I will never revisit this place and DO NOT RECOMMEND REO'S TO ANYONE...........................

** UPDATE: 8.31.10. Was at Quiznos today and half a dozen people in there were commenting on what a filthy hole REO's RIBS is; worse and worse everyday. REO get a clue - the cars are thinning out. 25% the customers you had just two months ago. Find a hobby and close that place down. ***

This place really draws you in with that outdoor barbeque grill, but it all goes down from there.

The place is filthy. Congratulations, Mexican restaurant on about the SE 4000 block of Grand Ave, you are now the second dirtiest restaurant!

I mean the windows are coated with grease and film and so are the tables. We aren't talking about 24hr grease here, it is like it has never been cleaned since the Mexican restaurant folks left (who actually were 10x better) .

I had to battle a dozen flies for my meal. Don't sit next to a window! The people just outside were battling yellowjackets so I guess it could be worst.

OK, the service. The line was long, to the door or beyond. The cashier/order taker was absolutely worthless. We handed out menus in line ourselves!

This twit was actually chatting away with a coworker while people were waiting in line a half hour.

There is no placard/sign with the menu, only 8"x11" paper menus. They are too inept to hand them down the line so people can pre-decide. To top it off, we finally get to the front, order away, and the airhead implies I was trying to steal the unconcealed cookie in my hand. lol.

I nicely said, no, the cookie jar is right here, please charge me for it. Then she added, "they are not free you know." A dollar cookie. Yes, I desperately wanted to steal the cookie while tipping $5 in the tip jar before she brought it up.

Then she literally tosses the 'number' pedestal table thingy at us and we find a table.

Then, the giant brut that cooks the meat comes in and bitches out the people in line for not having the common sense to just go get a table on their own and wait for a waitress! LOL. Pure comedy.

OK, the food. We order the $20 samplers and were expecting Fred Flintstone portions. More like a bird portion. Luckily we paid $3 each for a little stub of corn. It was like dried cardboard and THEY DON'T SERVE BEER to wash it down. Water or pop my friends, water or pop.

Do yourself a favor and go up one more block, hang a right and go to the Bamboo Grill/Hawaiian place. Food is great, people treat you like they appreciate you.

Or Quiznos even! At least those people won't have to worry about being smoked out for much longer, this place couldn't possibly be in business in six months.

You will have your sub sandwich ordered, paid for, eating, and digested before you even see your food at RIOs.

Pros: The Flies backed off just long enough for me to sit down

Cons: Service, food, smell, filthy tables, windows, frowns, flies

I visited Portland from South Carolina and saw an article in the local paper about REO's. We went to the new location down on the river and I would never return. First things first, they were out of ribs! Are you kidding me? Next, a side was $3. A side, for example, was half an ear of corn. That is absurd. Finally, the waitresses and REo himself are lost. He is totally in over his head. He is incapable of managing a busy restaurant. Seriously, Tony Roma's has better ribs and you won't leave feeling like you were robbed by Snoop Dogg.

Pros: Decent BBQ

Cons: Overpriced and In over his head

.

I tried this new location after driving by and smelling the delicious smoke from their bbq smoker. I ordered the beef ribs and paid $20 for about seven ribs. They smelled and looked good but the meat was tough and the edges were leathery to chew. When I placed my order the employees made no effort to be friendly or communicative. They kind of had an attitude like they didn't care and I was wondering if I had annoyed them by simply visiting their restaurant. I thought maybe they were working out the kinks of starting up in a new location and decided to give them a second chance. The second time it seemed a little dirtier on the inside and their customer appreciation skills had sunk to lower levels. Being fair in wanting to try it twice I asked for $10 worth of ribs this time. They said that would be one pound of ribs and my order had just two ribs in the take home box. The quality was the same, they smelled great but they weren??t excellent especially for the price they charged. I don??t plan to return, they fooled me once, then twice. I hope they have success but it won??t be from my future business.

Pros: the smoke as you drive by

Cons: expensive ribs, could care less attitude

.

Horrible food. Server cleared a whole table of uneaten food and asked if everything was ok. Everyone in our group politely complained about the food quality, and the server couldn't have cared less. No manager or owner came over to find out where they went wrong. Wouldn't go back.

Pros: None

Where do I start? The whole dining experience was horrible. I will never frequent this establishment again. The glass I was given had dried bbq sauce on it, they couldnt provide me a copy of my credit card reciept,the order was wrong, the portions were small and the beef ribs were practically jerky. I' ve had good and great bbq and this establishment serves neither.

My boyfriend and I went to the NEW store in Portland, OR on SW Macadam (right next to Quizno's). We were told that all the tables are full and we can sit outside in the cold. As we were placing our order, the waitress would be interrupted by coworkers asking her questions because no one there knew what they were doing. We were told it would be a 45 minute wait on the food, it was okay because it was packed. We drove the 3 minutes back to our house and waited. We came back 45 minutes later, asked if our food was done, and they didn't even know. They were all scrambling around to figure out if they had our order, of course they didn't. They didn't even start cooking our meal until after we arrived back at the restaurant after waiting 45 minutes.. At this point, there were about 15 people in the restaurant. They sat us down with waters and said it would be 5 minutes. As we sat down, one of the employees started locking the doors as everyone is still eating. We watched as some one trying to leave walked straight into the door because it was locked (MAJOR FIRE HAZARD). The waitress that was working the table next to us was extremely dumb. She kept coming back and forth asking what food they were waiting on instead of knowing what food it was. So by this time it has been 1 hour and 45 minues and our food was STILL NOT READY!!!! We constantly asked if our food was ready and they kept saying "almost, almost" instead of just saying "Hey, its taking longer than expected, could we offer you a complimentary drink or appetizer?" but no, they don't do anything. I had to ask for a free drink, and they girl behind the counter was being rude and disrespectful as she was providing me with my "free" drink. Finally, 2 HRS LATER, they brought our food out and didn't compensate us for anything. So, what did we learn from this? NEVER GO TO REO'S RIBS EVER!!! NEVER!!!!!

This place has absolutely amazing food. Now only are their ribs fantastic, but the variety of sauces are great too. Beyond that their baked beans are to DIE for. The price is reasonable, but even if you call ahead expect to wait around for a bit while they get your order ready.

I stopped in for lunch and there was one person in the place. I ordered beef brisket and a pork shoulder, a hour and fifteen minutes later the food came out. The food was good, but not worth the wait. I could have driven home, made a home made bbq sauce, slaughtered the cow and cooked it faster than Reo's Ribs. All I wanted was some BBQ for lunch and I could have went to a stand on the side of the road and received like kind quality food and saved an hour of wait time. They really need to get their s#!t together, who makes their customers wait an hour and fifteen minutes for BBQ? I wouldn't go back for a free meal, it wouldn't be worth my time.

We had baby backs, beef ribs, spicy chicken wings, brisket and sides of green beans, greens, hush puppies, cornbread and fried okra. We had wanted some fried catfish too, but found out (later) that they were out. When the food came, everything was great! They did mix up and brought us potato salad instead of fried okra, but that was corrected and we had fried okra before we were done with the other items. Definitely not a 'fancy night out'. This is true to classic Southern soul food. I am a native of Arkansas and Missouri, and have many kin in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

No, it wasn't the 'best BBQ I have ever eaten', but it was reasonably priced, good food and we finished everything.

Average BBQ, nothing too special, i got the super meat plate, with ribs, brisket, and sausage. My two sides were coleslaw and potato salad. I think the attraction is that it is Snoop Dogg's uncle. I guess it is kinda cool when you walk in to see pictures of someone famous all over the place, but they need to work on cleanliness, BIG TIME. I understand it isn't gourmet, but the fundamentals of all good food comes with a clean kitchen, and proper sanitation. Like I said, fairly average BBQ, coming from Texas, I feel i know a little bit about BBQ. Something to keep in mind though, they only scored 70 on their inspection, pretty much a fail in my book.

Pros: If you REALLY want BBQ it is ok

Cons: very very dirty

I hate reo's ribs, because I once drove out there and it was like in a twilight zone...like I traveled back in time of poor texas neighbor hood back in 70's....but to all you critics, ask your self this...how many bbq joint that you know of, will serve you a fresh bbq off their grill? no one unless it's done yourself! it's just not physically possible unless the joint is hopping to turn their food around fast, and Portland or Beaverton crowd isn't your bbq eating clients. So they will either get microwaved food or from oven re-heated stuff, and thereby hangs a tail of all these critics that supposedly know the bbq business! I sincerely don't know of any quality bbq place in Northwest unless except somewhat acceptable place like Podnah's or Campbell's , and even at that food is not going to be perfectly consistent sometimes because it's cooked in a wood smoker(I've seen their smoker)...If a bbq food is too perfect and consistent everytime, it's coming from the electric or gas oven, or one of those stainless steel pellet burning digital timer and thermostat like the way they do at the Russell street bbq! and that's not a real bbq.. To me, I don't want no gas, electric, pellets or briquets of charcoal, I want a real WOOD burning bbq even if it's in a drum can...and even if it's scorched sometimes, you have to give credit to all those folks working hard to serve you a bbq best they can. That is why I gave reo's three stars, I sympathize their effort. and these so-called bbq critics are just looking for something to nag at....in this bad economy times.

Aside from REO himself being Snoop Dog's cousin, these ribs pack some serious flavor. Being from the south, ther hush puppies and collard greens are also a real treat. Great prices too.

Been getting ribs and BBQ sandwiches from Reo's for years. Love all the BBQ I've tried. There sides are also really good - tangy coleslaw & good cornbread. I highly recommend them.

the title says it all... the brisket sandwich is a steal (the bread doesnt sandwich the meat so much as serve as a platform for it), and the cornbread is awesome. don't worry yourself about the rest too much, and don't try to eat there every day. yum.

This is another small place in the area, with great soul food. They have the best ribs and the very best coleslaw, love the sauce they use. The prices are good for the amount of food served.

Food was terrible, greasy and fatty. Obviously reheated and poor quality and expensive. We barely ate it and became physically ill from it. The place is unsanitary and dirty. Too many other great places in Portland to waste your money here.

Since moving here four months ago, I'd been looking forward to getting a chance to try Reo's. The place looked like a dive and everyone knows about it, which usually means a great, inexpensive meal. However, that wasn't the case. We got two of the sampler platters, which is recommended for your first time. They didn't have any yams, so I got the baked beans instead. The beans were ok, but very strange tasting and unlike any I've had before. The macaroni and cheese was good for the first few bites, but then the strange sour quality began to get old, and I was wishing for some good ol' shells & cheese instead. As for the rest, the ribs had almost no substance besides some burnt tasting sauce and a tiny amount of chewy meat. The chicken was too gross to eat; it looked like a huge hunk of fat and bone, and not much else. I must say that the brisket was amazingly good, but I also wonder if it just seemed good in comparison to everything else. I'm not at all a picky eater; I grew up on a ranch in which we ate pretty much anything, but I wouldn't eat at Reo's again.

Since moving here four months ago, I'd been looking forward to getting a chance to try Reo's. The place looked like a dive and everyone knows about it, which usually means a great, inexpensive meal. However, that wasn't the case. We got two of the sampler platters, which is recommended for your first time. They didn't have any yams, so I got the baked beans instead. The beans were ok, but very strange tasting and unlike any I've had before. The macaroni and cheese was good for the first few bites, but then the strange sour quality began to get old, and I was wishing for some good ol' shells & cheese instead. As for the rest, the ribs had almost no substance besides some burnt tasting sauce and a tiny amount of chewy meat. The chicken was too gross to eat; it looked like a huge hunk of fat and bone, and not much else.

Pros: Brisket, kind of interesting atmosphere

Cons: Everything else

REO'S IS TOTALLY OVER PRICED ! THE SERVICE IS LAZY OR RUDE. AND THE SIDES HAVE NO FLAVOR, OR BURNED... SMELLS GOOD WHEN YOU DRIVE BY THOUGH !

I went to Reo's because the place is closer to me then Yam Yam's out on NE MLK. However what I found was the drive to Yam Yam's is worth it. I being from the deep south I wanted Greens Collard Greens, I have never had greens that tasted so bad WAY WAY WAY to much hot sauce, just because it sets your tongue on fire does not make it good. I am used to greens being flavored with ham hock and I have never in my life had greens that the juice was slimmy like when you make boiled okra and the cat fish is spicy hot as well and $16.00 a pound, just so you know you can buy catfish for $4.00 a pound in any grocery store. My point is if you want good "soul food" Yam Yams can not be beat, as for Reo's ribs and BBQ yes dry and not very much meat on them. I will never go again, I will always from now on take the drive to Yam Yam's

Take it from a Virginian : I know soul food when I see it and it doesn't get much better than this. The portions are generous and the food is tasty. Reo knows how to do sauce - the kind you just want to lick your plate to get it all. And this is the one place in the Northwest where you can get authentic fried okra. The ambiance is casual with checkered plastic table cloths and paper/plastic plates and utensils. But the food is top notch. Order at the counter and sit down or take out.

Need I say more??? The brisket is yummmmmm oooooooooh. My 12 yr. old daughter, who is the pickiest of eaters, couldn't get enough of the BBQ. She even said she wanted to hug the man who made it. That's saying A LOT. We got the variety plate and while it was all good....it was the brisket that won us over. My daughter loved the mac and cheese too. Even got an extra side to take home for her to eat later. Had our first taste of sweet potato pie....it was awesome. The restaurant itself is nothing special....It matters not when you get a plate of brisket!!

If you want real southern BBQ, you have to go to Reo's Ribs! Ignore the bad comments that other people left, they just aren't used to these types of restaurants. No, its not flashy and brand new, its not supposed to be! It's BBQ people! Its all about the food, and the food is AMAZING! The corn bread is to die for! You won't need butter or honey for this stuff! My family and I have had it several times and every time has been wonderful with consistently yummy food! Use them for your next house party, superbowl, or whatever. We did and it was perfect! You gotta eat here!

Yeah, the place is ugly. Sure, it's been on Dirty Dining. I agree, the service is slow. Potato salad is kinda soupy. And I am not a fan of Snoop Dogg. All that being said.... the Brisket is AMAZING! I love it, it is worth all the other stuff. I don't eat there often. It is expensive considering the lack of ambience. But that Brisket is just plain 'ol yummmmmmmm.

Smells like bbq? But---.
The parking lot is your first clue to not get out of your car (It looks like a seen from the movie deliverance). The grills smoke but they are filthy.
The wood strewn about is of many different speicies,at least most of it looked like some kind of hardwood?
I was not sure wich run down (building?) to enter at first, then I seen some people exit a door. So we went in (second mistake). No one helped us with ordering or seating. In fact no one even noticed we came in?
After a few awkward minutes we went to the counter where a women was talking on the phone. She continued to ignor us. I finaly spotted what looked like a menu printed on a single piece of plane white paper. After about ten minutes the counter person made enough eye contact with me for me to place our order (third mistake)!.
1hr and 15 min after ordering, our (food?) got plopped down on the table not a word spoken. I will just describe my cullinary experiance (sampler plate).
There was supossed to be 5 differant kinds of meat? Well there was only 5 pices on the plate and two of them were burnt chicken leggs. The rest were fat,greasy, stringy, chewy, crusty, gristly, mostly bone and not much flavor. The sides were small and not any better quality.
In short that was 2 hours of my life I wish I could do over? I will never go back!
When you drive by and smell the smoke, just remember that is the best part of reos ribs.

The food here was below average. The Ribs themselves had very little meat on the bone. Not to mention the meat was very hard to get off the bone and when you did it was dry. The BBQ sauce did not have a good flavor or good choices of flavors. (Applebees and Chili's is better) Sides were nothing great, I have a wife who is not picky about very many things but she did not like any of the sides, corn, beans or the cornbread. It is expensive and just not worth the stomach ache.

Pros: Pictures of his family

Cons: flavor of the food, dirty, value

When you walk in the door you see a semi-collage of pictures of Reo and his family. I think he is Snoop Dogg's uncle as I recall, but anyway. I am here to review the food, right. I love the candied yams, the best I have ever eaten the brisket is tasty and the sides are fine. I believe that because it is no frills the people below reviewed as poor. Looks aren't everything.

Like most of you, we tried it because the smell is always so good when driving by. We went right before closing on a week day and decided to try one of their samplers along with the Cobbler and Sweet potato pie for dessert. We have been looking for a good bbq place for quite some time and were hoping this would be it. Unfortunately, it wasn't. The meal was pretty sad, and they were out of ribs. At the time we chocked it up to being close to closing time. The desserts were pretty horrible. I admit I'm a bit critical of desserts cause I'm a baker but I can appreciate a lovely simple piece of pie that's homemade, in fact I enjoy it more. This was anything but. It was worse than something I would think came out of a box. Overall it wasn't enjoyable and even though we said we might give it another chance, we haven't been back.

Cons: Food and desserts were not at all worth it

After smelling the smoke driving by in my car, decided to stop by and try it. The ribs were just bones with barely any meat on them, side dishes were tasting old, and the price was way too high for what I got. Would not recommend it, unless they change.

Just what I have been searching for a friendly hole in the wall that serves great food. First decent BBQ I have had since leaving Missouri. Service is slow, next time I will call ahead. Can't wait to try the catfish and sweet potatoe pie.

Sad......maybe at one time they cared about the quality of there Food?!?! Not any more. I found kids running things for the most part. All sides served with meals were less than average. The main course of Meats were non-impressive. I thinks my 2yr old Daughters BBQ is Better. Reo's better step up?!?!? There's too much other BBQ that waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy better!!!

Like others, I have driven by many times and the smell of the smoker was enticing. Unfortunately, I finally stopped in and ordered the beef ribs. 18 bucks worth of non-recyclable bones, gristle, fat and stringy, shoe leather textured "mystery" meat smothered in a bland sauce that can be used to hang wall paper.

I am pretty sure that a forensic team could not uncover exactly what it was I was served. If it was beef, I truly feel sorry for the cow that gave its' life to wind up in this dump, charred beyond recognition and exhibited as an example of "Mississippi BBQ".

On the plus side, I didn't break my ankle in the parking lot. Oh.. one more thing.. to the BBQ snobs that gave this place better than a one star rating, how often does Reo give you free food? I guess the trade off is fair, as it just barely beats your usual dumpster diving. The question is, whose computer did you use to post your reviews?

Absolutely horrible. Gross, dirty, nasty. Went there ordered Beef Brisket, it was all fat and gristle, and it tasted like fat. I wanted fries for my side, but of course not, fries aren't a side but you have to pay extra. The sides were horrible. I wanted to ask for my money back, I wish I would have.

To top it off, I walked around the back to where my car was and about 5 cats jumped out of the trash behind this horrible nightmare.

Will never ever be back.

I have driven past Reo's several times and finally decided to try it. I got the sampler for $15, which includes pork roast, beef brisket, a beef rib, a pork rib, a piece of chicken, and 3 sides. I chose mac and cheese and 2 portions of the collard greens for the sides. The meat itself is very poor quality. Obviously, it does not require prime grade meat for BBQ, but the meat used is fat and bones. The brisket and the pork roast has absolutely no smoke penetration. The meat was simply burned in the smoker. I got about 3 tablespoons apiece of the sides I ordered. The collard greens were either canned, or cooked way too long. Obviously, no smoked pork was used to flavor the greens, just hot sauce. The mac and cheese was fine. If you are from anywhere in the country that has good BBQ, do not waste your money at this dump. The articles about this place tend to think it?s so interesting that someone would move from Mississippi and open a BBQ in Aloha, Oregon of all places. The reason for this is that if this place were anywhere in the south, it would be out of business in two weeks.

much more sauce than beef. Beef on ribs was non-existent. What was there was ok....but why pay to gnaw on nearly bare bones. -----flabergasted,,,, what a nerve to serve such a thing!
Horrible sides---dried up salad and code slaw, mushy mac & cheese on flimsy paper plates on not so clean tables. Pork and brisket was acceptable --------not sure now, my judgement still clouded by the beef ribs and sides.

WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY! Upon arrival the staff seemed preoccupied with their telephone social life then helping us. We ordered ribs and were promptly told "We're out". How can you be out of ribs at 4:30 on a Friday? Tried the brisket and pork instead. The pork had more fat than meat and was extremely greasy. The brisket tasted like it had sat around for several days over done and dry. I've hadshoe leather that was more tender than this "meat". Went up to complain and again was rebuffed by the help if you can call it that. Asked for water to wash down this huge mistake called barbeque. The water had a taste of chlorine in it. Never will venture here again what a huge mistake

We have tried them three times. It always smells so good driving past, but the food is horrible. It's like the regulars on the westside don't have a clue what good BBQ should be. Three out of three times the food was dry, burnt, or just plain inedible. The person who said it was like jerky was lucky. Ours was so crispy that you couldn't bite into it. It looked good because they drowned it in bbq sauce. The ambience was horrible, the food has never been good, and the people working there look straight out of a halfway house. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else, like Tennessee Reds, if you want BBQ.

Like many I have gone past Reo's for years and the smell of the smoke on TV Hwy made you think that there was some good BBQ. But this is not the case.

About three years ago I tried it for the 1st time. I was bad, and over priced. I did not return. Thinking that any place can have a off day I gave them a chance again not to long ago and somehow it's not even half of what it was before and that's real bad.

Small sizes not much meat on the bones and bad sides.

Save your time and your money. Go someplace else.

My meal was about 2 months ago, but I'm new to city search. My beef ribs were way over cooked. I went with my cousin who has eaten at Reo's many times, and even he won't go back now. He says he never did like any of the sides. For $8 to $9 I could forgive the occasional bad meal, but Reo's is too expensive for that. I expect what I pay for.
