Named after the city of Cincinnati"s nickname Porkopolis http://porkopolisbbqaz.com/ became a reality in Chandler after a Cincinnati transplant relocated to the Phoenix area. Situated on the southeast corner of where Arizona Ave. meets the Loop 202. Porkopolis offers 2 burgers, both $10, on their menu along with BBQ favorites. On my lunch visit I figured the BBQ Burger would satisfy my love for both burgers and BBQ.
Using beef from the Midwest that is cooked to order and topping it with bacon, melted pepper jack cheese and a sweet & spicy BBQ sauce along with lettuce, tomato, pickle chips and onion as a garnish. All served between a Kaiser roll where the burger slightly extends beyond the border. With a nice blend of flavors this was a good and filling burger but could've been better had it not been cooked to medium temperature leaving virtually no juices. One thing I noticed and appreciated was the there was a nice balance of flavors where often the BBQ sauce can become the dominant flavor. All sandwiches come with a choice of fries, salad or homemade Jalapeno cole slaw and I found that the cole slaw lack the kick you would expect from Jalapenos and could've used some seasoning. At the end of the meal you realize this is a good burger for the money, but could be a better burger with paying attention to a couple of small details.
