About The Local Grind

The Local Grind is bringin' a little taste of the islands to Portland, OR. The cart has become a local staple for their primo Island style BBQ, so if you haven't gotten on board yet, now's the time. Their catering is going buffet style, so choose from any of their different types of chicken (like teriyaki and garlic honey), kalua pork, beef, and tofu alongside their homemade macaroni salad (a dish so popular that TLG fans have dubbed it "crackaroni"). Really, it's all good at The Local Grind, so why wait? Find 'em in Portland, or have 'em out to cater your next event. They won't disappoint. MUST TRY Garlic Honey Chicken — Chicken marinated overnight in a blend of fresh garlic, honey, and sesame
