Curbside Grill is a food cart located on the corner of SE 13th and Lexington in the Sellwood district of Portland, Oregon.
As an added bonus, I mentioned to the owners of the cart that I am a person that loves spicy food, and they immediately asked if I would like a sample of their "Hella Hot" wing sauce, which was still in the experimental stages at the time of my visit. The "Hella Hot" sauce is basically Curbside's hot sauce with ground Ghost chili peppers added to the mix. Of course, I couldn't pass that up!

When I tried the blue cheese crumbles and dressing were not overpowering with the chicken and veggies. Classic combination with the wing sauce, no doubt about it.
Now on to the "Hella Hot" sauce. I personally loved it. The smokiness of the ground-up Ghost peppers packed a real nice punch. After a few bites, my tongue was tingling pretty good and the "eye sweats" were noticeable on my face. Trust me, I was enjoying it!
I guess if I had any real criticisms here, it would probably be to have more chicken. It was a very good portion to begin with, though, so it's a relatively minor criticism at that. I would also like to see that Hella Hot sauce on the menu in the future! Put it up there with about 2-3 more unique wing sauce choices, and I'd be one extremely happy panda.
But heck, I'm already a huge fan of Curbside Grill and their awesome staff! If you're more of a sandwich person, they have chicken and vegetarian options there. The wings are apparently a huge hit, if you like that, so get off your behind and check out Curbside Grill ASAP! 8.5/10
