Felton & Mary's
Felton and Mary Campbell were a remarkable couple with a gift for hospitality. In their home and in their celebrated barbecue restaurant, they loved to cook and serve meals for a crowd.
Felton and Mary's barbecue joint wasn't just any restaurant. It was a laboratory for Felton’s culinary creativity. A showcase for Mary’s ability to create community wherever she went. A place where the open handed hosts turned strangers into friends, friends into family, and someone down on their luck always had a place to stay and a job washing dishes until they got on their feet. A place where their customers called them ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad,’ and where they made and served the best brisket, pork ribs, collard greens and peach cobbler found anywhere.
Felton and Mary Campbell were adventurous free spirits, loving grandparents, yard-sale aficionados, generous hosts. The trail they blazed for their children and grandchildren to follow took them down scenic byways and meandering side roads, ending in Portland at the city’s most beloved barbecue restaurant. Now the generous spirit that infused every dish they made can be yours to share.
