Portland's Rose Quarter plays home to many of the city's biggest performances, conventions, and events, but for most Portlanders, it's really all about one thing: Trail Blazers basketball. The next time you're rooting for Rip City at the Moda Center — or the Winterhawks hockey team in the neighboring Veterans Memorial Coliseum, as the case may be — use this map to find some of the best restaurants and bars on location and in the area.

The Moda Center alone has 70 or something concession options, and a revamp several years back added top-quality local restaurants. The map below includes some of the best on-site restaurants, as well as plenty of nearby options for pre-gaming and post-gaming.

One of the best options for barbecue in Greater Portland, Vancouver's Daddy D's BBQ is available throughout the stadium, with one location on the 100 level and two on the 300 level. Third-generation pit master and owner Donnie Vercher hails from Louisiana but makes his family's own style of barbecue. The saucy chopped brisket is where to start.

Located on the 100 level, Tamale Boy slings the Portland-based chain’s popular tamales, with fillings like shredded beef and cochinita pibil. There are plenty of options for vegetarians, too, for those who prefer their masa pockets meat-free. For more variety, Tamale Boy also has a location blocks away next to the Labrewatory.

10 Barrel’s Moda brewpub is a satellite location for Bend’s lauded brewery. Open more than two hours before the game starts, the Rose Quarter’s 240-seat 10 Barrel is a key spot for a pre-game IPA.

4. Nineteen27 S'mores - Moda Center

1 N Center Court St
Portland, OR 97227

Several food carts operate at the Moda Center, and this one is all about melty, crunchy, and super sweet s'mores. Nineteen27 changes things up with a variety of marshmallow flavors, including chai, chamomile, and coffee.

5. Sizzle Pie - Moda Center

1 N Center Court St
Portland, OR 97227

Thanks to the folks at Sizzle Pie, the world’s most perfect (and portable) food is something that everyone can enjoy — carnivores, vegetarians and vegans included. Sizzle Pie's concession stand is a killer spot for a pre-game slice of Napalm Breath, topped with pepperoni, fresh jalapenos, onions, and loads of crushed garlic.

6. Ex Novo Brewing

Copy Link
2326 N Flint Ave
Portland, OR 97227

Ex Novo’s cool industrial brewpub makes a hoppy Pacific Northwest IPA along with seasonal brews and a menu of Detroit-style pizzas and pub classics, with things like "Bacon for the Table," fried pickles, and pineapple-jalapeno pies. It is a bit of a hike to the Moda Center, with the option of taking a bus on N Williams, but it is open everyday of the week and adds lunch to the mix on weekends.

7. OX Restaurant

Copy Link
2225 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 284-3366
Visit Website

For a special occasion meal before the game, Ox is the closest spot to find Portland-style Argentinian barbecue, from flanken-style beef short rib to smoked beef tongue with ensalada rusa. The comfortably chic restaurant is known for its clam chowder, which comes with a smoked marrow bone.

8. Bröder Nord

Copy Link
2240 N. Interstate Blvd
Portland, OR 97227
(503) 282-5555
Visit Website

When the Blazers host an afternoon game, it’s the perfect excuse to head over to Peter Bro’s cheerful Broder Nord for a little brunch. Broder is known for its Swedish dishes, like the iconic aebelskivers and a creamy, dreamy skillet of ham and baked eggs. The MAX stops nearby and takes about five minutes to reach the Moda Center.

9. Pine State Biscuits

Copy Link
125 NE Schuyler St
Portland, OR 97212
(503) 719-5357
Visit Website

For a quick-but-hearty bite before the game, this biscuit-obsessed restaurant offers dauntingly large breakfast sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, and a handful of other plates like chicken pot pie. Head directly for The Reggie — the restaurant’s incredibly Instagrammable signature fried chicken sandwich, involving bacon, cheese, and plenty of gravy.

10. Upright Brewing

Copy Link
240 N Broadway
Portland, OR 97227
(503) 735-5337
Visit Website

Upright Brewing is located just a couple blocks from the Moda Center, making it an obvious choice for farmhouse-style beer nerds. It's open in the evenings Thursday through Sunday, but for home Blazers games, it's always a pre-game option: It throws open the doors from 6 p.m. at the latest until the game begins.

11. Spirit of 77

Copy Link
500 NE M L King Blvd
Portland, OR 97232
(503) 232-9977
Visit Website

For those who didn’t actually snag Blazers tickets, this nearby sports pub will play every game on its giant projection screen. Spirit of '77 is a cut above more typical sports bars for its thoughtful food, drink, and design, which includes basketball arcade, foosball, and skee-ball. Knock back local beer and dig into some proper sports bar snacks, including nachos, wings, and fried chicken sandwiches slathered in pimento cheese
