Traffic backed up for blocks for RingSide steak sale


The steaks have since sold out

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A steak sale brought people out of their homes in droves to line up outside RingSide Steakhouse on Saturday.

The steakhouse was offering frozen, dry-aged steaks for the first time in the restaurant’s 75-year history.

Traffic on West Burnside was backed up for blocks as people lined up in their cars in hopes of nabbing some high-quality beef to cook at home. Portland police officers were sent out to help direct traffic.

The drive-up sale was supposed to last from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., however, by noon RingSide had run out of steaks.

If you weren’t able to buy a box of the coveted beef, there might be a chance to do so in the future. According to RingSide Steakhouse’s website, the restaurant is in the process of creating a pre-order pick-up program.
