Happy Thursday, Philly! It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood!

After a long weekend of everyone stuffing their faces with great BBQ for the holiday, we just can’t get it off our minds! Check out our favorite BBQ joints in this great city!

Sweet Lucy’s

Any meat you decide to go with – chicken, brisket, ribs, or pulled pork – will be cooked to savory perfection. Sweet Lucy’s is a BYOB walk up and order restaurant that offers catering and take-out. The atmosphere is very laid back and there are no waiting servers. The purpose of this joint is plain and simple – the food. The best part about their BBQ is their sauce. If you don’t have a chance to pop in to eat but you’re having a party near or in the city, we highly recommend you using their services- they’ll even deliver!

Percy Street

We’ve told you about this place before, but we just can’t get enough. If you’re in the city, this restaurant is the perfect place to fulfill your southern BBQ cravings. You need to head here, grab a canned beer, and enjoy any of their flavorful meats (the best are the brisket and the smoked chicken salad). Top that off with their specialty jalapeño corn bread and mac and cheese… yum!

900 South St

Phoebe’s BBQ

“We serve the best ribs in Philadelphia” claims this southern BBQ “hole in the wall” on South Street. If you’re having friends over and want to leave the cooking to the professionals, this is the place for takeout in Center City. They cook up great wings, grilled pulled pork, and the mac and cheese will leave you wanting to come back every day of the week – only thing to worry about is keeping your summer diet!

Baby Blues BBQ

The food, service and atmosphere are just right at Baby Blues in University City. They always offer great drink specials and the food is delicious. Try their cole slaw, pulled pork, brisket, cord bread, corn on the cob, and … okay, you can try anything and we’re sure you’ll have a great, filling meal!
