Great for Philly BBQ. Nice retro decor. Good service and food. It can be a little noisy and wait for table in a busy hour. Try to go off hour.

The food here is absolutely amazing and that drives my four star rating. I've been to Percy's twice now, and both times I found myself wishing they had a better beer selection to go with their awesome food. Service is ok but nothing to write...More

Stopped by on Sunday 10/1, for dinner. Place is completely shut down. Asked at the Starbucks next door what was happening and they said that they went out of business. 😤

Although the service was a little on the slow side, we were out with a couple of friends and appreciated not being rushed through dinner. The dinner itself was very good. We chose the 3 meat dinner with the ribs, brisket and pulled pork. They...More

Really good fries. Although ribs were slathered in rub/sauce, meat was overcooked, dry and stringy. My husband tried the pork belly sandwich which was literally a smaller piece of pork thrown on a very big piece of bread - dry and flavorless - as was...More
