We chanced upon this restaurant while strolling the city streets so took a chance. It looked inviting. It wasn't crowded and we were seated immediately. And we sat, and sat. No one even took notice of us. After at least 10 minutes, I suggested that we leave and we made ready to get up. The hostess saw this and immediately... More

We've been coming to Percy Street BBQ since we first heard about it on Triple D, the tv program. Recently there was a change of ownership, this was our third and last visit since the change. The one high spot was the server Molly who was attentive. Other than that, the food delivery was slow, the ribs were burned and... More

We visited for the first time and ordered the sampler for $25 per person. It featured 3 types of meat and sides served family style. There was plenty of food and it was all delicious. Great smoke flavor in all the meat! The collard greens, baked beans and cole slaw were great! For dessert we had the key lime pie.... More

This is a mixed review. First, I'll start with the good. My husband loved the flavor of his brisket sandwich (although he thought it was rather small). The cold slaw and beans with burnt ends were good (although a bit dry). The service was excellent and the atmosphere was good. Now, to the negative. I ordered the ribs. Can you... More

Ribs were not as tender as I had hoped, but tasted absolutely delicious, beautiful smoky taste, and the barbecue sauce options are all really tasty and excellent. Great choice of beers, and I enjoyed the barbecue beans although they were slightly vinegary and had very little burned ends meat in them. Wasn't so keen on the collared greens or devilled... More

Since there were 6 of us, we decided to eat family style, getting the ribs, brisket and pulled pork to share, along with the 4 sides of coleslaw, beans, potato salad and collard greens. Service was pretty good, especially on a busy Saturday night. Drinks were replenished quickly, and we loved having bottles of water brought to the table. We... More

We were actually heading to another place but passed by here and decided to give it a try after reading the menu posted outside - Brisket Burger sounded good. Inside its casual and festive with an open floor plan. An extensive beer list started us off and we ordered asked for the "Burger" . Turned out that the posted menu... More

The food was excellent with only one exception (coke slaw). The beans, collards and potato salad were delicious as was the cornbread. And the meats are terrific. Great service also.

Went here for the second time at lunch. Had the new Brisket burger and the 1/2 pound brisket. This is very very good BBQ. May not be the best but close. You can order your brisket lean or with a little more flavor and fat. We had sides of burnt beans and the german salad which was good, not great... More
