If you’re in the neighborhood of South Street and hunger strikes, fear not. Percy Street Barbecue will come to the rescue. My husband and I were at a loose end on Saturday evening, and he had a hankering for barbecue. Being a southern boy, that happens from time to time. We hadn’t been to Percy Street for awhile, so we strolled over, and we’re happy to report that it is going strong.
Bon Appetit Darling Erin O’Shea is still at the helm as both chef and owner, and her reputation for great barbecue and soulful cooking is well earned.
We opted for the “Lockhart” menu choice, which is basically a feast. For $19.00 per person (the entire table has to commit), we enjoyed generous slabs of ribs, brisket and chicken, as well as all of the sides on the menu.
The toasted corn bread with onion jam was a delightful accompaniment to the meats.
The sides included cole slaw, homemade sauerkraut, German potato salad, collard greens, and baked beans.
Given the generosity of this menu option, we steered clear of appetizers, which was a good move, despite the tempting options. And when it came time for dessert we were simply stuffed. But, the pecan pie and the key lime pie did look good.
The beer selection is excellent; a wide array of local craft brews as well as plenty of imports. And my husband, whose mixology standards are notoriously high, deemed Percy Street’s Manhattan as excellent. High praise indeed.
Best part: our entire bill came to $53.00 before tip.
Thanks, Percy Street. We’ll be back soon.
