great pork

Went this past Monday for the buffet - every monday night, 5-8 (I think) is all you can eat BBQ - and let me tell you... the best $19 I have spent in a loooong time. Their BBQ sauce is just indescribable, it makes everything taste incredible. The smoked meats are to die for, especially the pulled brisket and pulled pork. Being the pig I am, I sampled just about everything at the buffet, and man is it hard to choose when you only have so much space on your plate! Ive had the aforementioned brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, house chili, smoked wings, smoked tenderloin, and of course, the ribs. I guess alot of people judge a BBQ place by its ribs... The ribs on this particular night were not the best I have had, but I understand that on a buffet line, they may not spend as much time in the smoker so I forgive them. They were still tender, the BBQ sauce really makes them, I wouldnt describe them as "falling off the bone" though. All the meats have that signature pink color, indicating real time over the fire. The pile of logs outside in the parking lot will confirm that. The chili is super thick and meaty - definately not made w/ ground beef, it appeared to be shredded brisket, but my God was it good. The smoked wings, let me just tell you - dip wing in BBQ sauce, insert into mouth, bite down gently, pull out bone. Unreal. The smoked tenderloin is cooked in a mushroom flavored sauce, and is a pleasent change. Even the sides are great, I was especially fond of the garlic mash potatoes and the cornbread, which was awesome. You can even get spicy shrimp, smoked salmon and beef ribs and cookies if you've got room. Overall, you owe yourself to check this place out. Go on a Monday, and gorge yourself on some of the city's best BBQ year-round. But get there before 6, because the line gets long.

Pros: Authentic smoked meats, all-you-can-eat on Mondays, Great Value

Cons: Smaller place, gets crowded, off the beaten path

This BBq joint is so mind-blowingly good you wouldn't even believe it. The ribs, brisket, and pulled pork are the best there. I also like the cornbread. The atmosphere is great.

The best, most mosit chicken, pork or ribs at a great price. They offer prepacked meat and sides, with easy directions. Great value and great service.

By far one of the best BBQ places around....No joke. The ribs alone are the best around as well as the brisket. If you are not hungry do not go there as you wil get a lot for you money.

Ribs, Pork, or Chicken it doesn't matter, they are all very good. Order a Pulled Pork Sandwich and step over to the "Add Yourself" pot of BBQ Sauce that is kept warm and spoon some on. You'll never order it anywhere else again. This place was once a Lunch Cart until word got around. It has been kept simple but TASTEFULLY expanded to a warehouse. I hope it stays that way.

Tried Swet Lucy's after reading the rave reviews and was not terribly impressed, as the meal itself was mediocre. The chicken was pretty good as were the collard greens, but the pulled pork (which was not all that pulled and was in big chunks), the ribs, and baked beans all suffered from a BBQ sauce that was too reminiscent of tomato paste. The whipped sweet potatoes were just fair. They were very friendly there and had very, very good cornbread though.

I never liked bbq but my friends do. They kept hearing about this place called "Lucy's" but they weren't quite sure of the exact name and nobody knew exactly where it was but we set off anyway on a mission to find what we were told was the best bbq around. After many wrong turns we finally found it (not difficult at all now that we know ...) and it was absolutely worth the round-about trip. It was great fun and I finally understand what people see in bbq! Love it! I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to their ribs. Even standing in the fast-moving line was fun.

well you only have one option, sweet lucys. It is so great that i would walk in the snow just to have it. Warning it is very addictive, i think that's why it is sooo good. Don't forget about the sides they match the meats in taste. the BBQ sauce is soooo good, i wish i could make it that good.

Great place to eat if you are looking for more casual, kid-friendly and non-trendy dining. The pulled pork, brisket and the cornbread are to die for as is the sweet tea...like a trip down South for your tastebuds. Staff are great and the service is fast although the lines may seem daunting when you first walk in we have never waited for more than 15 minutes for our food. We have had them cater several parties and have always recieved great feedback from our guests! We almost don't want to tell them where to go because that means the lines will be longer...but the secret is already out!

Pros: Fabulous food, friendly service, good amount of parking

Cons: Country music!! Personal preference, but it is after all southern barbecue! It adds to the fun!

Sweet Lucy's is the best BBQ restaurant in Philly. It's real barbecue cooked in a wood burning pit not in an oven then slather with BBQ sauce. Their menu is straightforward and offers a variety of meat plus all the fixings. You get all the flavor and options at a wallet friendly price.

PROS: Great food

Editorial from

In Short
Lucy's stokes her Southern Pride smoker with hickory wood, which imparts its foresty flavors to every inch of tender pork shoulder, dark beef brisket, and succulent whole rotisserie chicken that enters it. Subtle sauce…
