I was never so disapointed in my life with BBQ. I am from TX so I was thining any bbq will do, then I got these flyers then I got this deal online. So I dove and tried it...it was gross...he had a bad attitude, ask me about sauce, after I told him I was new he did not help me order, when questioned about hot or mild sauce? I hesitated, I then told him hot sauce on and when I got my stuff home NO SAUCE. There is no indoor seating at South St and NO parking so if your not ordering delivery or pick-up....to bad those outdoor tables are a joke. For this kind of pricing I wanted real flavor but there was none. No salt on anything. No flavor anywhere and no sauce to help make it better. The chicken was so smoky it was bitter, it had to have been sitting for hours to be that black and I couldn't get anywhere near that dark brown cornbread that reaked of masa. Hey if your from the real South or Real West and want real BBQ...you won't find it here. It is funny there was no smell of bbq in the air....a sure sign of fresheness and flavor....I will be giving away all rest of the coupons I bought...to someone who has no tastebuds!! Forgot the sauce.....really!!!

Reading some of the negative reviews - where do they come from?! I am not easy to please - but Phoebe's passes every test. Most important - the food is delicious and you get so much for the price. It's very clean. Spotless!! Honestly I have never - ever! - seen a take out restaurant that is as clean as Phoebe's. Service is fast and to the point. It's a get in and get out kind of atmosphere... They're not going to kiss your ass... and why should they? They show their appreciation by being consistent with quality and dependable with fast delivery. Plus, they actually remember you and take care of you when you go back for more.

Pros: Consistent & Delicious BBQ with Fast Service

I had take out from the Roxborough Umbria Street branch of this restaurant and it was really awful. The beef and pork ribs were so fatty they were barely edible. What a waste of money.

Can i get a hello how are you doing and thanks for coming to our resturante how can we serve you, because with out you the customer we would be out of business. seriously, the entire store all toes guys can kiss my rear. I read the reviews online and begged to challenge them by being extra nice, but I got nothing. No hello, goodbye nothin, jus a freakin grunt and wrinkle of the lip.

oh and more importantly the food, pllllleeeaassee dont waste your time. the beef ribs covered with fat, and skinny like a 2 lb cow. it look almost as if they shaved off the meat and used it for their brisket. i order the half and half thankfully i had chicken to handle my appetite. unfortunately the breast was dry beyond belief. i made it through the meal thankfully with my bottle of sweet baby rays. their sauce overrated watered down brown sugared ketchup mixed with chicken grease.

i assure you im not being to harsh, im jus being honest, to those that like the finer foods, dont waste your time here, go home and watch the cooking channel and prepare a meal for yourself or jus go to the bigger chains. i swear this recession is making mom and pop store owners more rude and the quality of food continues to decrease. this is BULLcowpoo

Pros: pretty menu

Cons: the food, and lack of friendliness

this place deserves 6 stars. If you like food you must eat here before you die. Super delicious tender juicy mouth watering everything you would want from BBQ. Me and my buddies order their 100 wings( BBQ) for $36 and crush them for any excuse we have to get them. The meat is tasty delicious and falls off the bone. Phoebe's will go in my book of all time places one must eat at and you can trust me because I Love Food!

I am so disappointed because I always loved Phoebe's food but the last couple times I called to order the guy who answered was not friendly at all. Even though their menu says they will deliver to any part of the city for $1, they won't deliver unless you have a big order. They also refused to take a credit card (even though the menu says they take credit cards) for a big order because it was too far away....South Street to South Philly. I think it may be under new ownership the past couple of years. They kept the recipes but boy did the service go down the drain. Customer satisfaction is not a concern. Rude.

You wont be dissappointed when you order from this great take out BBQ restaurant. The food is consistant ly great and the service is on point. There is something for everyone on the menu! It is so affordable and much easier then cooking! You can get take out or delivery and have home cooked meal without the mess and time. I dont know what I would do without Phoebe's BBQ! Don't miss out, order from Phoebes!!!

I love the spicy bbq chicken and the macaroni and cheese. the collard greens are also pretty good, but the corn bread needs a little something. Good for take out and if you need a tray for a potluck.

Pros: great food and fast

Phoebe's is the best thing that could have happened to Philadelphia! I live right down the street from
the restaurant and eat there at least twice a week! The food is amazing and there is not one thing on the menu that isn't to die for. Being from the South, I know what good BBQ is, and Phoebe's tops the list of the best BBQ in Philadelphia. The food is very authentic and reasonably priced. Everyone needs to try this place; you won't be dissapointed!

Best BBQ not only in Philly but that I have ever eaten!! The mac & cheese is by far my favorite. The sweet corn bread a close second. I have constant cravings for the mac & cheese : ). I am not sure what the reviewer right before me is talking about with service; I have always received friendly fast service every time I have been there and highly recomend Phoebes to anyone traveling to Philly! Also, I know both the owners personally and they are the exact opposite of digusting. They are both very hard working, kind people who have put a lot of time and pride in this restaurant, and it shows in their cleaniness, professionalism and attention to detail in all aspects of the restaurant, and best of all; it's THE BEST DAMN BBQ I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could give this place 0 stars. I used to work here. I had to leave because the owner is the rudest and most sexist employer you will ever meet. I have never worked at a place with such low sanitary practices. He also forced us to write fake positive reviews online. So if you read anything positive, be wary! In front of customers, they use plastic gloves. In the back, where everything is really prepared, they use bare hands which are rarely cleaned. THIS PLACE IS DIRTY!! THE OWNER IS DISGUSTING!!

This place has really tasty meals. They are relatively inexpensive, and the service tends to be quick since it is a bbq joint. They accept all major credit cards.

My wife purchased Phoebe's BBQ and not only was the service attendent not friendly, the ribs were terrible. She over-bought the stuff and we ultimately threw it away because it could not be blended off into another meal. I personally do not recommend it. I have to admit that we are BBQ snobs. We are native Texans and SW foods have a way of being diffilcult to duplicate and I guarantee you that if Phoebe's was within 200 miles of TX, they would have to close the doors.

On my BBQ quest to Philly I stopped at Phoebe's. WOW-WOW-WOW. Need I say more? I had the ribs , this was ?A Trip to Hog Heaven!? Pork Ribs, tender, cooked and seasoned just right. Beef Ribs, beefy and again cooked correctly. They serve Beef Brisket also, both beef and pork were just like the southern restaurants that I have visited. Beans, Slaw, these items were very good, but who has the room for them? I liked the sauce. You need to buy some for take out to eat later it is so good.

This reviewer before me makes me very angry. I have been going here for years and it is fantastic. It is reasonably priced, and the wings and pork ribs are good. The obviously homade Mac and Cheese, mashed potatoes, and corn bread (Not, Sweet and made with real corn) are good choices for sides. The only problem is that they are inconsistent, but never actually bad. The food is cooked right there on premesis in their smoker and it is good. The person before, obviously went on a bad day for them, or is a snob.

This is bar none the best BBQ in the city. Great service, prompt delivery, and above all great food. The owner is a great guy who welcomes you with a smile and treats all customers respectfully. I highly recommend Phoebe's Bar-B-Q to anyone who knows good BBQ, especially the pulled pork.

If you've ever actually eaten a rib, you would know that this is place is terrible. Even chain BBQ joints are better! No seasoning, the meat was overcooked and did not fall off the bone in a good way. The corn bread tasted like pure wheat grains, the mashed potatoes were soupy with what looked like water, and the beans were far from baked! This food was absolutely terrible, do not go or order from there!

Phoebe's Barbeque is the classic example of fine southern barbeque. The portions are huge, the staff is quick and friendly, and you usually need a to-go box! One of my favorite sides is the cornbread. Just like my Great Grandma used to make! This restaurant is also fine for pickup and delivery. A must-try!

First of all...the place is spotless. I know that they take alot of pride in the food, but also of the hygenal aspect too. Back to the food, they have a great selection of all sorts of bbq from collard greens to pulled pork sandwiches. Everything is out in the open, so you can see how they prep the food to serve the food. They deliver witch is a plus, and they also give pretty good advice as to what you should get to eat depending on your preference. If your lucky, both brothers will be there and you can see them making fun of eachother. If there is one place in the city of Philadelphia that comes to mind for BBQ its PHOEBES. If i could get them to change one thing, it would be to get some more sauces.

I love Phoebe's Bar-B-Q, I was referred by a friend and I absolutely love the food. I've been there to pick up food at least ten times, and the owner/manager guy, who is always present, tried to flirt with me EVERY time. Well, that was the 10th and last time..I'm never going back to a place with such unprofessional manners.

I actually like Phoebe's food quite a bit. But I placed an order today around 12:15 p.m. via campusfood-dot-com, and an hour later, was still waiting for delivery. So I called Phoebe's, which says on its menu that it's open from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Sundays, but no one picked up after ten rings. So I called campusfood-dot-com, and they tried the owner's cell phone, but the owner didn't answer either. So now it's almost 1:30 p.m. and I'm starving and very angry. Phoebe's can kiss this formerly loyal customer goodbye.

Aside from Phoebe's staying open until late & everyday - aside from having ALL FRESH - ALL THE TIME foods - I just like the taste of the b-b-que pork and beef and the always fresh BB Que chicken --- the workers are fast - polite - sort of humorous - and the place is soooo clean ... I just like Phoebe's for their no frills Mac & Chesses, veggies and ribs - and the portions are really generous!! I give Phoebe's a 9.9 !!!THANKS MLF 11-06

I have been received very nicely into the clean and organized little take-out spot of South St --- they were patient while I decided my order and the Pulled Pork sandwich was out of this world - as was the bbq'd whole chicken and the side dishes are always tasty and fresh ...... I really like the young fols in there and go back often - I truly and highly reccomend this BarB-Que place - PHOEBE"S Rocks!!!!

Heard of Phoebe's through word of mouth, and it was probably the best we've ever had after 35 years in Phila. The ribs were tender, substantial, and had a smoked flavor unlike any other. All that, then they slather on some really fabulous tasting sauce, too. Side items were average, but you go to a rib joint for the Ribs. Quality of the food has been consistent after several visits, unlike many places. Phoebe's definitely should be number 1!!

I'd hav to disagree with the Boston comment, I was disappointed up there. At any rate, Phoebe's is the only southwestern style BBQ I'm aware of in Philly. Their pork ribs are good and their Brisket and pulled pork are tasty as well. My only gripe is that the food isn't hot enough when its served. If its beef ribs you want though, head over to dwight's. Philly has a small number but quality bbq restaurants. I ate worse BBQ in Charleston where it's supposed to be good.

This is the best place for a single gal to go in search of some laughs, great pulled pork, and a few compliments. The guys are so cute and friendly, and the food is great. Take it home with a smile and a six pack, and the night is all set.
