    It's good. I've had the pork shoulder plate and the sausages plate. The sausages are probably the best "house-made" sausages I've had in Philly and much better than the sausage at Percy Street (there was none of the dry-crumbliness of the poorly made, too lean sausage I had there) The pork was a big, very tender chunk of smoked pork, seasoned and smoked really nicely.
    For sides I've tried mac & cheese, greens, beans and potato salad. I liked them all. The greens were maybe a little saltier than I'd have liked, though with all of those things it's largely a matter of taste - they're cooked well at least. Again, I'd say they're better than Percy Street.

      How's the seating, etc.? The food sounds great, but is it pleasant to eat there?

        We were there for lunch today. Seating is pretty minimal. There are a couple of tables and some counter seating (all of the seats are backless, so not ultra comfortable). It looks like it would fill up pretty quickly in the evenings. If I lived closer, I would probably do takeout.

        As for the food...pretty good and we're looking forward to trying more things on the menu.

          Actually, here are some pictures of the seating (compliments of Holly Moore)...
