  1. 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?

      1. re: myra

        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)...

            Thanks a lot. Just what I wanted to know.

        Now if only Mike Stollenwerk could move back in. I know he couldn't call it Littlefish (that's Chad's place up the block now). Still, it would be nice to have him back in that location.

          Thank God, worst BBQ ever consumed. It was totally laughable. All foods were prewrapped and then pan heated in teeny portions.
          Also one of most expensive BBQ also, fifty bucks later and the two of us went out for dinner.

              I kinda liked it, especially the brisket when they had it.

              Thanks for letting us know!
