Our family decided to try a BBQ place in Philly and opted for Percy St (even though it's on South St . . go figure?) based on positive reviews. After the requisite 10-15 mins of trying to find parking- the nightmare that it is all over Philly(not sure how people stand it), we got to the the restaurant. Were seated right away.
The place has a fairly comfortable atmosphere to it- very open seating area with high ceilings, lots of activity. There were four of us so we each ordered something different, ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket and we kind of sampled them all. You can order a sampler of the same served family style, but ordering the 4 entrees was cheaper and just the right amount of food for us. They serve the BBQ sauce in small little shot bottles which we thought wouldn't be enough. But it was actually adequate. For dessert, we went for the pecan pie which was really excellent.
Overall, Percy St is a nice option if seeking a neighborhood type restaurant and are in the mood for decent BBQ.
