Great BBQ! Chicken, Ribs, Brisket. Doesn't matter. We tried it all. Excellent biscuits. Tasty greens. Lots of beers. Reminders of home every which way.

Terrible service, salty food, surrounded by dirty tables that were never cleared the whole time we were eating. Found out they have new owners, they are not doing a very good job. Will not return again. Used to be our go to place.

Percy Street normally has great BBQ, however, on this visit, the ribs were only slightly warm and a little tough. The mac-n-cheese was hard, greasy, and not up to their usual creamy standards. Every time we go, the food is inconsistent. Apparently, it depends on who is cooking that day; and for the price that Percy Street charges, there should never be a lack of quality. Yet, this restaurant is still a good place for casual dining.

My ribs were burnt on the bottom, the corn bread was Almost burnt, the coleslaw was terrible and my 2nd Arnold palmer was sour lemonade.

What a disappointment! I brought my foodie family for a fun, casual dinner, and I was very embarrassed. The worst thing was the service. They brought our appetizers, but we had no plates or serving utensils. On the third try, I actually went over the waiter station to ask AGAIN. Then, they started bringing the main course while the table was still crowded with dishes from the apps. We had to ask them to clear the first course. Then they didn't bring us plates. AGAIN. It was like our waiters had never served in a restaurant or even eaten at one. Clueless.
The food was ok overall. The ribs were inedible--like beef jerky! The chicken was tasty. The chopped salad was tiny, but good.
The place was half empty at 7.30 on a friday night, so it wasn't loud.
The wall decor above our table were old folding chairs. Really? Who thinks that's charming?
Frankly, the noise level was the least of their problems.

We would recommend Percy Street BBQ for nothing. With the new ownership now for something less than a year, it is on a huge downslope. My ribs were burned, the cornbread was cold, with a large clob of butter which also was cold and the noise level from the boom box made conversation impossible with . After 4 years of loving this place, the love affair is over.

Percy Street is an upscale BBQ restaurant that does a good job of replicating Texas BBQ. Granted, the best Texas BBQ joints are usually no-frills affairs and Percy Street is a bit of a "theme" restaurant, but ultimately the good is quote good. The mac and cheese is outstanding.

My wife and i went in for the new burger of the week. Amazing price for a tasty brisket burger with pork belly and collared greens with a hard cider. The only problem was the burger being a little too tall to actually get in the mouth! #Firstworldproblems
