Informal, cafeteria style - As close to perfection as far as organization, cleanliness, value and taste. I moved outside of the city a few years ago, and this is the only thing that I miss. Excellent product and the owners have always been present and cooking when I've gone. Next time you drive past the Cottman exit on I-95, stop in and treat yourself.
If this were the south or texas I'd probably knock them down a star but this is the real deal in Philly. The beef brisket is excellent. Tender and moist. The cornbread is also a standout. the beans are ho hum but really, you come here for the meat and on that note they deliver.
since smokey bones closed and famous dave's is kinda far up the boulevard sweet lucy's is the best bbq in town. although the bbq is good it is not exceptional. what is exceptional is the fact that you can get good bbq in the north east of philly. we weren't fond of the beans, but the pulled pork was excellant. it is BYOB but since the menu is cheaper than the others we didn't mind. especially since you can walk across the street to Flukes for a drink in another great atmosphere. a word to the wise do NOT leave your car in the lucy parking lot past 9pm 'cause they will lock you in and there is no way out. long story (4 couples/cars, raining, no police/AAA/taxi) ... don't ask.
When I was growing up in the Northeast, there weren't any barbecue restaurants in the area, good or otherwise. That all changed when a trailer with a pit barbecue parked in a lot off Street Road and called itself Sweet Lucy's.
As they say, the rest is history. Having spent several years living in the South and loving good barbecue, I really missed it when I came back to Philadelphia. Sweet Lucy's to the rescue! First, the sauces that are available are the real deal--nothing pre-bottled about these. My favorite is the vinegar sauce with hot pepper flakes. Not that you'll need sauce. The meats are so tasty on their own. The ribs and the chicken are the best I've had anywhere. Side dishes? They're unbelievable too. Personally I enjoy their mashed potatoes (which I just know are full of unhealthful stuff but I just don't care) and their collard greens, which seemed something of an exotic delicacy to my family at first.
I've only ever gotten take out, but Sweet Lucy's has gone from a trailer to a warm, mountain lodge kind of restaurant.
I knew for sure they were serious when they provided rolls of paper towels on each table.
