Percy Street's Texas Barbecue with a Side of Charity

Every other day of the year chef Steven Cook, and chef Michael Solomonov of Percy Street serve up some of Philadelphia’s best Texas-style barbecue, with a variety of slowly cooked meats paired with baked beans, coleslaw, and other classic barbecue sides.

Along with feeding your family, for every turkey sold, Percy Street will donate a turkey to a local food bank.
