Nick's Charcoal Pit




I don't know if I've blogged about this before but I LOVE Nick's Charcoal Pit. They deliver too, which I love. These photos just don't do the food justice, partly because Tim and I tried to demolish the food before I even thought about taking pictures. The ribs are awesome pork ribs, with there homemade BBQ sauce, which is tangy and vinegary. The wings are the WHOLE wing, so think twice before ordering 24 like I did once. The wings are just grilled and then tossed in the barbeque sauce. But everything has that really awesome charcoal smell, taste, and charred marks I love. The winner though is there onion rings, which were an unlikely awesome treat. They stuck to the batter and the had a good bite ( fresh onions ) and they arrived CRUNCHY!

Dude, Nick's is such a South Philly institution! Damn you, now I want to eat a whole pig coated in bbq sauce.

I ordered from Nick's hoping to find a hidden BBQ gem in Philly. I was very disapointed. We ordered the ribs, wings and onion rings. The meat and sauce were both tasteless. The ribs were so tough that we threw them out. Onion rings were fine.

Bummer! Maybe the delivery is hit or miss, I know some people who only do pick up there. I have had good experiences so far!
