Bring on the Barbecue this Labor Day

Summer is the season of BBQ, but don’t let that craving go once Labor Day comes around! There are plenty of places to enjoy a savory BBQ meal near your Royal Athena apartment. Check out these places to gather with friends and enjoy some delicious barbecue.


Deke’s Bar-B-Que — Chicken, ribs, and sandwich platters. Oh my! Deke’s Bar-B-Que uses three sauces, all made from scratch with local ripe tomatoes. They include Deke’s “Straight-Up Q Sauce,” which is similar to a Kansas City-style sauce; the Carolina Red, made with vinegar and cayenne peppers; and the ultimate spicy “Triple X” sauce.


Dwight’s Southern Barbecue —The late-night hours at Dwight’s Southern Barbecue make this the popular choice if you’re looking for a midnight snack…or a full-on midnight meal. The establishment features a wide selection of delicious meats and sides. Don’t skip out on dessert!


Barkley’s BBQ — Barkley’s BBQ does not believe in canned food. The ribs are juicy and tangy and the place has been consistently named as the “Best Soul Food in Philly.” What’s not to love?


Charlie’s Country Ribs — The ribs at this place are so good, it’s in the name! Charlie’s Country Ribs serves breakfast, lunch and dinner six days a week. You can also purchase Charlie’s barbecue sauce by the quart or the gallon for home enjoyment.
