This place is the worst. All the food is cold and press cooked. I wasted an entire 30.00 groupon on them. Horrible staff. The food is bland as heck. Mac n cheese is soup!!!!!!!!!!!!! Greens are from a can!!!!!!! Stay away. This is not bar b que. If you are looking for bar b que, do not go here. The place is dirty and the food is NOT bar b que. A waste of time. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!! 6/12/14. ***Less than one star. Wasted gas going to this place

THE WORST BBQ I EVER ATE IN MY LIFE! I ordered the XL Pork rib platter with yams and mac & cheese. First, it looked horrible.The yams were straight from the can. The mac & cheese look like soup. It wasn't cheesy or baked. It was worse than boxed mac & cheese by Kraft. Matter of opinion, Krafts taste much better than Phoebe's. They poured some kind of milk sauce over top of boiled mac noodles and served it just like that. The ribs were, at the very least, tender but had no flavor what-so-ever! They were bland as heck! The bbq sauce was watery and flavorless. It didn't even stick to the ribs and it was kind of oily. I don't know who's cooking but they should be FIRED! I wouldn't serve my dog this food and it had the nerve to be rated by Zagat. Zagat's a joke! I ordered the platter about an hour ago (3/28/13). The worst $20 I ever spent. Now my stomach feels like I want to "toss my cookies". I wouldn't eat there again if I was super drunk or super starving. Those who think the food is good obviously has never had good bbq. This was my first time, so I tried to stick with the basics and wish I hadn't ordered at all. NEVER AGAIN! If I want bbq I'll stick to my neighborhood joint, Dwights! Atleast I know the basics will be good. I'll take that ride Down the Bottom, Lancaster Ave, where I know my people can cook greens, string beans, cheesy BAKED mac & cheese, real candied yams and bbq sauce so good you'll be dipping the bread they give in the sauce like its gravy, with that sweet & spicy sticky goodness. No offense, but I'm being honest, I'm guessing the people who actually wrote that they like that crap at Phoebe's must be relatives, employee's, owners or white (no offense). I agree with a previous review, no colored person would ever eat there or think it's good for that matter. Reminds me of my uncles' wife's cooking :~( Yuck! Lastly, they answer the phone like you're calling someone's home not like a business. Unprofessional. They tried but failed! Try something else Pheobe's.

I'm really surprised at some of the reviews on here. I must admit the staff can sometimes be on the more serious side but the food is always delicious!! My food has always been delivered hot and on time, and I love frequenting the food cart on arch. I hope that some of the other patrons that have reviewed Phoebe's poorly will give it another try.

Asked Hot sauce, salt and pepper with the order nicely and never came with the order.Just plain food which were chargeable to them. Also the driver called me to come to the lobby to pick up the food after they charge $2 delivery charge plus additional tip.Bottom line, the chicken was terrible. tasted frozen chicken wing. I will never order from this guys again. Hope this helps.
