I am from Memphis TN. Once I have gotten a taste of Dwight's sauce I was sold. There wasn't much of a smoke flavor, but the sauce mask the need for that. I have to have Dwight's Ribs at least once a week. Pros: Good Food Cons: Parking and that they are closed on Mondays more

Great BBQ; mac n cheese is amazing 4/7/2007

Great BBQ with a lot of meat. The sauce is a good mix of hot and sweet. The mac n cheese is great, and I know mac n cheese. The service was quick and the price was reasonable. more

This is great barbeque 10/17/2005

Dwight's is only one of two places that has great barbeque for this area. It's not Chicago or Kansas City, but it's the best I have had here. The ribs are tender, and the price is right. I highly recommend the potato is to die for!!!!!!!!!! The ambience is perfect - it's a barbeque joint in the inner city and it's take out only. THAT is a barbeque joint!!!!!!!! Pros: Tender ribs, Great sides, Price more

Sauce Put's Dwight's Over the Top 12/18/2004

There's so much smoke in the place you're barely able to see. This aides in whetting your appetite, hut also burns your eyes and makes your clothes smell like barbecue. I tried ordering both pork and beef, but they were OUT of beef that night. We got two pork sandwiches, a full slab of pork ribs, and the mac and cheese. Don't expect the sandwich to be a sandwich- it was simply the pork short ribs with two pieces of bread. The sauce is in a league of its own. Get the hot- it's sweet, a little spicy, and just the right consistency. It's a suprisingly complex flavor, everything's perfectly balanced so one complements the other. The meat was good, some parts a little tough- but tender overall. The mac and cheese is ok. It did have a distinctly subtle flavor to it. Pros: Great sauce, Tender ribs Cons: , Suprisingly Expensive more

Riyibs 1/5/2003

I'm originally from Texas so I can get a bit uppity about my ribs. Dwight's ribs are amazing. Def best north of the Mason Dixon and East of Chicago. I was a bit disappointed in the mac and cheese but I'll be coming back for the meat. more

More than just ribs 8/11/2002

The ribs at Dwight's are more than just ribs. They provide the answer to all of life's important questions: How was woman created? From a rib What do all of mankind have in common: Ribs (anatomically speaking) What really matters? Delicious ribs Dwight's ribs are mouth-watering, soul satisfying, scrumptuous tender ribs, with a tantalizing sauce that'll make you sing for your supper! more

Good enough to smack somebody 8/8/2002

mmm...mmmm...mmmmm what else can I say about Dwight's. The ribs are meaty and almost falling off the bone. The chopped Babecue is juicy and succulent. I love the selection of side items ranging from backed mac and cheese and potato salad to broccoli and cheese and seafood salad with several delicious selections in between. Be sure to call ahead and place your order because the place is always crowded. So for the absolute best barbecue in Philadelphia, head to either of Dwight's two locations. Pros: Great chopped bbq, Succulent ribs, variety of sides Cons: no parking, crowded, have to call ahead more

  • In Short
    Dwight's pork ribs are beyond reproach - seared on the outside and tender at the bone. The beef ribs are succulent and flavorful, if a little fatty. Perhaps this is like...
