Fette Sau is an indoor/outdoor barbecue spot in Fishtown that serves some of the best smoked meat in the city. Since Philly doesn’t really have a regional style, you’re able to get a little bit of everything here, from ribs and brisket to sausages, along with all of the classic sides. The inside feels sort of like one of those rib shacks off the side of the road, with big communal picnic tables and a semi-industrial look, and the outdoor patio has string lights hanging over it, which makes it a good option for a last-minute date, too. Bring a big group and claim a whole table, or grab a seat at the bar for yourself and try a few bourbons - they’ve got over 100 types to choose from.
