Though his dishes once occupied the white-linen tablecloths of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants, Chef Gerald Dougherty now prefers making napkins messy with his signature recipes of rich, meaty barbecue fare. The former head chef of L'Aigla D'Or and Founders at the Bellevue, Chef Gerald currently oversees the pit at Little Louie's BBQ, a casual eatery he opened to satisfy his hankering for down-home grub. Not one to color within the lines, he draws on barbecue styles from across the country—think North Carolina, Kansas City, and Memphis—and smokes his meats over cherrywood, applewood, and hickory chips.

Little Louie’s dining room betrays the same down-home inspirations as its menu. Rustic lumber lines the countertops, and light fixtures reminiscent of branches illuminate the expansive space. If they can peel their eyes away from the beef brisket and pulled pork on their plates, guests will notice Butch Cassidy and Lone Ranger posters hanging from the walls, classic Western movies playing on the 70-inch flat-screen television, and outlaws discreetly taking down Wanted signs that bear their uncanny resemblances.

Fat Jack's BBQ’s proprietor Glenn Gross has always been passionate about barbecue. Starting at the age of 11, Glenn manned the grill at family cookouts, fine-tuning his technique and flavors over the years. He eventually brushed aside career paths in dentistry and music to claim his favorite job title⎯pitmaster.

In order to develop the combination of meats, rubs, and sauces that Fat Jack’s uses to this day, in the early ’90s, Glenn traveled to the nation's barbecue meccas—Texas, the Carolinas, Kansas City, and Memphis. He learned how to create dishes such as Carolina pulled pork, St. Louis–style ribs, and Texas beef brisket. Now, his rich blends of spice rubs and notes of smoke have won him more than 200 national and local awards and various bear hugs.

While the chefs at Brothers Kitchen Restaurant probably aren’t your grandma, they might know her recipes. Drawing on the classic dishes imparted by a Southern upbringing, they put an upscale spin on soul dishes. Pan-fried, grilled, or barbequed, their fish always comes with a side of tartar or cocktail sauce that adds a tangy finish to the crispy filets. The chefs also turn their hand to barbeque staples such as fried chicken, whole slabs of ribs, and fried shrimp and scallops. The honey-sweet smell of cornbread drifts from ovens, hinting at a thick crust and goldenrod interior ideal for mopping up sauces. Live jazz punctuates sated sighs, the stringed instruments drifting warmly and singers soulfully expressing how sad it is when a horse eats a rose.

The grill masters at Wildfire BBQ Co. sear marinated meat over open flames for their loyal legion of customers and a number of specially catered events. For those seeking the restaurant experience, seats at the counter or inside a cozy booth are prime placement for the enjoyment of hearty helpings of barbecued comfort food.

House-made rice and bread puddings cool mouths after smoky meals, whereas four catering packages hush the howls of stomachs striving to be heard over the small talk at parties or the sounds of synergy at corporate functions.
