The recent addition of three items to my small collection of 1982 World’s Fair memorabilia made me want to revisit Sweet P’s Barbeque and Soul House. The World’s Fair logo is everywhere at Sweet P’s. In addition to the collectibles on the walls and shelves, the logo is displayed on the shirts and hats of the employees. A shelf in the dining room is filled with cans of World’s Fair Beer.
Last month I had an excellent chicken sandwich but the rib I sampled didn’t meet expectations. My wife and I gave Sweet P’s another try on Friday night with much better results. The chicken was once again perfect. This time, the ribs on our sampler platter easily separated from the bone. We really liked their Tomato N’ Blues Salad as a side item. For dessert, we split a bacon chocolate chip cookie. The unusual treats are made for Sweet P’s by Magpies Bakery. I’m sure our son will want to try one when he’s home for the holidays.
