    Found this place looking for a spot to watch the World Cup. Food was fantastic! Service was outstanding. Our bartender Christine was friendly, and amazing. Good beers on tap. Definitely will go again

    Delicious drinks & authentic BBQ I'm from Texas, and this is pretty great BBQ. The Austin salad with pulled chicken is so filling and delicious. Mac n cheese is to die for and don't forget the sauces!

    This is what (food) dreams are made of... Butcher Bar has the best BBQ in the NYC/NJ area

    One of my favorite neighborhood places! Brisket, chic and pulled pork are all on pt. A pretty good range of whiskey to choose from as well.

    Burnt ends are delish but the quality has severely declined since it opened. Food was cold and flavorless today. Huge bummer. Won't be back.

    Great BBQ In Astoria. The burnt ends here is excellent, great flavor, and melts in your mouth good - you will eat it all. The drink cocktails are very good, friendly staff and nice decor.

    Pulled pork sandwich is great!! The bread was nice and toasty and not at all soggy. Sweet tea is not that great though. Mac and cheese is very heavy but good.

    The atmosphere & general image of this place is great. Very clean and presentable. I had the Mopped and Chopped Brisket sandwich. Delicious, but then again, when is brisket not delicious. Will return

    My Filipino boyfriend was disappointed in the "longaniza." My pulled Bork was great, though.

    The half baked mac and cheese ($10.99) is to die for! We also got a pulled pork and a pulled chicken sandwich both darn delicious! Will be back to this place for sure!

    Bad system for seating dinner rush. They have "reservations" but not really. Still waited an hour. Don't go during the rush. Food's good, small portions, service sometimes slow, not worth wait.

    the Philly Briskett sandwich is AMAZINGLY good and the burnt ends are also good the meat is so tender
  • The Sandwich Enthusiast .
    I had the Bob's Burger (1/2 lb brisket/bacon blend, thesandwichenthusiast.com/butcherbar) here, & cannot recommend going back for it enough. Beautiful backyard & a new bar area worth checking out.

    Bathrooms at this barbecue place were dirty and the ribs, pulled pork, and burnt ends were without texture or taste. Avoid this place.

    No longer BYOB but they do have an excellent drink selection. Get the burnt ends! Be warned- they do run out.

    Tried the four meat platter. Looks good right? It wasn't. In fact, we left almost all of it behind. Didn't even wrap out to go. Who'd eat it? Bland and dry. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    The BBQ sauce tastes line it's from a can. Very unauthentic.

    The burnt ends and pork belly are the standouts here, while the brisket is probably the weakest

    Porky's platter is delicious. The pork belly and ribs is excellent with a side of Mac and cheese. Plus complimentary desert!

    If you have not ordered yet, get up and walk out now. This place made me want to become a vegetarian. Everything LOOKS good but the meat here is bland and textureless. You'll thank me for this review.

    Burnt ends were great. Some other things were a bit dry. But the sauce is good and solves that.
