    Reputation was that this was going to be king of NY BBQs. Not even close. Flavors are good, but brisket was dried out. Only sauce is sweet/molassessy. It's an alright place but nowhere near the top.

    Called the "Bright-Eyed Breakfast Sandwich," Blue Smoke offers a fried egg, pimento cheese, and spicy fried chicken served on some sort of biscuit and doughnut hybrid. Read more

    Danny Meyer’s contribution to NYC barbecue is probably the fanciest spot on the list, so naturally, you should order the prime rib. Get the Alabama “white” wings, too. Read more

    I second the spicy cheese fries - there's just something about pigging out from a bucket that adds to the allure! My friend was pleased with the huge gluten-free menu that's mostly unadvertised.

    Baby back ribs are great! One rack is enough for two people. Order two sides: french fries and blue cheese with bacon dip sauce and it will be perfect!
