As a Texan, I refuse to eat BBQ in NYC. This place is the ONLY exception.
Dan Delaney learned from the best in Texas, drove a smoker and fire wood from Austin to Brooklyn and tested recipes for months to serve you the perfect brisket in his beautiful restaurant.
The brisket is tender and pleasantly moist, with a thick black crust around the edges. If you play your cards right, you can have a monster feast here for about $35 per person. [Eater 38 Member]
Daniel just knocked Fette Sau out of first place for fave NYC BBQ. The brisket is INSANE. So tender, juicy, fatty with the perfect amount of salt. Also amaze potato salad + collard greens.
The BYOB style allows you to not pay expansive prices for craft beer and you can find good ones the in the small groceries around the corner. BBQ? Order a little bit of everything and be happy!
BrisketTown is known for a “food laboratory” persona - sample the fruits of their labor in the form of breakfast tacos!
This is the best brisket I've ever had... and that's coming from a Texan!
Daniel tries every single piece of meat before he serves it to you. He is that dedicated to quality and meat.
Don't ask questions. Just put the brisket in your face.
The waits get long and the meat sells out early at this tiny Williamsburg counter service spot, but if you arrive when they open, you can get some of the city's best brisket and ribs.
Always go for the fatty brisket. Better texture/flavor compared to the leaner cut. And lets be honest... You're not eating here to count calories.
The only real smoked brisket in NYC (yes I have tried _)
Get the breakfast tacos and bring them to the river to eat.. Bfast tacos are much better in the outdoors. It's their natural habitat
Meat's great, but expect a deli feel, more than a restaurant. Not a big space, so small parties are best & don't expect to sit & linger, to finish your drinks. BYOB by the way.
Great Texas style brisket! No sauce needed. BYOB. Brisket melts in your mouth!!
Amazing brisket. Dan is incredibly dedicated and passionate about serving the best brisket around.
Bring friends because chowing down on some brisket is more fun in a group. Use Cover on your iPhone to easily split the check and not have to wait for the bill!
great atmosphere and music, and what a cozy bathroom!
brisket taco on the weekends is phenomenal
Tastes so good when it hits your lips
Tasty meat, great sides, and BYOB. Enough said.
Breakfast tacos and blue bottle coffee is a nice addition to the neighborhood.
Fatty brisket is all you need here. Best in NYC. Solid potato salad, too. Byob for now.
Pre order and speed to the front of the line.
Meat good. Not lots tables. Wrote nicer review but foursquare say use less words.
Reminds me of BBQ places around Fort Worth, TX and south, down into hill country.
Worth a trek from Manhattan for delicious Texas style BBQ. Get the Mac & Cheese and thank me later.
Everything is good here. Get the Mac n cheese, brisket and ribs. This place doesn't disappoint.
We shared the meat plate that gave you a little bit of every meat they had, and it was delicious! The cornbread, amazing! As well as the coleslaw! Definetely a place every BBQ lover should stop by.
The brisket melts in your mouth. Wedge salad is surprisingly gourmet, even if you aren't a blue cheese fan. Cole slaw is also very refreshing and not heavy. All the stars.
Not actually open from 11am-11pm on Sunday
Love this place! The owner is really nice and passionate about BBQ. Been following Delaney since the brisket lab days and they are easily one of the top BBQ places in nyc.
Consistently the best brisket ever. How brisket was meant to be eaten. And sides are not merely sides at BrisketTown---case in point: get the collard greens.
This is easily among the best brisket we've ever had. The breakfast tacos are not to be missed, which are a newer addition to the menu and incorporate their namesake ingredient.
The lean brisket was a little too dry but the fatty brisket is just about the best brisket I've ever eaten. And I've eaten some good BBQ.
The veggie tacos are great. But don't get sucked in. You want 2 brisket tacos. They're too good to split up.
Try Fette Sau
Go to the bodega two doors down, that same side of the street to choose from a great selection of beers to bring into this place!
the crust on the brisket and ribs is packed with flavor! sweet potato pie is bomb too. they sell blue bottle coffee and are BYOB. credit cards accepted.
Order the vegetarian chili
BYO, so grab something beforehand.
Try the brisket
Brisket & pulled pork are extremely juicy & flavorful!!
Everything, everything is delicious -- the brisket is incredible, the collard greens vingeary delicious, every side excellently executed -- but you would miss out if you did not try a slice of pie
Great smoked turkey special. Brisket is outstanding. Hot link is great. The meat sampler is the way to go tasting everything.
She has the most gorgeous green eyes. At the counter. The counter girl.
Briskeeeeet!!! Best ever!! Cornbread with butter whipped with honey is so delicious! Collards are amazing. And staff is supernice too!
