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.
BrisketTown is known for a “food laboratory” persona - sample the fruits of their labor in the form of breakfast tacos!
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!
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.
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 _)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
The brisket is phenomenal. Pulled pork and pork ribs also pretty good. The pickles they serve with the sampler were awesome, too.
Absolutelly amazing brisket! Pulled porked was also to be mentioned. Will come back pretty soon for the pork ribs.
It's crazy delicious. The experience was better when you walked through to order. The table service takes away from it. The menu changed as well: Texas Chilli is not as good as before. Get burnt ends.
The bathroom is beautiful
The brisket is incredible, the ribs not so much
They ran out of brisket !
No longer selling breakfast tacos :(
Omg! They have topo chico!
The back-to-the-basics BBQ joint from Dan Delaney brings a touch Texan authenticity to brisket-fiends all over the city.
Just get brisket, don't waste meat room with the other choices.
Togo service has really gone downhill. Slow as hell. 20 minutes when it wasn't even busy.
