    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.

    A wood-fueled smoker from Austin’s Franklin Barbecue produces gloriously pink slices of beef burnished with black pepper and smoke-infused lacings of fat in the popular Pat LaFrieda brisket. Read more

    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.

    Quinten Farmer · January 18, 2013
  • John G.

    The only real smoked brisket in NYC (yes I have tried _)

    John Gallagher · August 2, 2012
  • Craig W.

    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!!

    Meat, made outdoors in a Texas-wood fired smoker. Cut to order by owner himself. The menu is minimal, just two or three smoked meats each night & a seasonal side & a slice or two of house white bread Read more

    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!

    Jersey-born Daniel Delaney—a bespectacled former Web journalist—might not seem like an obvious poster child for purist Texan ’cue. But the Yankee is turning out some seriously craveworthy meat. Read more

    Tasty meat, great sides, and BYOB. Enough said.

    Breakfast tacos and blue bottle coffee is a nice addition to the neighborhood.

    Matt Kiser · January 20, 2013

    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.

  • Bryan V.

    Reminds me of BBQ places around Fort Worth, TX and south, down into hill country.

    Bryan Viper · December 12, 2014

    Worth a trek from Manhattan for delicious Texas style BBQ. Get the Mac & Cheese and thank me later.

    Bryan Viper · December 12, 2014
  • Michela G.

    Everything is good here. Get the Mac n cheese, brisket and ribs. This place doesn't disappoint.

    Michela Galante · November 16, 2014

    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.

    Jordan Martinez · November 11, 2014
  • Naomi P.

    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.

    Naomi Piercey · November 7, 2014

    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.

  • Simran J.

    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.

    Simran Jaising · August 22, 2013
  • The Corcoran Group

    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 Corcoran Group · July 17, 2013
  • Christopher P.

    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.

    Christopher Pepe · July 6, 2013
  • Will C.

    The veggie tacos are great. But don't get sucked in. You want 2 brisket tacos. They're too good to split up.

    Will Cole · April 13, 2013
  • Giovanni V.

    Try Fette Sau

    Giovanni Vocale · March 15, 2013

    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!

    Algernon B · January 29, 2013

    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
