    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.

    Delaney offers 2 or 3 smoked proteins each night starting at 6:30 p.m. until he sells out. This could mean anything from beef short ribs, pork ribs and of course Delaney's signature beef brisket. Read more

    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

  • First We Feast

    You won't find any barbecue sauce here (the meat doesn't need it, anyway), but you will receive ample slices of white bread, refreshing red onion slices, and housemade pickles with your order. Read more

    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.

    ECava · July 5, 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.

    Dan Delaney is one of the most buzzed about pit masters in town. His incredibly popular Brisketlab series sold 2,500 pounds of meat in 48 hours, so clearly the man knows what he's doing. Read more

  • New York Post

    Sauceless beef with a simple salt-and-pepper rub. Brisket ($25 per pound) is the star of the show but side dishes — collard greens ($4), Texas-style beans ($5) — also do the Lone Star State justice. Read more

  • Tolgar C.

    My favorite BBQ place in the city! Even though I generally like lean, the fatty brisket is the way to go. Ribs, sides, it's all delicious. Friendly staff, too. Come here early so it's not too crowded.

    Tolgar Canli · December 14, 2013
  • Beril E.

    A great spot for meat-lovers! The brisket and pork ribs were both deliciously seasoned. The Texas original shiner ruby redbird was an interesting choice for those who like fruity, flavored beers.

    Beril Esen · April 11, 2015
  • Eater

    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]

    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

    Janelle Grace · March 19, 2015
  • Home Sweet Beer

    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!

    Decent enough BBQ meat. Go for the platter ($20/pax) to try a bit of everything. Like the ribs best. Think the brisket should taste better whole than shredded.

    Ting · July 27, 2015
  • Umair Z.

    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.

    Umair Zia · June 16, 2014
  • Dawn S.

    Amazing salty & really crushed black peppery BRISKET & even more flavorful COLLARDS & Beans - oh, the beans you could tell were made fresh..... The corn bread tasted like the most delectable CAKE too.

    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.

    It's hard to believe but as a former Austin resident, I have to say Dan Delaney really did bring Central Texas BBQ to Brooklyn. The brisket, pulled pork, and cornbread are all amazing.

    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

  • Evan

    No sauce on this brisket, but it's sliced to order so it's not missed. I'm partial to the vinegary greens and all you can eat pickles, too. Walk across the bridge and treat yo'self.

    Evan · June 11, 2013
  • Paul S.

    Get a half a pound of brisket each. No sides. Then the pickles , hot sauce and the bread come with it free. make your own sandwiches. $ 12.50 each for a awesome satisfying meal.

    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.

    Sorry to say this as I was a very early supporter back when it was BrisketLab, but this place has gone downhill. Last 2 times I was here, the meat was bland and dry. And they don't serve bbq sauce.

    For Delaney, and us, brisket’s the thing, preferably fatty (although, as with Katz’s pastrami, lean is an option), sauceless, and sided with no more than pickles and white bread.

    Jeffrey · August 31, 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
  • Nora A.

    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.

    Nora Abousteit · November 16, 2012
  • Mike S. suggests the lunch-only brisket sandwich: A few big slices of his slightly rich, mildly spiced brisket are piled on a soft Martin's potato roll, with chopped onions.

    Mike Strocko · March 18, 2013
  • David Z.

    The best brisket in the city, bar none. I normally like my BBQ sauce but the seasoning is perfectly smokey, and all you need are some of those pickles on the side.

    David Zhang · September 21, 2014

    Surprisingly good BBQ joint for Brooklyn. The brisket wasn't bad but not on par with places in TX, but the pork ribs were delectable and the chilli was absolutely amazing!

    Paddy · January 1, 2014
  • laura b.

    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.

    laura bonetti · December 7, 2012
  • Peter G.

    Stick to the fatty brisket. On both if my visits, the lean brisket turned dryish before we'd eaten it all. Love this place though. Great addition to the BBQ scene.

    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!

    New York Magazine Cheap Eats issue recommends beef ribs ($18 a pound). All the "beef comes from sustainable purveyors like Niman Ranch and Meyer Natural Angus."

    Chelsea · July 11, 2013
  • Jessica B.

    Brisket is a must. The collard greens were super good as well. We split brisket, pulled pork, collards and potato salad between 3 peeps and it was 👌🏼

    Jessica Bishop · July 25, 2015
  • J R.

    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.

    J Ro · January 21, 2013
  • Thiago N.

    Absolutelly amazing brisket! Pulled porked was also to be mentioned. Will come back pretty soon for the pork ribs.

    Thiago Noronha · June 18, 2014
  • 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

    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

    Fantastic BBQ. Mac and Cheese side dish a big hit. Tip: free meat here on your bday. More intimate inside here than you'd expect.

    Edward Sebor · October 12, 2015
  • Damian B.

    The brisket is outstanding. Order multiple pounds of it along with the collard greens. Wash it down with an ice cold Lone Star 👌🏻

    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
  • Francesca C.

    Briskeeeeet!!! Best ever!! Cornbread with butter whipped with honey is so delicious! Collards are amazing. And staff is supernice too!

    Genuine competition for Fette Sau, my go to so far. Had the brisket and the pork ribs and they were phenomenal. Definitely come.

    Everyone raves about the brisket but the turkey deserves some love too. So flavourful and juicy! 🍗🍗

    Eleni Sardi · October 19, 2014

    The brisket is phenomenal. Pulled pork and pork ribs also pretty good. The pickles they serve with the sampler were awesome, too.

    Ari F · June 22, 2014
  • Elizabeth W.

    The meat sampler is not TOO much meat but you get a little bit of everything. Don't forget the Mac N Cheese and coleslaw, too!

    Elizabeth Wood · August 30, 2014
  • Matthew C.

    Stick to the brisket and stay away from the fried chicken, which is still in beta. Save room for dessert. They have great pies.

    Matthew Caldecutt · July 5, 2015
  • Sean L.

    The brisket is as good as you'd hope from the name. So good that you don't need sauce! The mac n cheese is also stellar.

    Sean Ludwig · April 19, 2015
  • Francois C.

    The meats here are incredible. However, be warned, there is no barbecue sauce here. I will be bringing my own sauce next time.
