    MEAT!!! This is the best BBQ I've had in the northeast. They rotate the types of meat you can choose frequently and everything is really tasty. Best BBQ spot in Brooklyn by far!

    Fette Sau serves spectacular smoked meats by the pound - pulled pork shoulder, loin chops and boneless beef ribs. The baked beans are pretty meaty themselves, so consider yourself forewarned. Read more

    Best BBQ in Williamsburg! Sit outside, don't miss the pulled pork and brisket. Amazing fresh, homemade pickles. Fun brunch option, good way to avoid the crowds.👌🏻

    As incredibly good as the real deal BBQ spots in Texas and I don't take that statement lightly. Don't miss the Beef Brisket, Sausage, and Beef Short Ribs. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Once a trendsetter, now a member of the Williamsburg establishment, Fette Sau serves up a rotating menu of pork and beef ribs that leads some to tag it as the best BBQ in NYC. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The lines get long, but's it's worth it. Divide and conquer is the best way to go: beer pitcher duty, table duty and brisket/pulled pork/ribs duty. Execute to perfection.

    Our pick for "Best BBQ" thanks to their delectable selection of smoked-on-site meats. The communal seating and patio space are the perfect setting for sharing some of their famous pork belly. Read more

    Everything was quite delicious, but RIBS are the shining star of the meats. Bringpatience with you--the seating situation is a free for all. Sides: Broccoli salad is a go+tasty pickles. Will return

    Beautiful location, awesome food (ask for a mixed plate) and friendly staff which would not loose their coolness if they would give their customers a smile from time to time! :)

    The patio is the perfect place to enjoy some barbecue and craft beer on a warm afternoon. The meat is a bit spicy, but that's a good thing in my book.

    Smoky as a brush fire on the prairie. The boutique meat selection is quirky and variable. Sides like potato salad and crunchy pickles are better than even Texas barbecues. Read more

    I love you. Amazing juicy BBQ. Great sauces. Usually come with a friend and get at least a half pound of each thing. Without a doubt my favorite place in NYC. Get there early, lines are standard.

    Get saucy at this festive, industrial-looking BBQ spot, housed in a former garage. Toast to your birth with beer by the gallon and whiskey by the Mason jar. Read more

    One of the best places I found for eating BBQ. It's my favorite along with Mighty Quinns. Only downside is that you need to wait in line and then find a seat so it's annoying for big groups.

    It’s a former ironworker’s shop, refitted with long picnic tables, giant smokers, and a bourbon bar. And it serves some of the best BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon. Read more

    An ever-popular neighborhood spot with plenty of good beer to go along with the 'cue. The specials cuts, like pork cheeks and lamb belly, are by far the best.

    Send someone to order drinks from the bar while you wait in line-it gets long. Everything is good (for meat lovers) except for the brisket. Brisket is tough to get right in large quantities-imo. GF!

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO for two people get 1/2 lb ribs, 1/4 pork belly (my fav!), and 1/4 pulled pork. Broccoli side is very spicy but the pickles are great for cleansing the palate.

    Averaging $25/pd, a perfect bbq meat that will bring you in heaven. The pork belly is highly suggested. Also good beers on tap. A must for meat lovers.

    As legit a cocktail bar as hip mess hall. Grab a muddled bourbon cocktail while you wait to weigh-to-pay your portions of pork (belly, shoulder, cheeks), Wagyu beef, and broccoli salad.

    Ribs, Brisket were on point! Bourbon Mule (Bar) was fantastic! Get there around 7 for little to no wait! Don't forget desert and plan on eating too much food :) All major CC accepted!

    short rubs are by far the best, pork belly is also good, take the german salad and some beans. Sausages are not so high quality compares with the rest, a meal around 30$ and beer 7$

    Outdoor seating in an alley, communal tables, beer in mason jars and can be ordered in half pint. Order the pork belly and thank me later!

    A former ironworker’s shop that serves some of the best BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon. Order the smoked prime rib medium rare and sit at a picnic table, take in the butchery charts and dig in.

    Order pastrami, brisket, wagyu beef cheeks, pork shoulder, pork belly & pork cheek! The meats are all tender & juicy & they have those needed smoke rings. Remember, it's by pound!

    Some of the best BBQ in New York and one of our favorite places grab a bite before hitting a show at the Knitting Factory. Just make sure to get there early because there is always a line.

    Expect to wait. Too close to the Bedford stop, so it gets the NJ tourists. But it's absolutely incredible BBQ--perhaps the best in the city--and has some great beers to wash it down.

    Need some BBQ, head over to Fette Sau. The menu varies daily and It's self serve Texas cafeteria style. We love the pulled pork, sausage and baked beans! They also have an amazing bourbon selection.

    Come hungry. Meat by the pound American BBQ at it's best. Vegetarians steer clear. Communal seating here so get one of your party to secure a spot while someone else goes up and orders.

    The pulled pork, sausage links, and baked beans are to die for. No line if you come on a rainy day, otherwise be prepared for it to wrap around to the sidewalk. Well worth it.

    Great atmosphere, great food. If you're in the mood for great BBQ, you cannot go wrong here. Bring a group of friends and order for sharing. It's all worth having. Our favorite: the pork belly.

    The pulled pork and pork belly are delicious! The brisket is not as tender and savory as it should be. The beans are ok. Go with a group and share a large tray of food.

    No question, it's the best barbecue in the city. The best part is the casual & playful atmosphere: beer served in mason jars, buffet style line-up & huge communal tables. Read more

    Slap your mama it's so good! Get the pork ribs, pork shoulder (no sauce, perfect smoky flavor), brisket, and burnt end baked beans with a beer to wash it down with.

    Great BBQ joint inside a garage. They have an amazing brisket. Try not to miss it while you're in Brooklyn.

    This is one of the few places around that is worth the wait. As usual, the people who come here aren't the greatest, but just grab a whiskey and you'll be fine.

    A word of warning: it's very easy to spend a fortune here if you don't understand how big the portions are. Also they'll serve you before there is anywhere to sit... Great food though

    If you can't go to Delaneys Briskettown, this place does great brisket too. Pork belly, bacon, and those beans are also great. Ribs and pulled pork are fine.
  • Raphael L.
    Still got it. Even after years, the brisket is great and the ribs fall off the bone. If you're in the mood for bbq, it's pretty much exactly the right place.

    Order a pound of a brisket and dine cafeteria style with your carnivorous friends. The baked beans are a little too sweet for my liking.

    The smell alone is intoxicating, but the meat is divine. Pulled pork, sausage, and brisket are my favorites. Until Fette Sau, I never knew that I could crave and lust over baked beans.

    if you are lucky enough to visit while they have beef cheeks on the menu, do not hold back. they are perhaps the best meat they have: crunchy chewy on the outside, tender on the inside, super flavor!
