    Best TX style BBQ I've had in NYC. And great atmosphere.

    Hometown has recently earned a reputation for being the best BBQ in the city, and it is pretty immediately obvious why. It is incredibly authentic to Texas BBQ standards, particularly Austin

    If you're trying for the BANG BANG w/ Brooklyn Crab don't load up too much on BBQ :)

    Great brisket. Good spare ribs. Skip the sausage. If you like queso definitely get the Mac and cheese.

    Went there on the Sat evening b4 Thanksgiving. Got there about 9:30 They were out of abt 80% of their entrees! Say what? The only saving grace was the bar tender buying us a round of drinks

    The ribs are amazing! If they're out of the normal buns skip he sandwich and just get the meat.

    The lamb Bahn mi is amazing, worth the trip. The brisket was good w sauce but I like Fette Sau's better. Wings are great too.

    Leah Hammerschlag · October 21, 2015

    Juicy, glistening pulled pork with a spicy kick. Perfect, I mean PERFECT collard greens. You're missing out if you don't come get this right now.

    Nicholas Doyle · October 16, 2015

    The Sriracha wings and beef rib are great. Also, one of the best mac n cheese.

    Get here early because they might run out of your favorite cut. Or don't, so there's more for me.

    Pork spare ribs are excellent, brisket good, mac & cheese amazing.

    Chris Rorie · September 26, 2015
  • Fodor's Travel

    Head for the counter to order meats by the pound, chicken, sandwiches, tacos, and sides. The beef rib, served on the bone, is a giant, Flintstones-style delight. Read more

    Fodor's Travel · September 9, 2015
  • Bin Y.

    Pastrami bacon, brisket, chicken, with sides of beans, collard greens, potato salad (the slightly tarty and refreshing type). Finish up with some incredibly sweet (ripe) banana pudding.

    Bin Yang · September 7, 2015
  • Viv

    Overrated - food was bland. Try Mighty Quinn's beef and short ribs instead

    Viv · September 6, 2015
  • Alyssa F.

    YES. Mac and cheese, brisket, and the tacos are so so so so good.

    Alyssa Foote · September 2, 2015
  • Daniel B.

    Menu sells out quickly. Not better than Hill Country but a great BBQ nonetheless.

    Beef ribs are consistently amazing

    Beef ribs are a must. Sriracha wings and mac and cheese are bomb as well.

    Emily Wilson · July 30, 2015
  • Saarim Z.

    Get the beef ribs, it's enough for two and feels so right.

    Saarim Zaman · July 30, 2015
  • Liz C.

    You can smell the smoked meats on the breeze as you approach. Really solid BBQ, sold by the pound on a tray. Rivals other favorite NYC BBQ joints like Fette Sau. Live music in the side bar.

    Liz Courtney · July 29, 2015
  • Kate Y.

    Try the brisket, pastrami bacon, and lamb belly. Get a side of whiskey pickles to cut the grease.

    Kate Yan · July 20, 2015
  • David B.

    Get the brisket, lamb belly, sticky ribs, collard greens, Mac and cheese, and beans.

    David Brahler · July 19, 2015
  • Chris C.

    Probably the best barbeque you are going to find in the New York City area without having to step outside the subway boundaries. You can skip the sides, the best thing by far is the ribs.

    Chris Cookson · July 16, 2015
  • Alex S.

    Super moist brisket, awesome beef rib and tasty sides. Great atmosphere for chilling with some 'cue and beer.

    Alex Still · July 8, 2015
  • Carey (The ACE) H.

    The beef brisket, pork and beans and potato salad are some of the best I've had.

    Carey (The ACE) Holness · July 2, 2015
  • Christina C.

    If you had only one item to get, the beef ribs are the best thing on the menu! Incredible.

    Christina Cipriano · June 26, 2015

    Order the brisket. The moonshine shots pack a bunch for $5.

    Amazing spot !!!!

    Malibu Destefano · June 18, 2015
  • Thomas M.

    Brisket was not as fatty as some other places, but the thick black crust was like no other place. Deserves it's spot as NYC's best brisket. Lamb belly was also good.

    Thomas Mo · June 14, 2015
  • Sabrina R.

    Line gets super long on a Friday night, but worth the wait. The beef rib and brisket are a must. And the beans with burnt ends were a winner.

    Sabrina Ryan · June 14, 2015

    Hands down the best BBQ in NYC. The spare ribs are out of this world.

    Shah · June 13, 2015
  • Eddie F.

    Pastrami is manna from heaven. DT Gill is a silver fox and a great bartender.

    Eddie Fitzgibbon · June 13, 2015
  • Noah W.

    Top 3 bbq in NYC worth the ResdHook trek. Brisket as good at Mighty Quinn's, and a unique lamb belly banh mi sandwich where the sweet and spicy sauce cut the lamb fat perfectly.

    Noah Weiss · June 7, 2015
  • Micke H.

    Best BBQ in NY

    Micke Håkansson · May 31, 2015
  • Brittany L.

    Beef rib, pulled pork, brisket. Skip the chicken and coleslaw. Mac n cheese is pretty good too. Don't take too long to order at the bar or else the bartender will get sassy

    Brittany Lannan · May 30, 2015
  • Barry H.

    If there's a special meat, GET IT!

    Barry Hott · May 27, 2015
  • Samantha T.

    Some of the best bbq I have ever had in NYC. Everything is delish but DO NOT miss: pulled pork, spare ribs, Mac & cheese, corn bread.

    Samantha Taube · May 25, 2015
  • harryh

    Get a beef rib for sure. Skip the brisket, as it's similar to the rib and go for something different like the amazing Sriracha wings. Be careful about over ordering.

    harryh · May 24, 2015
  • Alex R.

    Brisket was great. Beef rib great as well--one rib will feed one very hungry person or two normal people. Mac and cheese is OK but nothing to write home about.

    Alex Ravenel · May 24, 2015
  • Luke

    It's all about the brisket bb

    Luke · May 6, 2015
  • What's Good Here

    Start with the brisket or spare ribs, but be sure to get a side of Texas Style Queso Mac & Cheese. Very rich and creamy.
