    Cool spot for some BBQ. Atmosphere is pretty fun. Food portions are very large so expect to take some home with you. A little out of the way if you're coming from Manhattan.

    Jerk ribs and the cornbread are really good. Also there hot wings

    Stick with the Korean ribs and Vietnamese wings. Mac n cheese is pretty good too. Skip the Pastrami bacon and beans.

    Food is excellent, however for the trip to get there, waiting in line for ages it's overrated. There are Quality BBQ closer where you don't need to wait an hour just to order. Try the Pastrami bacon
  • Jamie D.
    Great BBQ lived up to the hype be prepared to wait in line for a while! Highly recommend the brisket.
  • Alex P.
    On a national scale, 8/10. All meats done well - texture, bark, smokiness, etc. Complaint = sauces. All too sweet. No proper vinegar option. Sauce dep't reminds of American Chinese food at times.
  • Paul M.
    Brisket Sandwich is great!
  • Chelsea B.
    #dubiDO #FabuLIST I love pulled pork but the lamb belly is to die for. Between the sticky ribs and Vietnamese wings -- go for the wings. Coleslaw is delicious. Live music on the weekends too!
  • John P.
    The best bbq in the city. Get the brisket or the beef rib.
  • Ryan E.

    The bbq here is absolutely delicious. My favorite is the beef rib
  • William H.
    The beef rib. The. Beef. RIB. Poets have spent their lives seeking muses which pale in comparison. Wars have been fought for less. Bike rides to Red Hook have been organized for a mere morsel of rib.
  • Ben G.
    Great pulled pork, great brisket, big open space and nice sauces to boot.
  • Mary J.
    Could not believe the line and crowd out the door down the street.Will return another day for beef ribs! Didn't want to wait today!
  • Adrian P.
    You must try the brisket. It's sensational. As a side I'd highly recommend the beans (with chunks of burnt pork tips), the pickles and the amazing corn bread (it's for honey on it).

    Across the board, the best ’cue in NYC. Whether you go with Texas-style brisket, Vietnamese hot wings or pastrami bacon (yep), you can’t go wrong. Read more
  • Lee S.
    Everything here is amazing and the dudes that run the food counter are awesome. Jerk Ribs are worth a look and the brisket is aces.
  • Kirk E.
    Brisket was great, but not as smokey as expected. Amazed by Korean Sticky Wings (you must try). Mac n Cheese another winner as was the Hometown Slaw (was there fresh horseradish in there?).

    The line can be intimidating, but grab a drink (or 2) from the bar and stick it out. The brisket is worth the wait

    It's just not worth standing in line 50 minutes for this barbecue. They should be able to whip through the line in a quarter of that time.
  • Greg D.
    Best BBQ in NYC. Yes I understand the weight of this statement.
  • Norton W.
    The pastrami bacon is life changing.
  • Colin M. F.
    There is no doubt that this is the best BBQ in the entire city. It even smells right. If you buy a t-shirt you'll smell like a wood fire for a week.

    Thick slab bacon was the best bacon I've ever had in LIFE. Lamb belly and brisket were also top notch. Cornbread was killer. Jerk baby back ribs were good too.
  • Russell H.
    Everything was good, nothing was wow. Spare ribs ok, brisket good, lamb belly unique. Collard greens and mac nice. The little service they offer was complete crap. Dont go out of your way.

    Brisket is juicy, but could be more flavorful. Jerk baby back ribs didn't live up to hype. Collards not as good as last time. Mac & Cheese wasn't bad - the rotel is a novel addition.
  • Dolores L.
    Dolores LoudermilkNovember 28, 2016
    Meat in the pulled pork was high quality. Sauce was not as good as what you would find at any old place in the Carolinas. It was almost greasy or buttery? For $12, a sandwich should come with a side!

    Brisket: a bit dry. Burnt Ends: moist! Lamb Belly: tasted like beef. Pastrami Bacon: yum! Vietnamese Wings: delicious! Jamaican Jerk Baby Back Ribs: lacking flavor. Mac & Cheese: creamy. Slaw: plain.

    Brooklyn bbq joints are highly overrated, but not this place. Their beef rib, which came out of a dinosaur, is delicious. Debating pork belly or pulled pork? Pulled pork is the better option. Enjoy

    Brisket is super moist inside and so are the ribs. They use only salt and pepper for their burnt ends so don't expect flavor from it. Super savory sauce, they even got a hot one that gives a good kick

    Highlight was the sriracha wings but 22 mins to come out of the kitchen? Brisket was heavily peppered as was the potato salad. 3 ppl, $70 for lunch & a 45 min wait, rather trek to W'burg for Fette Sau
