    Everything is good, but especially the brisket. If you get the pulled pork, get the sour pickles to go with.

    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

    This place is amazing. Still will do dinosaur for wings and ribs but hometown kills it KILLS it on brisket. Maybe better than mighty Quinn's.

    Get 1 lb of brisket, half a rack of jerked baby backs, the pork belly tacos, baked beans, and Sriracha wings. Hang with the most soulful people in all near and far boroughs, and forget you're in NY!

    The beef rib is like a prehistoric dinosaur bone dripping with juicy goodness. Great char on the outside. The coleslaw made a perfect combo. Totally worth the line!

    Oh man, Fette Sau has some competition. Brisket Sandwich was awesome, tons of nice crunchy outer bits with tasty brisket. Pulled pork was also a standout. Basically, come here.

    Order the beef ribs. They are massive—extremely rich, pleasingly salty meat under a black cloak of pepper. Right down to the bone, the flavors of smoke are sweet and lush and long. Read more

    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
