    Get the burnt ends when they have them. You won't be disappointed.

    Byron Ward · September 16, 2012

    Ask what their "special burger" is if you find yourself here on a Monday night. (off-menu burger that changes weekly; some pretty inspired creations!)

    Skip the pulled pork & brisket--both dry & have no smoked flavor at all. The pastrami has good flavor but is tough and chewy--Katz's or Carnegie do way better. The Ribs & Burnt Ends r where its at!

    Ribs are excellent, burnt ends are excellent. They do it right. Second fave after Fette Sau.

    Bad service. Don't order the bacon steak appetizer; it's just one thick sliced piece of bacon for $7.

    Mimi Flynn · February 4, 2012
  • Ben L.

    Chili Cheese fries are incredible.

  • Rev C.

    Burgers are served on Monday nights only starting at 6 pm. Each week there is a different special. Tell 'em Burger Conquest sent you.

    Burnt Ends and Deep Fried Oreos! Do it!!

    Gansevoort Hotel Group · October 19, 2011
  • John S.

    Oh, and they don't add sauce to the bread prior, which makes it taste dry.

    John Seaborne · September 21, 2011
  • John S.

    Good if you're from a state whose BBQ is pork-centric. Bread choices are awkward! Rye? With Pork BBQ? Enough said! They need Poppyseed long bun, none of this East Coast crap bread!

    John Seaborne · September 21, 2011
  • Johnny R.

    This is the most unorganized place ive ever been to. The wait staff completely ignore you until you get up to leave then they chase you out and offer nothing but excuses. Stay away!

    Johnny Rentas · September 17, 2011
  • Janet L.

    Sat here for 10 minutes after seated, server never came! Use to be my favorite BBQ place, not anymore! Service has gone to shit!!

    Janet Lee · September 17, 2011
  • Byron W.

    Get the BBQ Turkey sandwich with onion rings. Definite winner.

    Byron Ward · August 25, 2011
  • LocationStar

    definitely take advantage of the free draft special. nothing like a turbo dog to wash down a pulled pork sandwich.

    LocationStar · August 18, 2011
  • J L.

    Burnt Ends a must if they r available.

    Awesome pulled pork! Plus a free beer upon check in. Try the hot sauce, it's not to hot.

    Sean McQuaide · August 2, 2011

    Danielle Rotonda · July 13, 2011

    Best pulled pork in NYC! Go north Carolina style and only add the spicy vinegar sauce! Amazing!!

    Get to Rub on a Monday between 6 & 9pm and grab the Rub Burger or their daily special burger. Always unique and tasty!

    The bar's happy hour ends at 6, so don't plan to get happy hour after work... (if you work till 6 or later)
