    Avoid the pre-theatre rush. Your server is more than likely also an actor:) @nicolerovig

    Brisket, Pulled Pork and ribs were very good. Get the Pig Out for two and try all of them.

    Great BBQ. The sign of a great BBQ joint is if they can make a great brisket without it being dry. I had a brisket sandwich which was fabulous
  • Panagiota K.
    Fast service and good sized portions - we shared the combo sharer and it was good with texas beef being the best amongst ribs and pulled chicken that we ordered.
  • Marisol C.
    Love the service!

    The Trainwreck fries are my favorite way to get fat. Make sure you find someone to split this delightful work of art with.

    Trainwreck Fries are a must. I got pick three with Memphis Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Brisket and all three r great. BBQ Nachos not that good b/c wasnt much beef in them. Appetizer portions are too big.

    There aren't many great restaurants at times square, but the BBQ here is solid. Far better than Dallas BBQ in the area. Ribs and brisket were tender. Service was fast. Food a little pricey.

    I'll recommend you to get Trainwreck Fries but make sure you are hungry. It's writing below the starters but it is not a starter, it's a huge and delicious dish!!

    Much better BBQ than you would expect for times square. If there are 2 of you, get two combos to share - brisket, pulled chicken pulled pork and the trash ribs. You won't leave hungry

    Brisket came out cold. Sent back and they microwaved the entire plate, even biscuit. Even funnier the guy tried to be smart and tell me that's how brisket is. Not in Texas buddy!

    Don't go there when it's crowded, you'll feel like cattle being forced fed and "kindly" hurried to finish your plate so that other cattle can take your place in the stable.

    I took the advice of trip advisor reviews and didn't order an entree by myself. I got the trash rubs appetizer and it was a perfect size. Good happy hour deals too.
