    Huge portions. Omg the portions are massive. Did I mention the portions are really big? Also get the biscuits.

    If you're feeling like diving into plates of swine, come out to this festival for bacon eating contests and much more. Not to mention the never ending supply of Bourbon and Craft Beer. Read more

    Beef brisket is dry and tasteless... Bbq sauce is just okay. Place in general is just okay. I would not go there for good bbq.

    First time having BBQ food in the USA and it was great! I feel like I shouldn't eat again for a week, but regret nothing. Pulled pork was really good, as was the Mac and Cheese 😋

    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!!

    Beer&jalapeno poppers couple ever..

    The plates are big enough to share. The waiter will tell you that they're not, but they totally are.

  • Ricky S.

    It's a little over priced for what you get. The Chicken Fried Steak was okay & the side dishes were iffy.

    Amazing BBQ food - really is close to what we found in Nashville and Memphis! Friendly staff too

  • Rory P.

    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

    Authentic BBQ but the portions are too big! Ordered 3 starters for 3 people and there was enough food to feed 10! Really nice food though :-)

    The Memphis ribs are out of this world!!! Do not put extra barbecue on them! And the cornbread is amazing as well.

    Holly Smith · December 19, 2014
  • Kelsey W.

    Favorites include the nachos, hush puppies, and chicken wings! Frozen mojitos were also a hit👌. Servers and manager were incredibly friendly; huge fan, went twice in one day!

    The best plate is their brisket. And I love their Maple Butter abd Biscuits. I pick only biscuits for my sides!

  • Deon D.

    The brisket and 1/4 BBQ chicken combo is an excellent choice. The ribs are great too. My plus one and I had the hush puppies with maple butter and the wings for starters. Try the honey lemonade.

    Deon D · August 31, 2014
  • Greg0ry T.

    The grits and mac and cheese rock. I get one of these sides every time I go!

  • What's Good Here

    Not the best, but you can get very good authentic BBQ at this Times Square institution. Get reservations to avoid the wait.

    This is the place to go if you want comfort food or Southern classics like hush puppies alongside your Memphis-style (dry rubbed and hickory smoked) ribs. Read more

    $3.75 for any non-alcoholic drink that comes from a tap?! $3.75 for a single glass of seltzer!!!

    Whamba ngPow · May 21, 2014
  • Jassonn W.

    Get the platter with the tri tip, the ribs, all the meats and just enjoy. Good flavors with or without sauce. The hushpuppies are awesome.

    Jassonn Williams · May 19, 2014
  • Paige C.

    Their side dishes were better than the meat itself, but overall it was a very good meal. Recommendation: get the mac and cheese!

    Paige C · May 11, 2014
  • Alston G.

    Delicious food

    Alston Green · May 11, 2014
  • Ilias K.

    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!
