    Baby back ribs are great! One rack is enough for two people. Order two sides: french fries and blue cheese with bacon dip sauce and it will be perfect!

    Reputation was that this was going to be king of NY BBQs. Not even close. Flavors are good, but brisket was dried out. Only sauce is sweet/molassessy. It's an alright place but nowhere near the top.

    Best Mac & Cheese. Pulled Pork & Brisket. Burgers. Deviled Eggs. Great beer selection.

    Blue Smoke's baby back ribs are comparable to those you would get at Apple Bees; only difference being that they only give you a quarter rack.

    You can take your time here and enjoy a tasty meal. Plenty of space (stroller-friendly) and great service.

    Pulled pork, shrimp corn dogs, deviled eggs and the burgers. I can't wait to go back to try the ribs.

    Sure, it's turning into a chain cm. but Danny Meyer is a pioneer when it comes to service-oriented excellence.

    You don't want the pulled pork. You want the brisket. Trust me. This is good brisket.

    Got a combo plate that happened to include smoked chicken, which I never would have ordered on its own. It was unbelievably good!

    For all my St. Louis people out in NYC, Blue Smoke is one of the few places you can get Fitz's Rootbeer and toasted Ravioli's. Fantastic.
