Fast Food Restaurant · Coney Island · 6 tips and reviews

Chris C.Chris Cookson: It might look like a McDonald's from the 1960's on the outside but on the inside it is completely modern and recently renovated with LCD screens and clean tables and stuff. It's accidentally vintage.

BBQ Joint · Red Hook · 348 tips and reviews

Chris C.Chris Cookson: Probably the best barbeque you are going to find in the New York City area without having to step outside the subway boundaries. You can skip the sides, the best thing by far is the ribs.
