    As perfectly smoked as anything in the South. Try juicy brisket ($23) with steamed Chinese buns, or oddball items like lamb ribs with tofu yogurt ($14). + backyard pig roasts Sundays in the summer. Read more

    Join a rowdy crowd of off-shift restaurant folk at the downstairs bar for a cocktail or slide into tufted green banquettes upstairs and feast on plates of Ole Hickory smoked Asian-accented BBQ. Read more

    Delicious in every way, the chicken pao, bacon, eggplant (which is more ground meat than veggies), and maple pork shoulder. A bit overpriced but try to find specials on yelp or other apps

    The menu at the Williamsburg outpost reads like a "greatest hits" of Asian Fusion BBQ featuring dishes like pig's head with spring onion salad and beek brisket with rhubarb kimchee.

    The concept is simple but ingenious--quality meat smoked low and slow the Southern way, plus Southeast Asian ingredients like lemongrass, chilies, palm syrup, fish sauce, galangal, and so on. Read more

    A barbecue shop with a menu of beef, lamb & pork with the spices & tropical flavors of Southeast Asia. We recommend the American wagyu brisket with chili jam. For drinks, Dark & Stormy is a must.

    Brandt Beef brisket and Cabot clothbound Cheddar (both house-smoked) with pickled onions, aïoli, chile jam, and cilantro on toasted Parisi bread. (apparently best in the city...from grubstreet) Read more

    If your bartender is Ben, you're in good hands. Ask him to make a cocktail based on what ingredients you like. And eat everything. You're welcome.

    come with a big party, and literally order everything off the menu. the portions are a little small, but when shared family style, it makes a delicious meal. pork ribs stand out, as does the broccoli

    Get the Smoked Pork Shoulder Banh Mi – it’s only available on their Late Night Menu, so go after midnight, Thursday through Sunday!

    American Wagyu brisket - It came as beef two ways: the lean top half and the fatty bottom, the deckel, in chunks known to Kansas City barbecue afficionados as burnt ends. Read more

    Pullman toast served with a side of spreadable "master fat" is the thing to order at this hip Brooklyn BBQ joint. Wash it down with a cool Tecate topped with yuzu and chili lime.

    If you feel like a smokey, syrupy and delicious brunch. Get there as early as you can stomach hard liquor, get a fatty manhattan and the flapjacks. It's devastating.

    Truth is. You don't really want to share the delicious pork spare ribs. You think you're all nice and sh*t, but really, you're not. You're greedy, just like everyone else with the chili oil running do

    Crab Laksa, Brisket, all killer. Panchito special all night long. You really can't go wrong with anything. Re: Mackerel - I was told that all the bones can be given to chef to be fried! prob solved

    Serious smoky barbecue meets southeast Asian flavors here, with a snack-heavy menu that facilitates the restaurant's cocktails.

    Imagine a restaurant that gives you their own designed chocolate bar at the end of a meal in which 90% of the Asian / American dishes contain one or more smoked ingredients.... including the drinks. I Read more

    Try the 'Cue Coriander Bacon-bacon tendered in thick swatches, served with plain white bread toasts and a taxicab-yellow curried custard that you'll never quite figure out what to do with. Delicious!

    The meat's the thing, but we also love the drinks here. Try the 'Cue, a super-refreshing blend of rum, smoked pineapple, lime juice, yuzu juice, Tabasco,and Pernod. Read more

    Here for their heralded post-midnight sandwich menu? Well too bad, they stopped serving it. Split the Brisket & Bao with a friend and try not to make the bun soggy with your tears.

    High end meats done up with Asian flavors. With whatever else you order, get the Beef Brisket in Bao with the works and the Heritage Park ribs.

    Fatty crab is def better.... Cue has a cute cozy ambiance and the food is def simple... Bowl of noodles is simply ramen noodles with some tasty sauces added... Better to go and just have a drink.

    Southern BBQ meets Southeastern Asia. Hard to go wrong with most of the menu, make sure you grab a tecate with the yuzu and chili-salt.

    Sit at the bar and watch Ben work his magic. If you charm him, he'll whip out the Taiwanese.

    It's true that it's overpriced for the portions, but it's SO DAMN GOOD that I couldn't complain that much.We shared the lamb ribs, noodles, and brisket. They were all so yummy!

    Come hungry. Sit down, look at the menu, salivate, then ask to have the chef "take care of you". Just blindly go with it. You will be rewarded greatly...

    Meat is fantastic, but don't neglect the sides: esp celery salad, brocolli salad, curried black-eyed peas & bowl of noodles
