    Everything was quite delicious, but RIBS are the shining star of the meats. Bringpatience with you--the seating situation is a free for all. Sides: Broccoli salad is a go+tasty pickles. Will return

    The patio is the perfect place to enjoy some barbecue and craft beer on a warm afternoon. The meat is a bit spicy, but that's a good thing in my book.

    Genuinely incredible BBQ in NY. Not to be confused with "good BBQ FOR NY" - it's actually amazing. Pulled pork is a staple and their specials and ribs are always outstanding. Get a beer while in line

    1. Wait in line while drinking spiked sweet tea. 2. Order brisket and burnt-ends baked beans. 3. Douse everything in spicy mustard sauce. 4. Happily roll yourself home. Read more

    Infatuation: "...pretty much always have brisket & pork ribs. Order both & ask for a lean cut of brisket, which crumbles as you cut into it, as well as plenty of sides, like burnt end baked beans."

    Beautiful location, awesome food (ask for a mixed plate) and friendly staff which would not loose their coolness if they would give their customers a smile from time to time! :)

    One of the best places I found for eating BBQ. It's my favorite along with Mighty Quinns. Only downside is that you need to wait in line and then find a seat so it's annoying for big groups.

    Great bbq, of course. Great variety of fresh draft beers - very nice and friendly stuff. Always a must when in NYC. Biggest surprise (recommended): the cider

    Kind of a “best of” bbq style. Delicious. My brisket had a few nice crispy bits in it. Ribs don’t need it at all, but there are at least 3 sauces to choose from on the tables.

    Smoky as a brush fire on the prairie. The boutique meat selection is quirky and variable. Sides like potato salad and crunchy pickles are better than even Texas barbecues. Read more

    I love you. Amazing juicy BBQ. Great sauces. Usually come with a friend and get at least a half pound of each thing. Without a doubt my favorite place in NYC. Get there early, lines are standard.

    Order 1/2 pound per person and you can get 1/4 pound of different meats to sample a few items. The beans and the broccoli salad are awesome!! All meats are fantastic!!

    Come hungry. Meat by the pound American BBQ at it's best. Vegetarians steer clear. Communal seating here so get one of your party to secure a spot while someone else goes up and orders.

    It’s a former ironworker’s shop, refitted with long picnic tables, giant smokers, and a bourbon bar. And it serves some of the best BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon. Read more

    Averaging $25/pd, a perfect bbq meat that will bring you in heaven. The pork belly is highly suggested. Also good beers on tap. A must for meat lovers.

    Meats are priced by the half pound. Get the beef brisket, pork ribs, pulled pork shoulder, pork belly, pork pastrami loin & pork spicy sausage - get all the meats!

    Half a pound of brisket, half a pound pulled pork, sausage and BBQ beans + potato salad - enough for 3 of us to share but could've eaten twice as much. Soooo tasty.

    Brisket w/ a side of baked beans and cornbread 10/10. Grab some beer, from 1/2 pint to gallon, at the bar to wash it all down.

    An ever-popular neighborhood spot with plenty of good beer to go along with the 'cue. The specials cuts, like pork cheeks and lamb belly, are by far the best.

    Send someone to order drinks from the bar while you wait in line-it gets long. Everything is good (for meat lovers) except for the brisket. Brisket is tough to get right in large quantities-imo. GF!

    As legit a cocktail bar as hip mess hall. Grab a muddled bourbon cocktail while you wait to weigh-to-pay your portions of pork (belly, shoulder, cheeks), Wagyu beef, and broccoli salad.

    One of the best BBQ spots in NYC, although I once got a lot of really fatty meat. Best to point to the server which cuts you're looking for in the meat you want.

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO for two people get 1/2 lb ribs, 1/4 pork belly (my fav!), and 1/4 pulled pork. Broccoli side is very spicy but the pickles are great for cleansing the palate.

    Ribs, Brisket were on point! Bourbon Mule (Bar) was fantastic! Get there around 7 for little to no wait! Don't forget desert and plan on eating too much food :) All major CC accepted!

    short rubs are by far the best, pork belly is also good, take the german salad and some beans. Sausages are not so high quality compares with the rest, a meal around 30$ and beer 7$

    The pulled pork and pork belly are delicious! The brisket is not as tender and savory as it should be. The beans are ok. Go with a group and share a large tray of food.
  • Raphael L.heart icon on user image
    Still got it. Even after years, the brisket is great and the ribs fall off the bone. If you're in the mood for bbq, it's pretty much exactly the right place.

    Very decent BBQ — 1/4 brisket, 1/4 pulled pork, 1 sausage and BBQ beans. Service from the bar was wrong side of the bed territory.

    This is one of the few places around that is worth the wait. As usual, the people who come here aren't the greatest, but just grab a whiskey and you'll be fine.

    A word of warning: it's very easy to spend a fortune here if you don't understand how big the portions are. Also they'll serve you before there is anywhere to sit... Great food though

    Brisket, pork, sausage, beans, sauerkraut, mac and cheese, GET IT ALL and make amazing little sandwiches with your potato rolls. Oh! and try all the different bbq sauces, they're all awesome.

    Baked beans here are phenomenal: they've got bits of pork shoulder, bacon, and beef cooked with the beans in a tangy, splashy sauce that pairs well with your BBQ main.

    If you can't go to Delaneys Briskettown, this place does great brisket too. Pork belly, bacon, and those beans are also great. Ribs and pulled pork are fine.

    Excellent BBQ. Prepare to wait in line for a while of you get there during peak hours. Go to the bar, grab a drink and wait in line. It's worth it.

    As far as bbq joints go, fette sau's does the job but it's far from great. The meats can get dried out from sitting in their case and the sauces are ok. I like more tang. Def check out Mighty Quinn's

    Order a pound of a brisket and dine cafeteria style with your carnivorous friends. The baked beans are a little too sweet for my liking.

    I'm a skeptic on BBQ above the MaseDix, but this place has good smoke. Brisket and sausage are delish, nice to go in the summer and sit outside.

    Some of the best BBQ in New York and one of our favorite places grab a bite before hitting a show at the Knitting Factory. Just make sure to get there early because there is always a line.
