    Ribs, FTW! Hella good collards, too. If you're staying, order the brisket, but 86 it if you're doing a takeout operation. Brisket doesn't travel well, no matter how you slice it.

    Decent BBQ with a fun vibe and lots of seating. Good for groups. Always get the pulled pork sandwich and brisket. Ask for extra sauce. Sides are the real stars: collards, cornbread, mac and cheese.

    We had a casual group dinner here and it was awesome. We organized a full weakened of events in NYC for our wedding and this was by far te chillest and easiest place to work with. Lots of fun!!!!

    Absolutely obsessed with Mable’s! I’m here at least once a week. The place is empty for lunch during the week, great spot for kids too. The most delicious & authentic BBQ I’ve had in a while.

    I am blown away by the consistent amazingness of this restaurant. Pulled pork, ribs, brisket, mac n cheese, candied yams are all tied for first. And don't forget the peanut butter pie!

    The veggie sloppy Joes are seriously awesome! Mac and cheese was also delicious! My husband raved about the brisket too--said it's some of the best he's found since leaving the south. Check it out!

    Start your happy hour with a can of beer and a shot for $4! Then move on to the main course of a platter of beef brisket with potato salad and borracho beans.

    We can't get enough of the pulled pork and cozy atmosphere at this Williamsburg eatery, and the sides are standouts, too (hello, house-pickled beets). Read more

    I love a good solid bbq joint. Fast friendly service. brisket was great as was the pulled pork. My favorite side was mac and cheese. Sweet tea also on point.

    Barbecue for brunch? You bet. The Huevos Rancheros with pulled pork is killer, but don't sleep on the decadent mac & cheese either.

    Best bbq! Must Get: brisket, ribs, bbq beans, yams, and frito pie. Can do without: mac and cheese, pulled pork, sausage, and long waits

    The ribs are tender but not as flavorful as one would hope. Get the brisket and BBQ baked beans!

    Relies exclusively on Oklahoma-style barbecue recipes from the co-owner's grandmother Mable. Try the brisket ($14.95 for a platter with sides) — it’s served naked with a zingy sauce on the side. Read more

    The ribs were other-worldly. Perfectly caramelized bark and fall off the bone tender inside. Get the full rack with a side of mac and cheese

    Pulled pork was a little dry/bland but the sauce on the table saved it! Side of the caramelized sweet potato is a MUST, I wanted to lick the plate!

    Not as good as Fette Sau but they have good pulled pork and brisket! Their brunch menu is small but very delicious!

    OMG, loved the brisket sandwich and Lottie and Jason shared a huge combo platter that was really delicious. It's fun sitting next to other people at the long tables

    Def a good meal for $11! Brisket was amazing!!!!! Beans, mac and cheese, coleslaw were amazing!!! I just wish the cornbread was a bit sweeter #noms

    Try the lush beef brisket, which spends up to 14 hours in the smoker before it hits the table; leaner cuts are sliced for platters ($15), while the fattier meat gets chopped up for sandwiches ($10). Read more

    A bit off the beaten path but worth it. Great pulled pork,Mac n cheese and by far the best collards ever tasted. Pass on the corn bread.

    Amazing bbq! The three meat three side platter is definitely worth it if you're looking to split with friends or eat it on your own!

    Assemble a group of friends and squeeze into one of the communal dining tables in the cavernous joint, or belly up to the prodigious bar, well-stocked with bourbon and (natch) Lone Star beer.

    The best BBQ in NYC period end of story. Pulled pork, collards with hot sauce and Mac and cheese. Wash it down with a pickle back!

    The St. Louis ribs are the way to go here: tender, fall-off-the-bone sweet meatness. Skip the mac and cheese and go for the baked beans.

    Ribs and Brisket are excellent. Toast could be buttered and toasted as in Texas Toast, but this place is the best BBQ in Brooklyn. Contest is closed.

    Brisket Sandwich: Made with the fatty end of the brisket. Served on a hamburger bun, the brisket was tender, moist, and smoky, although it could have done without the ubiquitous sweet sauce. Read more

    The brisket sandwich was amazing, it was tender, sweet and juicy. And the ribs fell right off the bone. Highly recommend this place

    Prime location next to Whiskey Brooklyn. Would give it a B+ for BBQ, but still behind Fette Sau and Mighty Quinns. Bigger and better beers though.

    Not our favorite barbecue in the neighborhood, but mostly solid; sandwiches like the chopped brisket are tasty highlights.

    St. Louis ribs are amazing, also candied yams rock and super nice bartender serves spiked cherry limeade that tastes like sonic's

    The Juicy Brisket, Salsa-y Borracho Beans, Crisp Slaw, and Bacon infused greens are what set this BBQ joint apart from its (not insignificant) competition.

    Order from here when you're at Brooklyn Brewery's happy hour (it's right next door). A platter with three meats feeds two people well. Everything is excellent except the cornbread.

    Brisket and ribs are stellar. Try to get a combo and share with the group rather than get individuals.

    I went here on a food tour and got to try the rib, brisket, and pulled pork. All were delicious, but unfortunately they gave both my friend and I food poisoning.

    Great brisket and pulled pork. It's kinda loud in there and has a cafeteria feel but the food is worth it.
