We were on a very tight schedule to get to a play on time. Our friends, NYC residents took us here.The restaurant is huge and obviously caters to tourist. Very loud and tables close together. Reminded me of a large buffet style restaurant without the buffet. Prices are reasonable for the area. The food was your typical average barbecue. The... More

Good Food and reasonably priced - for Time Square area. Ground floor level - it appears to be a small place. But upstairs the restaurant covers half the block. Might be a line, but they turn people over very quickly and good quality food. Try the ribs or the (hugh) chicken wings as well as their margaritas. Mouth watering already.

We were looking for a sit down reasonable place. We were staying at the Hilton right across the street and kept seeing the lines out the door for this place. We went our first night, but the line and wait was ridiculously long. I checked out the menu and it was reasonable for NYC. We went the next day and... More

The food was really good, and they have a big variety to chose from too, and the same goes with the drinks, they were really good and they have a great variety. The price range is not bad either considering the quality... and you can tell by the amounts of people eating there, which yeah, by the way, it is... More

I'm not a restaurant snob. I've been in high end to fast food and understand the different. This place has an identity crisis. First it is huge open space. Tables in ever open available space and mostly filled during the afternoon. The staff use walkie talkie type radios to talk to each other. This creates a constant chatter of open... More

My boyfriend and I went there for dinner. Even though it was busy, we were seated quickly. The drinks were great, but I'm sorry that I can't say the same for the food. My chicken was undercooked and when I spoke to the manager about it, he wanted to have the chicken cooked again (the same piece), instead of offering... More

This place is nothing special. It's more of a tourist wish I hadn't done it thing. While the food portions provided were good compared to the price; we found the serving staff to be rude and non-attentive to their paying guests. I don't think our server even looked at us once while taking our order. SERIOUSLY! If you're looking for... More

It really is amazing how big this BBQ joint really is. We ate at the busiest time you could imagine...5:30 pm on a Friday. The quality of the the food was very good and we asked to please have it rushed because we needed to catch a bus. You could do much worse in this area.

I return to the place every time I am back in New York. It is value for money, the staff are lovely, the food is delightful and the cocktails are AMAZING! The place to go if you are staving because the portions are huge!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
