Cheap but you get what you pay for

I was a regular for a while until I got tired of the bad plates and uneven service. Ok for a person on a budget and a strong stomach. Some managers even rude. I recommend spending a few more dollars and having a better time. Definitely not a recommended NYC experience if visiting

The food was pretty good, but the atmosphere was quite loud. There were several birthday celebrations happening all in the same section and it was overwhelming to our family.

We stopped in this neighborhood eatery before going to see the production of Stomp (which was just across the street at the Orpheum Theatre). We like getting away from the “touristy” places and experiencing local restaurants. You knew it was going to be good because it was loud and there were people waiting to get in. We grabbed a table...

In a neighborhood known for great restaurants, I can't believe that this place survives. There is nothing about this restaurant that is Texas BBQ. There is no possible way that they have a smoker in that building, I ordered the brisket sandwich and was served some sort of grey processed beef that looked and tasted like it was boiled an...

The food was ok, but we had to wait a lot to get the microwave food. Yes, microwave because you could see the food was reheated. The place is big and loud. Not impressed

During prime time, you will wait, often outside for a table. Instead, if you live in the 'hood, pick up tghe phone and place your order. Ribs are the best, chicken good tgoo. Coleslaw is deelishm, but is sweet and I'll bet they use a lot of sugar. th chili is not spice, just the way I like it. It... More

Dallas BBQ has been around for a long time. It is dependable and the food is good. Surprising part is the friendly and attentive service. Take-out is good too; delivery containers are superior to other places.

I order (I have never dined in) from this Dallas BBQ a lot but you have to know what to order. Things I love: Famous Texas crispy wings (probably the best thing on the menu), hot wings, Hennessy wings, sticky chicken tenders, crispy shrimp, BBQ baked beans, Texas style chili, corn bread, yellow rice and the honey basted chicken Things...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
