Big eats for hungry people

Just a short walk off Times Square but away from the general hub bub this place is a heaven for people who like real American food in a non pretentious setting. Portions are big, food quality good, service quick and sensible prices. Best of all its not touristy, it's frequented by mainly locals.

Daisy May's was the eating highlight of our break in NYC. Take a walk out to 11 Ave and you won't regret it. Excellently priced... especially in comparison to the rest of the places we ate in NYC and the food is simply delicious. Don't be put off by the order first, collect your food then sit down approach -... More

After a long walk in Manhattan, this was the place we needed: comfort food with different ribs (dry and sticky pork and beef). Done really to perfection. Price are good, service quite miserable at cashier. Great casual place to have your oversized portion of ribs and BBQ.

We were looking for BBQ food in NYC, found this place and came twice on the same trip. What you see is what you get.... Simple food, hearty, obviously not healthy but who cares when it's that good!

Ok ribs. Too little sauce, lots of meat. Good but not great. A little bit Expensive. Beans and smashed potatos were really good

After a recommendation from a family member we decided to try Daisy May's. I'm so glad we took the 15 minute walk from Times Square to try it! We took the 2 and 2 special. Sweet & Sticky Pork Ribs, Sliced Brisket, Mashed Potatoes, and Burnt Ends Baked Beans. Everything was delicious. The brisket melted in your mouth. I'm not... More

While in NC=YC with a group of friends, we were unexpectedly treated to a catered buffet with food by Daisy May’s BBQ. The food was outstanding! Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Corn Bread, creamy coleslaw! The staff was awesome and the food was served hot and plentiful. I look forward to Daisy May’s BBQ next time we visit... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
