The food is ok tasty. Nothing I would write my grandma back home. I had the special of the day meaning you could choose two meat BBQs and two sides for only around 20€. I had the sticky ribs and the pulled pork (which had undefined sauce on it). On the side creamy corn and baked beans - tastewise a... More

What a huge disappointment. I have driven by this restaurant several times and the aroma of the ribs permeated the air, so I decided to try it last Thursday. Much to my surprise, it was cafeteria style. Looking through the glass at the side, you could give your order to the cashier. The side orders looked unappealing but I was... More

Er stayd in NYC for ohne week and explored a lot of different restaurants and diners. The food at Daisy May's was verry tasty and in large portions. If you stay in front of it, you would not expect such a delicious stuff. The spare rips where the best I've ever had.

It's true: they serve the best BBQ ribs, tender, sweety and tasty! It's an informal restaurant, so do not expect service at tables, but it's worthy. Located in Hell's kitchen, on 46th str/11th Ave.

I had an excellent BBQ experience at this restaurant. I had the ribs and went with the half dry and half sweet with corn bread and mac and cheese. The portion size was more than I could handle but was all delicious. I'm no BBQ expert but it certainly met my expectations. The beer was reasonably priced and overall experience... More

Looking for lunch within walking distance to my hotel I came upon Daisy May's BBQ. I looked at the online reviews and decided to give it a try. The staff was less than inviting and the pulled pork was just average. Not the worst but room for improvement.

I love BBQ and this place is the real deal. I was very excited to see dry rub Memphis style ribs on the the menu and they lived up to expectations. Perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The chili, sides were also excellent. I highly recommend this place for some simple down at home bbq cooking. It's also reasonably priced... More

We LOVE the food here! Last time we were in NYC we did a lot of ordering in because our baby girl was only 6 months so we would put her to bed and order food, we loved it then, and we love it now... Every single thing we ordered was phenomenal...

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.
