It took 15 mins for someone to take our drink order. Food was ok for a big city BBQ place, but it's not like home (Carolinas). Portions were healthy so I guess you could say over all value was ok.

I am a self proclaimed BBQ expert. This is my meal of choice. Highlights include the hot wings (one of the best sauces I've had), pulled pork and fresh cut fries. Beef ribs were a bit tough, but delicious. The 1/2 chicken was tender. Portions are huge, but the bill was not! Family of 4 including 2 sodas was $65... More

We told them when we walked in that we needed to be out the door in 30 minutes, so they made some recommendations for quick food. I had the taco salad, which... More

Stayed in NYfour nights and this was the worst experience of all in NY. Service at the table was good. Our servant was helpful and understanding. But after waiting for more than an hour and not getting the food, only drinks we hand ordered. It took a while to get some answers, then they lied to us that they had... More

Great location - friendly wait staff - prompt service - delicious food. Just found it by accident and would go again. A bit loud (music) - but we weren't there for a quiet conversation - just good food and then off to more sightseeing.

This is my second time here because my brother insists that every time i'm in NY I have to come here. I ordered the bbq beef rib and lets just say it was the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen or eaten, brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. LoL Food tastes great, big portions and not...
