Interesting that after reading all the reviews about how good the brisket is I didn't like mine. It might be have a off night. The brisket was dry and not flavorful. The japelano sausage was my favorite item. The green beans and sweet potatoes were good.

As I said, Moist.. Tender.. and Delicious.. Brisket!! Chicken, Ribs and Pork Loin also perfect. Love this place. We normally expect a bit more salads to accompany BBQ dishes in europe, but not something to expect in the US :) Coleslaw will do the trick here..

Coming from the UK, I had to savour this place and check out the stuff we hear about on Man Vs Food - I was not disappointed. I had the Pitmaster and the Brisket was just devine - smoke ring running through it... gorgeous. Definately recommend!

The food was as good as my family would fix in Louisiana or Texas!! Gimicky way to order; line up and place order and the servers mark your items on a chit. Not a big draw but maybe it keeps the prices down by not requiring a lot of servers. And the servers were very pleasant but hard to find... More

Atmosphere has a Texas feel, but the food is far from it. Ordered moist brisket and was disappointed. A good slow, smoked brisket should just about fall apart when you try to cut it with a fork, then almost melt in your mouth. The flavor should be so rich that BBQ sauce is not needed. In this case, it was... More

It was a great barbecue place a couple of blocks from the hotel in W26th street. You go to these counters where they weigh out the barbecued meat, and you visit other counters where you get your sides, and desserts. Staff were friendly, and the beers were cold. Biggish place, but they made us feel welcome.

To be fair, I was there for a seminar/business luncheon. The group was about 130 people. Still, the tables had been set with about half the amount of silverware for the number of seats. There were glasses for water OR iced tea, but not both. The sides came out at least ten minutes before the meat, and the platters of... More

Our family of four tried to sample as many things as possible, so we ordered the brisket (both moist and lean versions), spare ribs and the Wednesday night wings special as mains, plus sides of green bean casserole, mac and cheese, sweet potato mash and coleslaw. We enjoyed everything (and preferred the tastier moist brisket to the lean version). Buyer... More

I make the ‘hurry’ comment because you walk up and order your meat, and they immediately give it to you. Same with sides. Being our first time, and fact that lady likes chicken, and I like sausage, we started with the pit boss sampler. Sausage was good, chicken average [as good as chicken can get]. But the brisket and ribs... More

This is a dry rub type of BBQ, which they do better than anyone. Even the brisket is better than any I've tried in NYC. The ribs are the reason to go. Good sides, country style interior, fairly large up and down.
