Brooklyn BBQ done right

Who'd a thunk we could have southern BBQ in BK? It's here at Fette Sau. The setting looks like an old garage reconfigured for a dinner. There is no ambiance there are community picnic tables a que up for the food you want and then enjoy to your hearts content. Wait staff clears the tables you... read more

Read good reviews about this place so wanted to check it out. We came early (a little before 7) and there was no line at the food counter. We ordered ribs, pulled pork and brisket. All the meat was somewhat on the dry side though tasty. The potato salad as a side was average and the broccoli, which was recommended... More

Of our NYC BBQ experience, Fette Sau is the best! I decided to try this place because it always had a long line out of the door. Ribs was incredible. The prices are good for the quantity and quality. All in all, I will be back again as soon as I can!

This is a truly awesome place for BBQ. We had brisket, pulled pork and pork belly, all of which were awesome but also totally nasty. Sides were also great as was the beer

The dinner is definitely worth crossing the bridge for when in New York! You purchase the meat based on weight so before ordering you roughly know how much you get for the price you pay! We had a bottle of wine with dinner which was also priced well! So we had 3 different meats at 1/2 pound each with 2... More

I can't explain how good this place is. The meats are so good and the sides are just as good. It's a little pricey but so worth it! Just go!!

Fette Sau is truly a great place. The food is delicious, and the portions are huge! Compared to much of New York, it is actually good value. Highly recommend a visit - it's worth the wait in the queue at the door!

I enjoyed the jalapeno pork sausage and the brisket very much. Unfortunately, the potato salad basically assaulted my mouth with pure vinegar and mustard. It was a one note side dish that almost numbed my tongue. The decor was also not what I expected. I did not like sitting so close to random strangers and sharing the condiments, but that... More
