Well we found Fette Sau on some online-bbq-ratings in new york and as we liked the name, we'll had to give it a try. We stepped in on Monday Evening, about 7pm and we had no waiting line - yeah. They had like 6 diffrent meat/things to choose and we ordered a sampler for two (We got Beed Brisket, Ribs,... More

Great way to end a day touristing in Brooklyn! Great bbq with fair prices. Had the fingerlicking ribs and the tender brisket. Awesome place!

Cool location with strange German name. It turns out that it has little to do with Germany except for the love of meat, maybe ... Good food, nice atmosphere.

The meat at 'Fette Sau' is simply the best, and I love eating on their terrace. Inside it's normally a bit too warm and too noisy for my taste, but overall it's a cool place for BBQ. Very rustic. Though, be careful - it can be quite pricey, so better watch the scale :)

I've now been to Fette Sau twice and it just keeps on getting better. The BBQ meat is superb - try the ribs, brisket and pork belly. But you definitely can't leave without trying the beans - they will blow your mind. Order it all with some craft beer, drunk from a jam jar and enjoy what will probably be... More

My husband and I were on a day tip on a Sunday afternoon. We went to a couple flea markets and a holiday market. My husband didn't tell me the destination until we got off the subway. We stopped first at the City Reliquary Museum,(see my review) then walked a couple blocks. I had no clue it was BBQ, All... More

A stop on a Brooklyn foodie trip with some friends. We were very fortunate to get there just before the crowds. Excellent ribs and brisket. Decent craft beer selection. By the time we finished our meal, the line had grown out the door. This was on a Thursday night.

Went to Fette Sau around 6pm on a Saturday night with 7 friends. By sheer miracle, we not only had almost no wait but were able to all sit together at one of their 3 picnic tables inside. You order the meat by the pound, but you can get a half pound, a quarter pound, etc. My friend and I... More

Went early for dinner on Saturday night, luckily as many had the same idea & even more were lined up when we were finished! We had the ribs, brisket, potato salad & a delicious bottle of cab sav, Really enjoyed the atmosphere! The TV in the fireplace picturing a roaring fire, is a great quirky touch, along with the array... More

This is a very cool spot location & concept - you'll be served the bbq meat you choose on a size large metal tray - but the food itself didn't quite match up. It's good bbq, but not great. Of the pork belly, brisket & ribs, the brisket was definitely the best. It's a little expensive for the standard of... More
