I really loved this whole experience. For starters, the food is so tasty. The setting is really relaxed and they have a really good selection of beer. We got the ribs, pulled pork and spicy sausage. The pulled pork is to die for. Very reasonably priced for the quantity of food. If you're not opposed to eating your food directly... More

Since we are both certified Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) judges, we had to make the trek here to try their brisket. It was exactly as we had hoped-extremely moist, great smoky flavor, tender and with a hint of salt on the outside. We devoured a whole pound between the 2 of us, along with a side order of the...

What a place we found while staying in NYC! After looking for the restaurant we found it a bit away from the main road in an old garage. We were seated on benches. While my husband came with the beer it was in old jam jars. But it still tasted good! The food was served on trays and in plastic... More

At first glance I didn't what to think of this place that my Brother-in-law recommended. Who sells smoked meats out of a townhouse garage in Williamsburg, NY? Well, looks are definitely deceiving on this one. The food was very good. It is sold by the pound along with sides. Also had whiskey available. Dining space was limited and we had... More

The food at this restaurant was awesome. You can try a little bit of each type of meat as you stand in line and order meat by the pound, but if you want to try all of them, 1/4 lb is a good portion for two people.

You can taste attention to detail and maniacal dedication to being the best. The brisket here is simply the best. The meat sourcing from upstate New York produces the thickest, meatiest brisket I have ever seen. Smoked preparation is wonderful and fork tender finish superb. I have had brisket throughout the US. Who would have thought Brooklyn would produce the... More

The ambiance is nice and thank god it is hidden because the wait would have been longer Lol... The meat was great but stick to the ribs and chicken because the other meats tend to be on the fatty side... (I don't mind but my GF did) Great sauces and seating area... I loved the smoke flavor... the wood made... More

Cafeteria style BBQ. It's really hard to get a table but the BBQ is amazing so it kinda evens out. It's a fun place to get your "mass quantities of beef" on.

Not sure what to say that hasn't already been said- the meat here is simply non-pareil. They also have an incredibly Bourbon Selection -i recommend the pappy van winkle if you haven't had it- as well as fantastic beer. It can get a bit crowded at times, but even with a line that extends out the door the wait is... More
