best pulled pork and black Angus I have tried as of yet! Brilliant interior and original decor, however the whole experience is rushed due to the popularity, which is a shame... Would be great to sit down and relax..

I've been going to Fette Sau for years now. Their BBQ is consistently excellent, and they always have one thing everyday that's a little different than the other big boys in town (tri-tip, pork chops, pork belly, etc.). Do yourself a favor and show up early before the crowds arrive (they open at 5p on weekdays and 12p on the... More

My title is meant to try and keep you away from my favorite BBQ spot in NYC. Been coming here for at least 5 years now. The BBQ is great. The drinks are great. The sides are great. In the warm months the line and the wait is way way too long, but I continue to endure it just so... More

Something tells me that it is possible to develop. One who cut up meat orders and other staff inactive.The line was way too long to wait for a meal and there weren't enough seats to accommodate the influx of customers. It gets ugly when you must fight for a place at the bench inside. Contact a baker to develop bread... More

As a self proclaimed barbecue connoisseur I can happily say this is my favorite barbecue place in New York. Though the prices have moved up through the years the quality simply has not. As a meat carver there told me, their higher prices have allowed for better sourcing of their meat. They in house smoking is simply the best. True... More

I've tried a number of BBQ places in NYC in the past 12 months, but this has been my favorite so far. Casual bench style seating where you'll sit yourself down with a tray of assorted BBQ meats and sides and eat with pleasure until you can take no more. You'll get up feeling twice the size you did when... More

If you want to experience fantastic bbq food, find your way here. If you prefer great service, you might consider other alternatives in the area. Unique installation of craft taps! Anyway, this is certainly a place you will remember afterwards.
