Amazing food and beer

The food was amazing. We loved the beef brisket and pork spare ribs. The sides were equally amazing. Broccoli salad was fresh and crisp, pickles were lovely, and the beans were ridiculously good. The beer was also amazing. We had the fette brau pilsner. Just perfect!!

You might think I am not qualified to write a review, but there might be someone else like me who would like my insight. For a vegetarian this isn't a great place. I went here because I had friends from out of town who were anxious to try it. Many meat only places have something on the menu for vegetarians,... More

Great pork belly. This is the main standout on the menu in my opinion. The only bad thing is the long line which can easily be over an hour, but deservingly worth it.

Great barbecue, I enjoy the pork belly. Along with the great food is a great bar with tasty drinks and beer. All of the meat is great

Best bbq. Best beer. Great atmosphere. It's def worth the wait (no reservations) but most likely there will be a line to order.

If you heard the food line for this place goes down the block, you heard right. However, if you go between 3-5pm like we did, you'll find no line, and loads of mouthwatering bbq all yours for the taking. Comfortable atmosphere with family bench seating, you order food by the pound, and a quarter pound of ribs and beef with... More

While it is pricey it is worth it. Any time we go back to New York to visit my family we make sure to stop at Fette Sau. Meat is smoked on location and the menu changes according to what is available. Family seating, so you'll likely sit with folks you don't know. It's a popular place for locals so... More

Visited Fette Sau the first time in 2012 and it was an amazing experience. There was a long queue but it was definitely worth the wait. I decided to take some friends of mine to introduce them to this establishment and share an awesome experience with them. First thing I noticed was that there was no queue and actually lots... More

Best meat restaurant in New York! The place is very simple, with shared tables and good beers on tap. The sides are excellent. Best ribs ever!

I took my husband here, because in all fairness, he has somewhat become a forced vegetarian because of me. Every once in a while, I don't mind eating some meat, as long as it's fresh. So honestly, until we ate here, I can't say when the last time I ate anything meat related. So I decided to take him here... More
