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

The restaurant is good! Nice ribs, nice light pork. The pork belly is also very good, but is a little greasy for me! Despite I enjoy the meal, I think you can have a another meal nearby!

Cool place and a very friendly waitstaff. My order was the St. Louis style pork ribs. Succulent and incredibly flavorful. I especially liked the sauce.

Ribs were okay, but 40 dollars for 3 different type meat is way too much guys! ( each small portion... ex. we had three ribs ( one was... More

This place is appropriately named. Fette Sau means Fat Sow in German. You walk in and frequently have to wait in line, but once you get to the front, it is just a deli counter full of cooked meats. We had the brisket, which was fantastic and some pork, also fantastic. The pulled pork wasn't as good as I had... More

Loved this place - it's set back from the road in a little exposed brick building, you queue to make an order and then grab a seat where you can. We ended up sitting at the bar, where we had a couple of great beers alongside our food. Not even sure what to recommend; we had the ribs, some brisket,... More
