Incredible smoked meat

This is by far the best place to eat smoked ribs, brisket and other smoked meats! they use a great rub and have a great selection of crafted beers and tons of bourbons! Highly recommended!

Unique experience for us Aussies - American BBQ brilliantly done in a laid back, no frills setting. Superb. We sheltered from the snow in Fette Sau with comfort food and craft beers. Would go back in a heart beat if it was possible!

Being from Texas I had a poor attitude going in. This place exceeded expectations. Some of the best BBQ I've had. Right up these with the Texas greats. Good drinks as well.

I love my meat and this is the perfect place to go and get it. A slice of this and a slice of that. If you don't know the names of the parts of the cow or pig just look at the wall 😊. Love the concept, eating of a tray table and drinking out of glas pots.

The ribs and briskets are amazing, especially with the vinegar sauce. They charge by either piece or weight so you can potentially try a bit of everything, satisfying your tastebuds without compromising your figure!

Great atmosphere, great food and a decent price. The first night we tried to visit the place there was a queue out the door so gave up. The second time we got there early and could sample all the options. It is communal dining so might not be for everyone, but we thought it added to the atmosphere.

Prepare to focus on that sweet, sweet meat as those in the queue eye up the seated diners like vultures and can make you feel rushed. Quite a few in that queue are lining up for take-out, though I'm not sure you can really take that into account when you arrive. Asked for "enough meat for four people" and I... More

Saw this place on food network and had to try it. We walked in and you order at a desk as if you would at a deli. You can just tell the guy what you want and he will arrange a tray for you and for the amount of people you have. The potato salad wasn't really my thing. The... More

Were chatting to some other travellers and mentioned we wanted to find a good US BBQ restaurant in NY. They recommended this place highly. Now I can too! Went along on a very cold Thursday evening in Jan, prior to going to a Nets game. Got there just after 6pm. Only 3 or 4 people in the q ahead of... More
