“Good but Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The food was definitely good and the service was amazing. However, the prices are a tad on the high side. I'll admit, I went because I'm a huge JT fan and wanted to see what he had put together but $100 meal for 2 ppl with no alcoholic beverages is a bit much. The food is good BBQ though so if you love it (or JT) go for it just be prepared to shell out the cash.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stopped here after going to see Forever Tango. Food was really good. Only thing that we found a little odd, every BBQ we have ever eaten at they give you corn bread with your meal, it is a southern staple, here you have to buy it. Other than that do have to say everything was really tasty.

“Good southern food, excellent service, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stopped in at Southern Hospitality for a quick dinner before seeing an off-Broadway show and were pleasantly surprised at the homey, welcoming atmosphere (it really was reminiscent of the South), the quick service, and the quality of the food. Everything was delicious (I tried the Mexican street corn) and the bill was very reasonable. A great choice for casual dining.

“As good as BBQ gets in NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I've been eating BBQ throughout the south for 25 years, and know what the real thing tastes like. This is as close as it gets in the Big Apple. Don't miss the Memphis-style dry rubbed wings. Sample the bourbons and good selection of tap beer. Go to the 9th Ave location, as the uptown version of SH doesn't compare. It's good spot for before or after the theater, too.

“very good pulled pork.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

very good food and service. The pulled pork sandwich was excellent and very nice size portions. Restaurant was located a block or two off the time square traffic but well worth the walk.
