There most likely is a long line out the door, which in NYC is not necessarily a testament to the quality of the place. However in this case, the wait is well worth it. The brisket was definitely the highlight of the meal, it was juicy and falling apart at the sight of the fork. You can almost pass it as burnt ends. We also got pulled pork. That was good as well. Taking off a coin because of the sauces or rather the lack thereof. The chef probably wants the meat to speak for itself. IMO, a good sauce is a perfectly nice companion for BBQ. From the sauces on our table, the BBQ sauce was watery and pretty generic, the mustard sauce was too sharp and the ketchup was, well, ketchup.
