The restaurant is too noisy for me but I can not resist the portions and the prices. Besides their chicken soup, roast chicken and french fries are very good. And the Early Bird is unbelievable.

This was THEE WORST Barbecue place I have ever been to in my entire life. The wings were like dry KFC dipped in some low grade barbecue sauce. The Brisket, and the pulled barbecue was dry with some bbq drizzle on it. Please do not go here for any reason expecting Good or even edible barbecue. My family was sick... More

I always like this place when I feel like pigging out on bbq meats! I specially like the crispy wings & braised beef ribs. Servings are huge, perfect for people with large appetites!

There is a reason why all kinds of people (old Yorkville people, disabled people, young urban people) come here: because the price is right. You will never go wrong with moderately priced gianormous frozen drinks and decent sized food portions. For snobby bbq-ist, this place is not for you, so step aside so I can get a table faster and...

We were able to get in without a wait but the restaurant was full. The food was excellent. We ordered three different meals in our group and they were all extremely good. The portions were large enough on everyone of them that none of us could finish them. Absolutely 5 stars!

I remember the first restaurant of this chain on West 72nd St. After over 25 years at that location it closed last year. But fortunately a bunch including this one remains.

Really was disappointed with this delivery. The brisket was very in brisket like and was bland and lacked flavor. May be different sit down but wouldn't do delivery again
