The short rib, while expensive at $30 / lb is simply out of this world, and I would say its better than the brisket (which is also amazing). We also had the cornbread, mac n cheese - everything was superb. Highly recommended!!

We'd been to the Brooklyn branch and loved it. The food is superb. Service by waitress Heather was excellent. The system for busting food is a little confusing at first. Nice drinks too!

Visited this place on a Friday evening with my mum. Despite it probably being aimed at a younger clientele we were made to feel welcome. I had booked and I was glad I had as it was packed. Thought the 'order your food at the counter' might be confusing but it wasn't. The staff were really friendly and helpful explaining... More

Returned for some good BBQ, remembering our visit last time we were in NY. My partner is a Texan and we both love brisket and sausage. This place is pretty alive and once you get into the routine you can have a great time. The temptation is to end up with too much food and care is needed when you... More

As a tourist from UK, this bbq was just like the ones you see on American food programs. It was delicious and nothing like I have experienced before. Just wish I had and bigger stomach so I could try the rest of the meats!

Wholly recommend the sausages and brisket, succulent and flavoursome. Pulled pork was bit dry and disappointing. Ales were refreshing and service courteous but no nonsense. 9am live music was a treat

Good food and great ambience sets the stage for an unforgettable carnivore experience. Not sure if this is authentic BBQ but this comes real close. The portions are great and the taste was exceptional.

We visited Hill Country Barbecue Market to see one of the free live bands they had booked in the lower level. I guess this is probably how all "bbq joints" are organized -- but I didn't really like waiting in a long line for my food -- first you get your meat, and then it gets cold while you wait... More

We have scheduled our visit for Monday, when they have All You Can Eat option - man, the amount of food you get for 32$ (p/p) is amazing! Everything's so damn good! The moist brisket, the lean brisket, the ribs... Even my wife was delighted with the smoked chicken. This AYCE should be one of the better deals in Manhattan.

This is a perfect combo of really great food and a really fun restaurant! The portions are large so it's a good idea to share. The sides are as good as the mains!

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
