Was enjoying Brooklyn as I wandered by Mable’s. The food was wonderful. Lauren took great care of the service and the experience was outstanding. I spent a lot of time living and traveling around the South. Mable’s ranks right up there for great BBQ!

The food was great! It was a quiet night their, but can definitely tell that it could get quite busy... Everything we order was spot on with the exception of the macaroni and cheese... I was looking for some southern home mac n cheese we...were left short, bu it nevertheless they substituted for more greens!More

I’ve traveled through several southern states and I’ve enjoyed really really good BBQ. With these good memories I entered with my Italian friend. Excited as we were we ordered a De Luxe platter to share and try all different styles of meats and sides. I...was embarrassed from the moment we got the plate. Everything is served in paper or plastic materials. The pulled pork looked dry and chunky, the ribs didn’t look juicy and the sausage looked rubbery and way to greasy. The sides were equally looking disappointing. Mac&cheese overcooked and no crusty crust or any effort to make it slightly look appetising. The meats were all dry and over smoked the portion was small for two considering to other bbq joints I’ve been. The taste of everything was just dryness and overly smoked. As a cook I would never dare to serve this. I can’t believe he even tried what he served us. The waiter was cold, we couldn’t get any interaction. We paid since we were freaking hungry after our travels from Europe and the tour in the next door brewery. But we’ve never felt so gross after a meal.More

Came across this place as we had just left a show in the neighborhood. We ordered pulled pork sandwich with collard greens, brisket and chicken combo (the chicken was eh) with beans and potatoe salad, guacamole with chips, and 2 other chicken dishes. For drinks...we ordered beers. Great service and good food.More

My wife and I have been visiting Mable's for several weeks in a row. The bartender Pauline is excellent and remembered our names in just a couple of days. We go to trivia night which also happens to be on Taco Tuesdays. Those tacos.... they're...ridiculously good and a great value. Happy hour ends at 7 and trivia starts at 8. We have tried everything on the menu at this point. The ribs are banging. The pulled park pretty decent. The wings were sub par. The brisket is pretty dry. The BBQ chicken serviceable. But have I mentioned those tacos? The chili is good but my homemade is better. Their stew is good with solid chunks of meat inside. As for sides we've had them all also. The beans and the barracho beans are decent. The candied yams are solid but watery. The corn bread are small and rather underwhelming. So basically this place wins on the tacos and the ribs, and the people. You'll find food better and cheaper elsewhere (although maybe not at the same time) but for a fun Tuesday night out you'll do pretty well here.More

I ordered pretty much a little of every thing. It was all soooo worth it. I loved the bbq ribs, potato salad, brisket...candied yams...omg, and the corn bread! I will be back shortly. Keep up the great work! Money well spent.

We are staying just down the road so will probably return to try out some other dishes - the ones we had were lovely! Tasty pulled chicken, good mac and cheese and the corn bread was warm and delicious!! Very smokey tasting ribs.

Well, what can I say. I still dream of going back to Mable's Smokehouse. We ate so much, because it was delicious, (and we were hungry, decently priced (read: compared to some others: cheap) and OMG the size of those plates. I would do it...again! One of the best meat plates ever order, without the blah. Good place for groups too.More

Do not think they do but the prices are very reasonable and atmosphere is great. And the bbq is legit.

I am not sure if they have a private room for your party, but I can highly recommend the food and the beer.
