Quite simply this has set a new standard for me in BBQ food. I can't enjoy regular ribs anymore after trying this stuff! All premium, all delicious, a real experience & education in southern style BBQ.

This place reminds me of Freddy's in House of Cards but more popular and filled with hipsters. It's down an alleyway which doesn't look particularly inviting but it's a quirky wee place with really tasty BBQ meat (brisket, pulled pork, spicy wings) and an incredible whiskey collection (whiskey flights available)

Very popular hip spot. Lots of locals. You order in line (brisket and pulled pork, and potato salad were quite good), and then buy beer separately at the bar (lots of great craft choices). Picnic tables with paper towels and BBQ sauce.

Go here if you love meat! Had some great brisket, pulled pork and ribs. The side order of beans were amazing! Service was fast, atmosphere was lively.

It's a fun place with a good selection of beers and ciders, nice BBQ meat, good choice of side oders and a groovy atmosphere.

After reading the reviews the experience we had was so disappointing. Brisket was good but the ribs were super tough. Also, the wings were totally average too. This place is charging far too much for what it's delivering.

It's all in the headline - it's the best BBQ food I have had in the area. Make sure it's on your list if you visit New York

We arrived early evening and this may be why the bar had only one person serving which meant a queue for the food followed by a longer wait for a drink. We were told that the ribs were really large that evening so we were prepared for a feast, only to be bitterly disappointed with the plate of bones we... More

Had a great time here. Queued for a short time to get our food, Ribs and Brisket and sides. then found a pace to sit at the communal bench type setting. The meat was cooked perfectly, the best brisket i've had. There was also some great local beers on tap which we also enjoyed.

After standing in a bit of a line to order you can choose from a variety of great BBQ meats. The BBQ sauce itself is spicy and amazing. you can order interesting whisky flights at the bar to enhance the all experience.
