The meat and atmosphere are really good and the prices are fair. However, we had to wait in line for almost an hour and when we left the line was almost twice as long as in the beginning (i.e. 1.5 hours wait). To be fair it was on a Saturday evening but I think in high times be prepared for... More

On a typical afternoon weekend, you will notice one thing as you approach Fette Sau... a very long line. Fret not! They have a unique way of serving the customer at Fette Sau which lets the line not be so intimidating after first glance. There is no formal wait staff which will take your order. As your round the corner... More

Found this place recommended on loads of lists of top BBQ places in NYC and it didn't disappoint. Authentic look and feel to the European-style bar and restaurant, it's not table service so just get in the queue for the meat counter. Really friendly guys who recommended what we should go for and what weights and the sides were outstanding.... More

Having visited Fette Sau while on holiday I thought it was one of the most 'hip' restaurants I've ever eaten in not the mention great quality produce! The staff were friendly, and the drinks menu was great offering a wide range of craft beers and really great cider. We will definitely be recommended to our friends planning a visit!

My kids LOVE Fette Sau. When they were younger, we used to wait our front (opens at noon on weekends) and wait for the pig to light up (signals open for business)! Large tables, grab a seat where you can. Food is great, staff are friendly.

This place is small, but the food speaks volumes.I've been to quite a few BBQ places but this one is on top of my list everytime I get in that mood. What's good as well as bad is that the menu is made of chalk which means the menu can change with the blink of an eye. However, the replacement... More

Always a winner and never lets me down! Food is always excellent. Pork belly is my favorite. Open up a bun, add barbecue sauce and tasty bbq and you have small bites of heaven. It is definitely worth the trip to Brooklyn to dine here. Communal style tables where you can enjoy with friends and strangers who become friends. If... More
