You may easily walk past this place, but make sure you dont. The experience and food are both excellent. We tried a platter of various cuts of meat, with a couple of sides and every part was delicious. Also has a great choice of craft beers on offer. All set in a bustling, social environment with shared benches and tables.... More

We were recommended this place by a friend and we were not disappointed! This was the first BBQ food I had eaten on our trip to New York and it was just sumptuous. Good luck trying to get a table!

I love everything here (even side order). The restaurant is self-service though. If you want a romantic place, this ain't for you. But if you wanna enjoy eating tasty & juicy bbq with your fingers, come here!!

Great place. Loved how laid back it all was. The meat was amazing and loved the flavours! Pork belly was a mind blowing moment. I would give this place five stars if maybe there were a few more options for the side dishes. Maybe a awesome coleslaw or some warm potato option. I'm picking holes here as I loved it!!

The BBQ joint is a bit trickey to find, but once entered the "garage" style location it offers what i would describe as the best BBQ i ever had in my entire life! The guys who run the joint are super authentic, very friendly a helpfull. Next time in New York i'll definitley will go back!

Cozy Brooklyn BBQ place for great food. Atmosphere is great and always feel comfortable while dining here. One of the restaurants that I take people who visit me in NY during the year. Everyone is super satisfied so far. Beware of long waiting lines on friday and saturday nights ( which should be expected at all great Brooklyn restaurants during... More

4 of us headed here after a night at the Brooklyn Brewery having had it recommended by some locals. An old garage kitted out with smokers and a large bar the place is cool. Great food sold by weight with simple sides to choose from a wide selection of beer and whisky. Well worth a visit.

Perfect for low and slow food, try the brisket and the pulled pork. Nice collection of whisky. But they have no waiters or table service , but a cool location in Williamsburg.

Statement from their website - "Smoked Meat, craft beer by the gallon and the best american whisky list in New York city". My opinion - The meet is cooked to perfection, the selection of craft beer is large (and the 3 types I tasted was very good), and the number of different whiskys was impressing! Great spot for a looooong... More

We had excellent barbeque here several years ago and something had definitely changed- today or was only eatable. We are very disappointed- other barbeque restaurants in the city are much better.
