A friend claimed this was the best BBQ joint that she has been and she was right about that! The food was to die for and especially the beef briskets. I'm not a fan of brisket but that was my favorite dish hands down. The baked beans came in a close second. You absolutely have to try it. I think... More

Fette Sau is the best there is. Period. There may be a line out the door sometimes, but go to the bar and grab a drink while you wait. It is always worth it. I've been to all the other major names in BBQ around NYC, but Fette Sau is on another level. My only complaint is that it's small... More

We have visited twice now, once in Jan 15, and again in October 15. This is now a must visit every time we are in NY. We are from the UK and although we stay in manhattan when we visit NY, Brooklyn is where our heart is - I love Williamsburg. For travellers - don't be intimidated by going over... More

I loved this place - it was everything I imagined before coming to US and thinking of BBQ. You choose what you want and they weigh it - even though it sometimes looks small, it really isn't! The food was really nice and there was a good selection of beers and whiskeys as well. 👌

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!!

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
