Reviewed May 5, 2013

after being served by a very miserable young man we tried to eat what they are trying to pass off as bbq- over cooked, dried out brisket covered with some sort of watered down,duck sauce that you'd normally find on chinese food. The food was so bad we took it to the boats at the marina to give it to the fish and even the fish were spitting it out. Get a friendly employee and change the sauce, buy better meat and basicly start over i do have to admit that the rice they serve is actually not bad

If you savor BBQ, this primarily carry out restaurant is the place to get it. Savory hot or mild sauce atop Chicken, Beef Ribs and Brisket, accompanied by island style cole slaw, potato salad, or rice. Very tasty and moderately priced. Two permanent locations-one near Havensite in the Wheatly Center strip mall and one in Red Hook across the street from American Yacht Harbor in the parking lot opposite Subway.

Suggested by a local taxi driver. Not a Restaurant but rather a truck with take out and bring back to your hotel or house. I was told the ribs are delicious but was already sold out when I got there by 6 PM. Therefore I ordered the brisket and not sure how the ribs could have been better because the brisket was truly wonderful. Comes with rice, sauce and bread. A full meal.(more than enough)

Went out to pick up a quick take out to bring back to house. They had NO food left, nothing, nada, none.... Sorry, but won't be returning. If your going for dinner, forget it!

This is not a sit down restaurant. It literally is a shack in a parking lot in Red Hook. The ribs are absolutely delicious. The chicken is very good. We did not try the brisket as they had not made it the days we were there. We went three times and each time they were out of something. You can get just ribs or combo dinners. They come with two sides (one is seasoned rice which is good) and an ordinary roll. The portions are generous. The servers were efficient but not very pleasant. If you want good ribs, and take out for dinner, give this place a try.
