The specialty cocktail I had while waiting for a table was pretty good. For a GF customer, I really appreciated the multiple cider options. I had a half rack of ribs, which were pretty average. I liked the BBQ sauce that was on the ribs, but the ribs themselves just weren't that great. Our server was really nice and accommodating, especially with my allergies.

My first issue started when we first got to the restaurant - I'm not sure if the host was new, but it seemed like he had no idea what he was doing. He wasn't able to tell us how long it would be for a table, and his interactions felt really forced and awkward. The restaurant honestly seemed like it was trying really hard (too hard) to be a competitor to Brother Jimmy's. I'm not sure which restaurant came first, but I think I enjoy the Brother Jimmy's experience much better.

Also - if you're not a huge sports fan, this might not be place to go. With TVs covering almost every inch of wall space, there are plenty of screaming fans throughout the restaurant. But if you're really into a basketball game that night, this is the place for you.

We were visiting from England and stumbled across this place on my partners 30th birthday- thought they would make a bit more of a fuss of him but the waiter wasn't really that interested in us.

Food was okay, doesn't come with sides or anything and this was probably one of the most expensive meals we had in NYC and it was nothing memorable. Just okay, would probably recommend only going for nibbles and drinks.

Fantastic food, great atmosphere and friendly staff and to top it off it was reasonably priced. We went back the next day we enjoyed it so much!

We frequent this restaurant every time we are in NYC and we love it. Great food, service and good value for money in the City. We recommend the pulled pork, coleslaw, nachos and the Chipolte BBQ boneless wings are amazing! Great beer selection too. Book in advance as sometimes it's packed during sporting events.

It's like a sports bar, they have they so many TVs and a huge one in the back. What better to enjoy the World Series or Super Bowl than BBQ ribs and beer? My favorite spot in NYC.
