We stumbled across this place on a rainy Saturday night expecting to be turned away but they found us a table immediately. The cocktails weren’t cheap but they certainly had a kick to them! Upon the server’s advice we opted for a platter which came quickly with sides of fries, baked beans and corn bread which was more than enough for two of us. We also tried key lime pie which was new to both of us. The waitress was really polite and helpful.

Nice place and good service! We had Texas Beef Brisket (with a delicious Virigl's sauce), Pulled Pork and Georgia Chicken; everything was tasty, big portions and good quality meat. It's worth it to go!

we love bbq and couldn't wait to get to the restaurant. We used open table to do the reservations. They were 15 minutes late which isn't too bad for the city and a rainy night.
The waiter was attentive and timely. The brisket, pork beans, fries etc. was all good and done the way we like it.
We got our check on time and all was good.

We ate here twice during our week visit to NYC and were really impressed both times. It's a busy restaurant so we reserved both times but this is a credit to how good the food is. The service is brilliant, friendly, welcoming and fast! The first night I ordered the 20oz T-bone steak and I can hand on heart say that it was the best steak I have had. We had the nachos to start each time because they were so so good. The portions are huge and I left here both times with the meat sweats - the sign of a good BBQ joint. Prices are typically Times Square but not excessive. If you are visiting NYC then eat here! You won't regret it.

We ate here twice during our recent trip to NYC. Once where we shared a portion of chicken wings (more than enough for 2) and 2nd time a platter of ribs, pulled pork & BBQ beef brisket. Sat at the bar, good atmosphere, friendly staff and as with everywhere in NY, free refills of soda. Great place
