“Meat and desserts too”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Great pulled pork and cole slaw- check them out at Citifield too. They also have terrific chocolate baked goods.

“Good...but not great”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

It's good but not great...don't listen to the hype. Doesn't compare to Sylvia's in NYC...or Pappy's in St. Louis.

“STILL HAS GREAT RIBS AND ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Back to NYC after a year - and made a date with my friends to eat at Blue Smoke. This time they put us upstairs, and I thought it was not going to be great - but it was - cozy and much quieter. The waiter -= Patrick - was special and the food great. Definitely a place to visit when in NYC.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Went for dinner at Blue Smoke. Had not been there for a couple of years. The ribs were just as good as always, my favorite are the Kansas City. But the mojito, which used be the best the City was too sweet. Perhaps just a bad night. Kids loved the Vanilla milkshakes. Recommend the chipotle wings appetizer.
