This place is awesome and unique...especially for Manhattan. The brisket is always delicious when I go. It is reasonable priced and the family style portions make it the ideal place to go with a group. If you love BBQ you can't go wrong here.

I ate a beef rib, pork rib, lean briscuit, chicken breast, potato salad, and baked beans. Was I full? I rolled outta there. I would definitely go back. I could have made 4 meals out of my order. Loved it. The only problem - no french fries.

A REAL Texas bar-b-q in the middle of Manhattan........lots of fun with great food a great "vibe"and Texas decor........we went on a Tuesday night around 7 pm. Arrived just in time, because the lines got long after that....we asked for a seat downstairs and then walked back up to order. Probably about 4 in front of us, but as we waited the line grew to over 30.

Please see my blog at http://talesfromtheroad-mwalno.blogspot.com/

A VERY DIFFERENT way to order, you get a card (much like a golf card) that has the selections for dinner and sides on it, go up to the meat counter and order whatever you want (brisket, steaks, ribs, pork) and the quantity you want. They carve it right up in front of you, put it on a old fashioned butchers paper (with a piece of bread) and then you head over for the sides. Again, this "old fashioned" like being in the butchers, with a big case of all the sides. They mark on the card what you ordered.

We headed back down to our table and waters in mason jars were waiting. Then the waitress came over and we placed drink orders, and she took the score card and a credit card, and came back with the drinks. Service was marginal throughout the night, we had to flag down one of the waitresses who were in our section --- they pool their tips and service suffers because of it. You sit at large picnic tables with white plastic coverings, it is a very authentic Texas experience!

FOOD was AWESOME.....I had the brisket and I loved every bite of it. The bar-b-q sauce was SO GREAT, and the meat was cooked to perfection. The side of mac and cheese was pretty bland (and cold) by the time I got to the table, but the German potatoes were great, and the boys loved the green bean casserole.

Tuesday night is karaoke night, and they have a live band that plays for those who sing. It was really fun, and we stayed for the first 6 or 7 regulars who sang....some were horrible and some were good. When we decided to leave we each took our scorecard to the cashier and she rang us up.

A very interesting and FUN experience......you MUST give it a try.

We turned up here late one night and were warmly greated. You have to go up to the counter to order your food and as we were not sure what to order we ordered the meal for 2 for $49. The amount of meat they gave us was enormous!! very tasty too. We ate about half of it and they boxed up the rest for us to take away. They had a loud band playing down stairs which gave it atmosphere, but not good if you were wanting a quiet night. Great place and great food.

Not the best barbecue I have ever eaten, but definitely different. Very rustic with wooden tables and absolutely no dishes! Meat served rolled up in butcher paper. We had a combination of moist brisket, barbecued beef and pork ribs and chicken. Plenty of sides to pick from including corn bread. Confusing if first time visiting. The wait staff simply brings your drinks and cleans your paper cartons. Once you have decided what you would like to eat, you take the menu card provided to the various stations where the item you have chosen is recorded. DO NO LOSE THIS CARD OR YOU WILL BE CHARGED FIFTY DOLLARS FOR DINNER REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU HAVE ORDERED! We did not sample dessert as we were too full. Tab for 4 with ice teas was 100 dollars!
Should definitely try this restaurant if you want something fun and different!
