This place is so overrated to say the least! We waited for 90 minutes on what seemed like a never ending line. I have never in my life waited this long, not for the best places in NYC. Food was good, but I would never go back if I have to wait for this long....so unnecessary! To make things worse, by that time some of the things on the menu were sold out. It seems that the owners/management don't know how to run this place properly. The guy who takes your order, cuts and weights the meat, and also makes sandwiches so everyone else has to wait. Then, you move on to order your sides and pay with another person. There should be at least two more people helping them.
Went here with a friend to check out the best BBQ in NYC. After braving the 90 minutes line, we were finally able to indulge in this great BBQ feast. We tried the brisket and sausage and lamb and corn bread and coleslaw. The brisket and lamb were decent--not the best I've ever had, but definitely above average. I would say that the coleslaw was also on that level. The sausage was a little more memorable for me and the corn bread was the best thing we ate. Overall, not sure this place is worth the long wait, but I was glad to finally check out what all the fuss is about. Staff were very friendly and everything is reasonably priced--just be ready to wait a while.
A tie with Hill Country for best brisket in the city. Succulent, smoky, and peppery. The pit beans with burnt ends are really good too!
