It's the “quintessential Williamsburg experience” to “join the hipsters” at this “serious foodie” “heaven” for “awesome” dry-rub, by-the-pound BBQ paired with “artisanal” beers and bourbons; no rezzies means “crazy lines” for “cafeteria-style” service in a “former garage” outfitted with “communal picnic tables” – but to most it's so “worth it.”

What’s with 2 stars and complaining about dry meat? Go to Virgil’s in Time Square for that (ate there yesterday). Walked in and said it was my first visit and I was walked through the ordering process and given advice on how much meat to order (sold by the weight). Good friendly service. I ordered 1/2 lb pork ribs and 1/4 lb (smallest portion sold) brisket. Ribs were good and brisket was even better. Asked if there was diet soda and nope. So I ordered the honey lemonade—excellent! I’ll be back to try the other meats next time I’m in NYC. I took the M train from Time Square to visit. Glad I explored beyond Midtown Manhattan.

Delicious barbeque place. Counter service with a beer hall layout. Very moist brisket which was flavorsome and tender. When I was there on a Saturday night the service was slow as there was only one staff member cutting and weighing meat with a very long line. This might be on purpose to stop the place from overfilling with people with trays of food and nowhere to sit, the rest of the place was efficient, tables were cleaned after guests very quickly. This restaurant serves Mexican coke in a glass bottle.

What a place! Long wooden tables with benches, paper plates, bottomless sauces, broad variety of beer on tap, nice choice of wines by the glass and simply the best bbq I’ve ever had. Meat is soft and tender, full of flavor. To me it’s a sign of quality, when place specifies in one certain dish and few sides to choose from. That’s what Fette Sau is- great place for a meat feast, with laid back, chilled, rustic atmosphere where you rather often see three piece suit man take girls on dates. Because the food is that good!😁
