The Zagat Review
A “destination-worthy” home to “honest” BBQ, this Red Hook “champ” supplies “terrific” Texas-style meats (think “melt-in-your-mouth” brisket and “caveman-sized” ribs) in a “converted garage” with a “roadhouse party vibe” ; “energetic” crowds line up for the counter service, but the “smoky” “excellence” “rewards the wait.”

In my opinion, this has to be one of the best BBQ joints in NYC! Actually, a friend from Texas who lives in New York now endorsed it too. A very nice selection of your traditional meats along with featured items on the menu that introduces some new flavors and styles, such as the Korean sticky ribs, which was available the last time I went. I always seem to have the problem of wanting to order a little bit of everything, which can lead to some of the best food comas you can experience. I will without a doubt be coming back here again for more!

Not the best BBQ I've had, but maybe I was expecting too much from other reviews. I had the jerk ribs and tried the pulled pork as well. The ribs were a great level of spicy and had nice flavor, but really weren't that tender and we're on the small side. The pulled pork was good but also not great. The sides are lacking compared to the meats, but both the mac n cheese and out beans are pretty good. Service is fine and prices are a bit high for what you get.

THE Best place for BBQ hands down! I am in this part of Brooklyn about once a month and I stop here every chance I get. I've tried most of the items on the menu and I love it all. The ribs fall off the bone, the brisket has an unbeatable crust and is super tender and the lamb belly is like no other. The sides are incredible as well. My favorite is the baked beans which have brisket pieces built into them. The only thing I don't care for is the mashed potato side. Everything else is off the hook!
