    Great Food, MediumPortions - ALWAYS YUM!

    Blue Smoke is a staple for me. I am origianlly from Kansas City and I am a regular here. The food is really good - it's not Kansas City barbecue, but they do a great job getting close. The mac and cheese is unbelievable - a very rich, creamy flavor, but that flavor is NOT processed cheese (as per an earlier reviewers assumption). The deviled eggs, chips and dip, and even their iceburg salad is delish. The one thing I don't really love are their burgers. You can get much better burgers almost anywhere in NYC. Also, their portions are not huge, and if you're from the midwest you know that bbq joints usually give you obscene amount of food. Now I want BBQ.... :)

    A big let down!

    Was looking forward to trying Blue Smoke for some time. I went with the rib sampler and found all three types of ribs to be sub par. I know they use a smoker but everything tasted exactly the same, which was way too smokey. The meat was also tough, dry and grainy. I have had better ribs at some of the local chicken n' ribs takeouts. I was not too fond of the creamed spinach and baked beans that I had on the side.

    Eyeroll to all the nay-sayers

    Yes, Blue Smoke is a little pricey, but you're paying for 1) heaps of meat 2) great atmosphere 3) solid, tasty food with a lot of variety on the menu and 4) living in New York City. Get over it. You probably pay 3000/month for a 10x13ft studio apartment. That's life in new york city and unless you're going to Dallas BBQ the dingier, down home places are just as pricey, only without the atmosphere and variety. So, yeah, kids, sorry to disapoint, but we're not in Kansas (or Texas or North Carolina)anymore nor were we ever.

    Okay...

    Pricey, loud and tight! We ordered pork ribs and beef ribs, the beef much better. Mac& Cheese tasted like velveeta-nasty! Mash tasted like the cardboard box it came in. Get the beef ribs and corn bread. Can say anything fantastic. Nice after work/after hours spot but I didn't find anything fantastic or worth revisiting.

    Great Ribs

    I ate at Blue Smoke a few weeks ago and the Kansas City Pork Ribs were excellent. Good sauce, very meaty and lots of flavor. They aren't cheap but what BBQ place in NYC is. Mac n' Cheese was good and the chocolate chip pie for dessert was out of this world. If you like ribs, you won't go home disappointed.

    2nd time, not a charm

    I went to Blue Smoke years ago to try their BBQ and was greatly underwhelmed and found it overpriced as well. Today is my birthday and I decided to treat myself to a cuban sandwich for lunch. NY Magazine online listed their "Cueban" sandwich as one of the top 5 in NYC (shoulda checked before, that list is from 2003). It's listed on Blue Smoke's online menu. It wasn't listed on this site, which turned out to be the correct menu. No longer offering it, I decided on the Smoked Pastrami sandwich instead. I don't think I've ever had meat so bland in my life. Literally no taste at all. And chewy and fatty on top of that. The bartender was clearly not going to bother asking me how I liked my meal so I pushed it away to get his attention. He offered to replace it with something else and suggested the grilled chicken sandwich. It would have been OK for $5 but it costs $12 so it was gravely disappointing. I'm officially done with this place.
