    You get what you pay for and more

    Of course the ribs and pulled pork are outstanding, but you must order the Warm Barbecued Potato Chips, the Macaroni & Cheese, and the Dessert Sampler. One heck of a culinary delight!

    Great food - be prepared to pay

    We love the food at blue smoke. Have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Everything from the ribs to the brisket to the desert is delish. Even the hot chocolate with the marshmallow toasted right on top of the cup is absolute perfection. But do be prepared to wait and to pay!

    Not Perfect, but Really Goooood

    First, comments on the last couple of reviews: garnish? You want garnish? If you go to a real BBQ joint (I've been to a bunch in KC) they throw the ribs in some butcher paper, on top of some Wonder bread, toss some pickles on top and tape the whole thing up. Thats BBQ. What do you need garnish for?!? As for Blue Smoke being overpriced... for a slab of ribs, it seems comparable to me. You're in NY baby. Even bad rib places here will price a rack at $20+. So while I dont want to call it "overpriced" (unless you label every restaurant in NYC overpriced, in which case everyone will think you're a country bumpkin)... I'll only give it a 3.5 for value... you COULD satisfy your hunger for 1/10th the price. By getting a couple of dirty water hot dogs. Anyway... the KC ribs are always, always good here. Big, meaty and flavored just right. Add a bit of the sweet and spicy sauce from the table, and its just... really gooood. My wife loves the pulled pork. Our kid loves the kids menu, esp the decorate yourself cookie. I even like the fries. And the mac and cheese too. The burger is OK, but you can do better. But come here for the ribs, and you wont be disappointed. Oh, and the service is usually friendly but hurried, because the place is always packed, even at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon. Yes, you do have to flag down your waiter/waitress if you want a refill on you coke. And twice they took away my wife's place while *I* was still working on it (she couldn't finish). But it was an honest mistake and I dont blame them. Just protect the food you are eating off your dinner partner's plate! 8-) Highly Recommended.

    Overrated

    I'm not getting what people like about this joint. It's overpriced and the barbecue is so-so. The one highlight was the burger. anyway i still love menupages and will keep using it everyday, literally.....

    Overrated

    Presentation of food was poor. It was just a pile of meat on a plate...no garnish, no greens And the service was not good either. We had to ask for service instead of service coming to us, even to get drinks or condiments. For the price, it shouldn't just be meat, the vegetables were a-la-carte. The Good part was food was tasty & ambiance was fun & casual. I wouldn't go back though.

    No Joke - best bbq in NYC!

    As a native Texan, I consider myself an expert on barbeque, and I've found Blue Smoke to be the best place to get it here in NYC. I adore the Texas beef ribs, the fries, and that cute pig-shaped cookie in my strawberry sundae dessert. I've consistently found the servers to be attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The atmosphere is also great. On weekend nights, it can be a bit loud, but I enjoy the lunch hour. I've yet to experience the live jazz on weekends (Sundays, I think), but I'll be checking that out in the future. Blue Smoke is pricey, but worth every cent.
