The Dr Pepper ribs and Shrimps with Grits are remarkably good. And the cornbread is just delightful.

Since i live in the neighborhood i have now eaten at the star a number of times in the short time that it has been open. I have tried almost everything on the menu- some items multiple times now... and i have to say the food gets better with each visit. if you like rich, hearty, comfort foods for a good value you will not be disappointed by the Bk Star. The ribs, pig-tails, trout, and collards are all favorites of mine so far. and i can never decide which i like more- cornbread or biscuit (both are amazing). Enjoy! btw- i am an oyster snob and i highly recommend what they are offering. We had Beau Soleil oysters which were sweet and creamy, with a hint of a thin bbq sauce- like a southern style mignonette. Delicious!

me and my boyfriend went friday after work. we started with the jalopeno (bacon) cornbread. came out hot and really soft. best cornbread. next mac&cheese (bacon) was excellent as well. creamy and not too salty.. just perfect. ordered country steak and meatloaf. the meatloaf was too salty - only complaint. also ordered ice tea - no sweet tea was disappointed. overall was a satisfying meal and will come back. also the food is very well priced.

It's a bad sign when a Brooklyn restaurant has the word 'Brooklyn' in its name. Atmosphere: The lighting doesn't make sense for a restaurant. It's way to bright and there's no intimacy. The large table in the middle of the space cramps the booths on the inside, so that dinners and servers are constantly having to squeeze past. Food Quality: The cooks kept staring at us to see our response to the food. We tried our best to feign enjoyment. I don't even know where to begin. The corn bread is more like a corn pancake, fluffy and insubstantial. The fried green tomatoes were flavorless, and the accompanying sauce was no help. Everything else was undeniably too salty. It overpowered all flavours. The chicken fried steak was all fry and little steak. By the way they don't have any steak knives, so good luck with this dish. Value: This place is simply over-priced for the quality of the food. Service: The service was attentive, helpful, and friendly. No complaints. There are far too many great restaurants in the area, and we won't be back unfortunately.

Ive been hearing about the partner from momofuku breaking off and opening his own place in hipster williamsburg so friday night i decided to try it out. heres how it went down: fried green tomatoes: dry. pig tails: good. Dr.pepper ribs: average. Mac & cheese: average. i didnt order any mains but i dont think i needed to, the food is very overwhelming and too acidic, i think there are really good ideas the chef is trying to offer but i dont think its happening. both the dr.pepper ribs and the pig tails were almost identical (i prefered the pig tails) the corn on the cob they serve as a garnish is way to over powered by vinegar and is almost unedible. the chef/owner needs to kick his game up a few notches or his "off the strength of momofuku" wont carry him into next summer. maybe hearing the name momofuku sets the bar too high from the jump.
