Brother JImmy's is supposed to be a BBQ joint but completely fails as one. The other day I ordered BBQ wings for an appetizer and a grilled chicken sandwhich with fries for my main course. I'm fat and love food - as such, I never have got an order of wings that I couldn't finish, that is, until now... The wings were cooked pourly, had burnt marks from being over fried and were very fatty. To make is worse, the homemade BBQ sauce was not good - how can one survice as a BBQ joint and have horrible sauce? I thought the sandwhich would be better and how I was wrong. The bread was stale and hard. The chicken was pounded super thin and very dry. Also, they left the BBQ sauce off the BBQ chicken sandwhich! The only thing good about that mistake was that I could put my own sauce on instead but I still couldn't finish the low quality stuff. So I figured I could at least get some happiness from the fries - I mean, that's hard to screw up, right? Wrong! It was obvious that they were already cooked and then reheated. They tasted stale and their special seasoning was horrendous. This is the first time I ever have reviewed any restaurant. It was sooo bad I had to open up an account and warn others to avoid this place.

this place is great- food, service and atmosphere are great. i had the pulled pork and turkey burger sliders and they were very tasty and good. the sides mac and cheese and string beans were also great.

If you order the bbq wings, you're going to get twelve pieces of bbq chicken instead. You might also get ranch dressing instead of bleu cheese. Something else that might happen, is you'll have to repeat yourself about fifteen times when you call to place your order because it's so loud in there. Especially if the number 8 is part of your phone number or apartment number.

If you like to hanging out with 20 year old waisted, puking college kids this is the place. Food is now average at best and the prices are not that reasonable anymore (they used to be). Pulled pork is ok but ribs are tough and brisket is dry (although it had a nice smoke taste). Sides are ok; mashed is the best, but also a bit expensive for what this place is.

I had to post after reading the other reviews! This is by far one my favorite lunch spots. The portion sizes are huge. And in terms of price, where can you have a sit down lunch in NYC for under $10? I love the smoked turkey sandwich with cajun mayo, and the Cuban which has frickles on it! The service was faster and more efficient than some of the other slow southern paced Brother Jimmy's locations.

The food is just okay and certainly not worth it for what you pay for it. Definitely better BBQ to be had in the city. Lunch specials are still fairly expensive.

Went here twice in one week b.c it was so good. Service a tad slow, but not at all terrible. Had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was delicious. Best advice is try for yourself and see - we thought it was great and it is a much needed in this area.
